another stellar year for the Canadian art market and there seems to be no
end in sight. Total sales for the year, as recorded in the 2006 edition of
the Canadian Art Sales Index, were a phenomenal $39.877 million, up 17.26%
or almost $6 million over the previous year! No less than 68 paintings sold
for more then $100,000 and artists' records were set throughout the year with
almost careless abandon. Not surprisingly, the season also gave us a new average
price per painting sold of $7956, up 11.65% over the previous year, a clear
sign that the market is prepared to pay for quality Canadian artists. The
new record high annual turnover has also given the Canadian art market its
ninth consecutive annual gain!
What effect has this record-setting year had on the works in your fine art
portfolio? With several sectors of the market showing strong gains it is likely
the value of your collection has improved, and perhaps significantly. You
