$50 million and counting! The Canadian art market up 27.3% in phenomenal record-shattering season!
$50 million! That’s right the elusive barrier has been broken. Total sales for the 2005-2006 auction season, as recorded in the 2007 edition of the Canadian Art Sales Index, were a market-shattering $50.776 million, up an astonishing 27.3% or almost $11 million over the previous exceptional year. The numbers in every quarter are astounding: 91 paintings sold for $100,000 or more, the average price per painting sold jumped almost 18% to $9666, and the average annual rate of return on investment over the past ten years is a more-than-impressive 16.66%.
