Is Canadian Art a good investment? How does it compare
with other investment opportunities? Should you be including it in your
investment portfolio? If so, which artists should you buy, and which avoid?
You'll find the answers and just about everything else you wanted to know
about the Canadian art market but didn't know who to ask in Made in
Canada! An Investor's Guide to the Canadian Art Market.
The book provides a 25 year, in-depth business analysis
of the Canadian art market. It tells you who's hot, who's not, and who's
next. Divided into three sections, Part I is a brief analysis of the market
between 1977-2002, including the market's strengths and weaknesses, market
statistics, and investment comparisons. Part II looks at the seventeen
individual WPL Canadian Art Indices, recognised as the barometer of Canadian
art market activity. The indices cover a variety of different sectors
of the Canadian art market including the Group of Seven, Canadian Women
Artists, Canadian Prints, Sculpture, Historical Watercolours, and the
Blue Chip artists to name a few.
Each Index commentary includes a brief history of its
particular sector of the market, average annual returns on investment
over 1, 5, 10, and 23 years, and a look at what the future holds in store.
Part III looks at the top Canadian art performers. Here
you'll find the most active artists at auction, the top prints, sculptures
and watercolours, the next best artists to watch out for, and the individual
record prices for the top 100 artists and paintings at auction.
This book is an essential guide for both the established
collector and anyone interested in adding fine art to their investment
