"Why would a very smart New York investment banker pay $12 million for the decaying, stuffed carcass of a shark? By what alchemy does Jackson Pollock's drip painting No. 5, 1948 sell for $140 million? And why does a leather jacket with silver chain attached, tossed in a corner and titled 'No-One Ever Leaves', bring $690,000 at a 2007 Sotheby's auction?" "This intriguing and entertaining book is the first to look at the economics of the modern art world and the marketing strategies which power the market to produce such astronomical prices for the latest Hirst, Koons or Emin. Don Thompson talks to auction houses, dealers and collectors, and reveals the psychology behind the art market, showing how far it is driven by lust and self-aggrandizement of possession. It is a world, the author shows, in which brand is all-important, and which in many ways has most in common with the branded world of luxury fashion. The result is a fascinating, shrewd and highly readable insight into a modern-day phenomenon. In contemporary art, you are nobody until somebody brands you."--BOOK JACKET.… (mer)

If you don’t follow art trends within the market then you will hate this book. It is a lot of numbers about sales, and the only reason it would be thrilling to a reader is if they’re interested in professional art. Working as an art handler on and off over the course of 2011, I had a very limited view of the art market. I understood that it was a game for the rich, and in many ways, fixed. The $12 Million Stuffed Shark may not be 100% factual but it will still open your mind to many realities that, until now, have been kept hidden. What is the difference between an art dealer, a gallery, and an auction house? Why is contemporary art catching up in prices with the old masters? Why do some artists with limited talent still get into big galleries? Is art a good investment? Why is it so important to be branded? All of these questions, and more, are answered in this book. If you are planning to go to art school, become an artist, or already are one, this is a mandatory read, especially if you hope to find even a little success in the gallery system. This has warped my thinking. I feel as if many of the mysteries of the art world have been revealed. I feel like an insider now. Thank you Don Thompson. ( )

A curious and intoxicating read that will leave you dizzy with amazement tinged with disappointment over the contemporary art market. ( )

One problem for the agent trying to sell the stuffed shark was the $12 million asking price for this work of contemporary art.
