Perhaps because it was Jackson Pollock; but still, $12 million for a decaying stuffed shark? Once again, these examples aern't even the tip of the art-world iceberg. In 'The $12 Stuffed Shark' marketing and economics professor Don Thompson takes readers deep inside the world of art buying and auctions for the purpose of shedding much needed light on the psychology and economics of those buying and selling the world of moden art. With entertaining and intriguing prose, this enlightening work is sure to surprise anyone who (will pay anything) appreciates art.

    Why would a 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? Intriguing and entertaining, The $12 Million Stuffed Shark is a Freakonomics approach to the economics and psychology of the contemporary art world. Why were record prices achieved at auction for works by 131 contemporary artists in 2006 alone, with astonishing new heights reached in 2007? Don Thompson explores the money, lust, and self-aggrandizement of the art world in an attempt to determine what makes a particular work valuable while others are ignored. This book is the first to look at the economics and the marketing strategies that enable the modern art market to generate such astronomical prices. Drawing on interviews with past and present executives of auction houses and art dealerships, artists, and the buyers who move the market, Thompson launches the reader on a journey of discovery through the peculiar world of modern art. Surprising, passionate, gossipy, revelatory, The $12 Million Stuffed Shark reveals a great deal that even experienced auction purchasers do not know.

    The 8 essays of this volume derive from an eponymous symposium held at the U. of Notre Dame in February 2007. Presented by a distinguished group of archaeologists, art historians, museum directors, and professors of law, the essays discuss the ethical and practical issues that concern how antiquities come into museums, addressing in particular international laws against looting and purchasing looted goods, and the issues that archaeologists, museum directors, and historians face when studying goods acquired without provenance. An appendix contains the text of a UN Convention on cultural property. The volume is not indexed. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
