How Has 2020 Impacted the Global Art Market?

How Has 2020 Impacted the Global Art Market?
The global art market is a $67 billion-a-year business and has been growing steadily in recent years, alongside the stock market and the housing market. But unlike some other markets, the COVID-19 pandemic has had less of an economic impact on the art market.
Interview of Sarah Thornton,Art Market Expert and Author :
I think we’re in the midst of a complete reevaluation of the canon, i.e., the top 50 most important artists. That’s because our sense of what’s important and our sense of the cultural landscape has shifted so dramatically. The art market is not a singular market. It is made up of thousands of artists’ markets, and while one rises, another descends.

Art market fluctuations related to the global Covid-19 pandemic: what about art investment?

<div>Art market fluctuations related to the global Covid-19 pandemic: what about art investment?</div>
Art isn't necessarily impacted by the risks commonly associated with the financial market, which makes it a lower call risk as an investment.
"Art collectors are waiting until the public part of the market opens to sell their art, while art investors are using this time to find interesting stressed opportunities," Sachs told Business Insider. "This global pandemic is clearly a new paradigm for all asset classes. We don't have any precedent or foresight in our recent history to understand the true long-term effects of such a crisis on the art market."

Le décès d'Alberto Uderzo, le monde des arts en deuil

Le décès d'Alberto Uderzo, le monde des arts en deuil
Annoncé par sa famille ce 24 mars, Albert Uderzo, célèbre dessinateur, est mort à l’âge de 92 ans.
Il s'en est allé "dans son sommeil à son domicile à Neuilly d'une crise cardiaque sans lien avec le coronavirus. Il était très fatigué depuis plusieurs semaines”.
Il est le créateur, au côté de René Goscinny, de la BD Asterix. Aujourd'hui, il s'agit de la BD française la plus traduite, lue et vendue de toute l’Histoire.
Lors de son interview en 2013 pour le magazine LesInrocks, il affirmait : "non, il n’y a pas lieu d’être nostalgique. On regrette toujours de ne plus être jeune, mais l’essentiel, c’est de bien avoir vécu ce qu’on a vécu, ce qui a été mon cas."
