I discovered this little blurb in Artnet's article about the super booming art market:
"Technological advances -- notably the internet -- have made the art market more liquid and more efficient than ever before. Once focused largely to the U.S. and Europe, the art market has spread like wildfire into Latin America, China, India and the Middle East. The result is an art boom that -- dare we say it, even in folly? -- might never quit."
If you read my blog, this comment will sound awfully familiar.
Just watch, there will be an old-school art dealer or consultant who soon will admit that the private art club that they've been clinging to now has a much broader membership.
