Does Artistic Value explain the performance of Contemporary Artists?
We examine the contemporary art market of the 100 best artists as classified by the Kunstkompass 2006 in the German magazine Capital in comparison with price achieved by artworks from the same artists sold through auction sales. Using the hedonic regression method, we test whether and in which way classical information (dimensions, materials used, signature, etc.) or new parameters like Kunstkompass ranking play a significant role in the determination of the price. We show that an independent ranking aiming at classifying the artistic value provides a reliable estimate for artworks' value.
