Last week I had long face-to-face conversations with three Chelsea dealers, all of them A-list with, collectively, 90 years in the art business. Dealer X just added a project space, is a fitness buff and has a sterling family art pedigree. Dealer Y has a middle-aged stable, an international clientele and a long-term lease. Dealer Z is a rigorous intellectual with auction house connections who commands the respect of the art-world elite.
