ART MARKET WATCH
June 22, 2007CRAZY MONEY IN LONDON SALES
"My work sells," said the young Russian artist Dasha Fursey
, who lives in St. Petersburg and shows with Orel Art
in Paris. "But I do not yet have ‘crazy money’." We were at the Venice Biennale
, but the theme of "crazy money" belongs, of course, to the booming art market. And nowhere was crazy money in more evident force -- this week at least -- than at the four days of Impressionist, modern and contemporary art auctions in London, June 18-21, 2007.
