ARFA 815 - The Value of Art

3 credits
What is the value of Art? How can it be quantified? In this course we will discuss how in the recent decades the prices of artworks sold at auction skyrocketed and how Art has become a branding phenomenon. Starting from a list of the 10 most expensive artists of this decade we will take museum trips to see these works from life. We will also compare these 10 artists to 10 artists of 10 years ago and to 10 artists from 100 years ago with the purpose of understanding how the Art market works but also how Art was valued then and how it is valued today.
