The Art Dealers
Almost as long as there has been art to sell and collectors to buy, there have been dealers to bring the two profitably together. It is, at least, a service, and one for which the dealer may properly expect to be paid. More than that, it is often a gamble. A gamble for everyone, from the artist (if he is still alive and hoping to make a living from the exercise of his art) to the final owner. Individual taste, fashion, the state of the market, a correct reading of the personalities involved, all enter into the management of the art market. - Introduction.
