Sample text

When the bidding stops, the item for sale is said to be ‘knocked down’ or ‘hammered down’. The price at which an item is knocked down or hammered down is called the ‘hammer price’. What is not so well understood is that the items knocked down have not necessarily been sold. Here is the reason. The seller will generally set a ‘reserve price’, and if the bidding does not reach this level the item will go unsold. Auctioneers say that an unsold item has been ‘bought in’. ) An item that has been bought in may be put up for sale at a later auction, sold elsewhere, or taken off the market.

Indd 35 19/05/2011 16:33 36 A handbook of cultural economics exist. Some art dealers, such as the illustrious Paris and New York Wildenstein Gallery, are known to have had works for decades in inventory before they finally managed to sell them. Also, unlike assets on financial markets, works of art are hardly divisible. Although some pieces of art have been bought by consortia of investors and collectors, such as Damien Hirst’s diamond-covered skull For the Love of God, it is generally impossible to buy, for example, a one-hundredth share in a painting by Rembrandt.

First of all, an artist cannot be contractually enforced to continue producing valuable works of art in the future. Second, if a contract were written up, it would be difficult for one party to monitor the other and ensure that all terms of the contract were complied with. Third, litigation is expensive in case of breach of contract and may damage the reputation of the artist and the gallery. Transaction costs involved in developing a contract, monitoring and litigation are, in other words, high in the case of consignments.
