Maybe you have been navigating the art market for a while, perhaps you are a newcomer, or you are just curious to know more, in either cases Noah Horowitz’s richly documented, researched and enjoyable Art of the Deal: Contemporary Art in a Global Financial Market, would be the perfect tool to dive into the market with the proper gear. “Noah Horowitz exposes the inner workings of the contemporary art market, explaining how this unique economy came to be, how it works, and where it’s headed. He takes a unique look at the globalization of the art world and the changing face of the business, offering the clearest analysis yet of how investors speculate in the market and how emerging art forms such as video and installation have been drawn into the commercial sphere.” (2011, Princeton University Press)
