As with all assets, the objective of investing is to minimize the downside risk for a given level of return, or to maximize the returns for a given level of risk. The important area of risk analysis in the art market is the subject of Chapter 4. There are a number of statistical methods to measure risk both for individual art assets and relative to other invest­ ments.

One view holds that the apparent decline in some Contemporary prices marks the end of spending spree in this sector by global buyers and is a sign of possible further decline ahead.

See Clare McAndrew, The International Art Market: A Survey of Europe in a Global Context (Helvoirt: TEFAF, 2008). 8. Liquidity refers to the ease at which an asset can be converted to cash or bought and sold on a secondary market without affecting the asset’s value. 9. Developments within the art market such as art funds and other instruments have made it somewhat easier to buy and sell relatively quickly and easily, and even without the risks of full ownership.
