Description

Basquiat paintings regularly fetch tens of millions of dollars, and the recent sale of a little-known Da Vinci topped $450 million. But what are the forces that drive this white-hot art market? With unprecedented access to in-demand artists like Jeff Koons, Gerhard Richter, and Njideka Akunyili Crosby, and to prominent collectors and dealers, Academy Award-nominee Nathaniel Kahn coaxes out the dynamics at play in pricing the priceless while holding up a mirror to our world -- where everything can be bought and sold.

Q&A with Robert Cowley, Canadian Art Specialist and Auctioneer at Cowley Abbott.
