Artprice had given the price for Leonardo da Vinci's Salvator Mundi 3 months in advance (AOF press agency) and has explained it in its different releases including the following:
Artprice also explained in a interview with French newspaper JDD that the Museum Industry® economy (conceptualized by Artprice since 2005) is the foundation of the construction of this record price, which could only be understood through the Art Market's paradigm shift of which she has become the main driving force.
thierry Ehrmann: "The absolute proof has been given this morning when Jean-Luc Martinez, President-Director of the Louvre museum, in an interview with RTL radio, stated that exhibiting the Salvator Mundi alongside the Mona Lisa in the context of a Leonardo da Vinci exhibition for the celebration of the Grand Louvre's 30th Anniversary was under negotiation. The AFP dispatch, released a few minutes ago, also reported the capital information through its international news feed.
That is the heart of the Museum Industry®'s business model, that sees such an exhibition have an exponential impact on the growth of the Louvre's ticket sales.
Also, no one will dare doubt the statement of a senior official at the French Ministry of Culture.
The new economic science – taught by Artprice – is relentlessly pushing prices up. Our conviction about the evolution of the art market started with a simple observation: the exponential nature of art museum openings around the world. In 2014 an Artprice meta-study revealed that more art museums opened between January 2000 and December 2014 than during the entire 19th and 20th centuries.
It also revealed that roughly 700 new art museums are being built every year on 5 continents, each with international vocations and each with at least 4,500 artworks.
This massive expansion of the global museum industry® goes hand-in-hand with a major soft-power competition between the world's nations, particularly its major powers (China / US) and the Gulf States. Indeed, soft-power rivalry is leading the art market inexorably towards spectacular new auction results. In our well-documented view, we are likely to see results around the billion dollar threshold by 2020.”
Indeed, thanks to its direct Intranet link to major Auction Houses, Artprice is aware of plans for prestige sales in the near future. According to our econometrics department and our Big Data algorithms, we can already predict that several sales will generate results in excess of one billion dollars, notably Christie's sale of the David and Peggy Rockefeller collection next May in New York.
The Art Market, as reported by Artprice in its reports and the present release, is recording one record after the other for all periods – Old Master, Modern Art & Contemporary Art. To name a few: Kerry James Marshall - Still Life with Wedding Portrait - Christie's NY 15 Nov. 2017; Carmen HERRERA - Untitled (Orange and Black) (1956) - Phillips NY 16 Nov. 2017; this week, the record for Camille Claudel was shattered at Artcurial, with the preemption of many museums, precisely.
Also, The New York Times agreed with Artprice's analysis on the Museum Industry®.
