  Net Scrapes
by Barbara Pollack (Excerpt)

Do your homework. Check the market value of the work you're considering buying. The Internet itself is a good place to start. Onview.com, for example, which represents some 325 galleries, gives current retail prices. And auction database artnet provides access (for an annual subscription price of $30 and up) to 2 million auction results from more than 500 auction houses worldwide, dating back to 1989. Collectors also can consult Christie's Lot Finder or Sothebys.com, whose database contains the results of recent sales.

  Revenge of the Nerds (Excerpt)
Christie's and Sotheby's have a lot more than justice to worry about. They've got people like Julie Rosefsky, a 30-year-old lawyer who attends all the Museum of Modern Art young collector events. She goes on the gallery tours. She consumes information on the Web. "Maybe there's an Old World charm when you walk into Christie's, but the Net is going to open doors to a lot more buyers," she says. "What's great about the Internet is you get a lot of information in your own home, without being made to feel like you are asking embarrassing questions. It breaks down the aura of intimidation."

Rosefsky recently made one of her first purchases-a black-and-white photograph by Mario Giacomelli that she bought for $1,700. But she didn't buy it at Christie's, she bought it at artnet, an all-purpose site with gallery listings from 1,000 dealers, its own database and online auctions. "When you walk into an auction house, just to register to bid, you have to show your financial status," she says. "But to bid online all you need is your American Express card." Rosefsky isn't going to change her mind about this, and as Christie's and Sotheby's know full well, her credit limit is only going to go up.

  The Faces of Power: Pioneer Power, Hans Neuendorf
by Steven Vincent (Excerpt)

Art & Auction once again surveys those people who, in the opinion of our editors and writers, have had an important impact this year on the art world's many sectors. We look at who's up, who's down - any why. In addition, we profile in depth two men, Musée Guimet director Jean-François Jarrige and Internet pioneer Hans Neuendorf, and one TV program, Antiques Roadshow, that we believe each represent, in their very different ways, significant forces for renewal and change.

  Warhol Meets Your Wall
by Alexandra Peers (Excerpt)

Many of his prints are ubiquitous, of course, at galleries and on dot-com art sites. But savvy collectors prefer buying from the original print publisher, like Ronald Feldman Fine Arts in New York. One tip before buying: Skim old auction catalogs (sometimes available at galleries) to see what's sold, and what hasn't, and at what prices. Online sites Artfact Inc. and artnet sell such information to subscribers, but preliminary data is available without membership.

  Cutting-Edge Opportunities: Benefit Auction Benefits Buyers, Artists and ICI at artnet
by Lisa W. Romano

In a combined act of charitable giving and exposure for its services, artnet sponsored its sixth online benefit auction, on behalf of Independent Curators International, in October.

The event had two components: a two-week online auction of 30 items, and a silent auction of 32 items at ICI's 25th Anniversary Gala in New York City on October 26.

"We had the lots online for two weeks in advance of the night of the event," said Karen Amiel, artnet's VP of Content Development and Promotion. "What's nice about this is that we do a preview online of the lots which are available at the event, and we do an online auction. (more)

  Beginners and Experts Alike Vie for Picasso Creations on the Internet
by Lisa W. Romano

artnet's recent Picasso auction might best be described as having something for everyone: the 65 prints, ceramics and drawings offered covered a price spectrum from $1,000 to above $20,000. But what the organizers noticed, and may even have been aiming for, was the participation of beginning collectors. (more)
