ArtPrice’s Top 50 Contemporary Artists

Artprice,  the company that examines all the information about the art market, has released their annual list of Contemporary artists by annual sales.

This 2015, Jean-Michel Basquiat comes out on top, again, but at a much lower level than last year! Next, you cand find Christopher Wool and Jeff Koons, even though the author of ‘Balloon Dog’ sees his third place quite distant from the top of the list.


It should be noted that this list does not include artists like Andy Warhol and Gerhard Richter who are generally referred to as Contemporary artists but don’t fit Artprice’s cutoff based on their birth year.
