Reviews

"Bringing an economist's curiosity to the inner workings of the contemporary art market, Don Thompson manages once again to explain, in laymen's terms, how a lot of it works." --Sarah Douglas, Culture Editor, "The New York Observer" "Don delivers entertaining and thoughtful insights into the inner workings of the art business, and does so in style! Check for Don's pointers on how to play the quiz of the contemporary art market. Very rewarding reading." --Sergey Skaterschikov, Founder, Skate's Art Market Research "A highly readable account of the booming market for contemporary art, post 2008. Art economist Don Thompson lays bare the world of high-octane auctions, canny collectors, culture-hungry new economies and opaque million-dollar art deals."--Georgina Adam, art market columnist, "The Financial Times," London "I started reading "The Supermodel and the Brillo Box" and could not put it down until I finished it!
