This book is for art market researchers at all levels. A brief overview of the global art market and its major stakeholders precedes an analysis of the various sales venues (auction, commercial gallery, etc.). Library research skills are reviewed, and advanced methods are explored in a chapter devoted to basic market research. Because the monetary value of artwork cannot be established without reference to the aesthetic qualities and art historical significance of our subject works, two substantial chapters detail the processes involved in researching and documenting the fine and decorative arts, respectively, and provide annotated bibliographies. Methods for assigning values for art objects are explored, and sources of price data, both in print and online, are identified and described in detail. In recent years, art historical scholarship increasingly has addressed issues related to the history of art and its markets: a chapter on resources for the historian of the art market offers a wide range of sources. Finally, provenance and art law are discussed, with particular reference to their relevance to dealers, collectors, artists and other art market stakeholders.

Six major design styles during 1880 - 1940 form the basis of the Modernist Movement which embraces a diverse range of the decorative and applied and graphic arts. Starting with the Arts and Crafts movement in Britain and America we progress through European and American Art Noveau, the Weiner Werkstatte based on Vienna, the De Stijl movement centred in Holland, the Bauhaus emanating from Germany, and ending with the Art Deco movement throughout Europe and America. In a series of essays, Alastair Duncan, brings together these disparate but connected movements under the one umbrella of modernism. The book provides an overview of these movements and links them together. The essays are built around full colour photographs of unique objects from the Modernism Collection of the Norwest Corporation of Minneapolis. The emphasis is on three-dimensional works including metalwork, glassware, ceramics, and selected furniture as well as graphic design mainly in the form of posters.

His name may be unfamiliar to many, but it is estimated that every adult alive in the United States today has handled objects designed by Viktor Schreckengost -- from dinnerware and lawn furniture to toys, bicycles, and pedal cars. Born in Sebring, Ohio, and educated in Vienna, by the mid-1930s, Schreckengost had begun to pursue his interest in industrial design. For American Limoges, he created the first modern mass-produced American dinnerware, called Americana. Along with engineer Ray Spiller, Schreckengost designed the first cab-overengine truck for Cleveland's White Motor Company. By the end of the decade, he had designed the first Mercury Bicycle for Murray. After World War II, Schreckengost created products for Sears, General Electric, Salem China Company, and Harris Printing, among many others. Approximately 100 million of his bicycles were manufactured by Murray.
