Gender bias in art buyers


Some dismaying research from the University of Technology in Sydney (UTS).

  • An international team of researchers examined 1.5 million auction transactions in 45 countries across 40 years. 
  • The study revealed that works by women artists attract prices that are nearly 50% lower than those for works by men.
  • Even after removing sales over $1 million – the Rembrandts and the Picassos –  there was still a 29% discount for female artists.
