  • GORDON'S PRINT PRICES, BOOK FORM, 2004

    Posted May 17, 2004

    Gordon's Art Reference print and photograph price references are the best available anywhere, superior to those of other art price publishers for a number of reasons. To begin with, Gordon's sales results contain technical data not found in other references including quality of image impressions, paper types, condition information, and margin details (as described in auction catalogues). Gordon's also provides extensive reference book bibliographies, and its editorial staff corrects incorrect titles, editions or states, catalogue raisonne numbers, and other errors that appear in auction catalogue listings. Additionally, titles of prints are translated into the language of the catalogue raisonne for many major artists.

    Gordon's Print Price Annual 2004 contains 50,000 international auction prices for prints in all price ranges sold during the 2003 auction year, with no minimum price cut-offs, prices for buy-ins (items that fail to sell), and withdrawn lots (items withdrawn from auctions before sales take place). Sales records include those for Old Master, Modern, and Contemporary fine prints; decorative, historical, botanical, topographical, and Japanese prints; vintage, fine art, and film posters; illustrated books, livres d'artiste (artist books), books and periodicals with original graphics; Picasso ceramics; and more.
