Sample text

For example, the auctioneer typically does not reveal the identity of the purchaser, if there is one, and this creates strong incentives for the ring members to bid privately in opposition to the interests of the ring. An explanation for the key determinants of the seller’s reserve price may be found in models of search (Mortensen, 1970), where the seller may expect to offer the item at auction more than once, or even to sell it privately to a dealer as an alternative. The highest observed price in a particular auction may be thought of as a ‘job offer’ that will be accepted only if it exceeds the reserve price.

Although the above description outlines commonly accepted practice in auctions, many people describe them differently. For example, Milgrom (1989) states: ‘the auctioneer begins with the lowest acceptable price – the reserve price – and proceeds to solicit successively higher bids from the customers until no one will increase the bid. ’ As noted above, real auctioneers do not reveal the reserve price in this way, and many ‘knocked-down’ items may be unsold. In another example, Graham and Marshall (1987) state: ‘When the bidding stops, the auctioneer will generate a false or phantom higher bid if he feels that the high bidder is “good for another bump”‘.

In spite of the strong competition, art dealers, especially on the primary art market, may in practice be engaged in monopolistic competition: they often represent artists on an exclusive basis, at least within a predefined geographical area. indd 28 19/05/2011 16:33 Art dealers 29 Dealers on the primary and the secondary market The way art dealers operate differs radically between the primary market where new works of art are sold for the first time, and the secondary or resale market. On the secondary or resale market, dealers take works on consignment from collectors or institutions who want to sell them.
