Art Market Research History
Art Market Research was founded in 1978 by Robin Duthy. As an investment analyst in the City of London, he noticed that, while conventional investments were intensely studied for past performance and future potential, no systematic analysis of the markets for art, antiques and collectibles had been undertaken. Working with the London School of Economics, Robin devised a sophisticated methodology of trimming and smoothing mechanisms which made it possible to eliminate seasonal and other distortions.
‘Without Knowledge, people are not merely less likely to make money, it is rather that without knowledge they are very likely to lose it.’
