Artprice launches the world’s most comprehensive collaborative “wiki” on art and artists.


Artprice launches the world’s most comprehensive collaborative “wiki” on art and artists.

Artprice is the world’s primary specialist for art market prices and indices with more than 30 million indices and auction results covering over 586,000 artists. Artprice Images (R) offers unlimited access to the world’s largest art market database, a library of 108 million photos or representations of artworks from the year 1700 to the present day, each accompanied by pertinent commentary by our art historians.

Over recent years, Artprice frequently heard artists, beneficiaries, copyright managers, art market professionals, valuers, museums, art historians, sociologists, collectors and art lovers of all kinds express their wish to share their knowledge and their private documentation.

A hard core of 12 million regular contributors, according to thierry Ehrmann, founder and Ceo of

In total, this community represents a hard core of some 12 million regular contributors who will have to register with Artprice to monitor the evolution of their pages and check, modify or supplement the available information.

Artprice’s historians and editors will of course have final control over the information and will be the only persons authorized to open the accounts of regular contributors.

In addition, they will be able to perform immediate information quality checks and, by the same token, certify contributor authorizations, thanks primarily to Artprice’s 81 different databases (including biographies, auction results, artists’ values and price indices, signatures and monograms, catalogues raisonnés, auction houses, art galleries and dealers, archives, etc.).

After an exhaustive research into the subject, it became clear that a « wiki » of this magnitude does not exist and would be way beyond the means of any other organization.

Artprice is opening its multilingual “wiki” with more than a million artists including 586,000 artists listed on and linked to tens of millions of artworks. The information will be available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Chinese. You can find this new art market data source on:

Regarding the Artprice wiki for Chinese artists, Artprice will rely primarily on its faithful State-backed partner, the Artron Group, via Art Market Monitor of Artron (AMMA).

This operation, which Artprice has been preparing for almost a year, represents a major contribution to Art Market history, and a contribution that is free of charge.

Moreover, for Artprice it represents an opportunity to significantly expand its subscribed client-base to a pool of 12 million authorized contributors.
