Routledge (2005)
(Chinese edition- Chongqing University Press, (2013)


This book takes a neo-classical economic approach to its study of the international art market. It provides an  in-depth analysis of the key areas of investigation in the field of art and business. From The structure and mechanisms that fuel the market to the behaviour and performance of the main markets for art. Exploring factors such as new tax initiatives, the constraints placed on the market by public sector museums and galleries, art investment and the illicit trade.
'Robertson succeeds in integrating various contributions from the artistic, economic, and managerial fields. The result is a comprehensive view of the market that tries to give an answer to some of the most discussed topics in the sector' (Silvia Bagdadli, Journal of Cultural Economics (2006) 30:237-238)
