Another bubble just popped

Growing signs of art slump

Just two weeks ago, in the midst of financial turmoil, a collection of Damian Hurst "art" exceeded all price expectations at auction. Yesterday a Freud portrait failed to reach expected price of £7m. Works of art are only worth what the next "investor" will pay for them so are classic bubble fodder. Another asset bubble popped. There can't be many left now.

  • At least land has some function. Modern Art is really worthless as it’s conceptual rather than talent based…

  • Was wondering when. Don’t get me started on that Hurst crap — that art could be seen in biology classrooms around the world for decades.
