Kusin & Company maintains a database of the nearly 4,000
dealers and auctioneers in Europe and the United States who, among them, are responsible
for well over 80% of the total business conducted in the art economy. Since 1999, Kusin
has conducted three comprehensive dealer polls and one poll of auctioneers.
The results have created objective reference points, both quantitative and qualitative,
that have proven central to increasing the capabilities of clients, the efficacy of both
public policy analysts and corporate strategic managers, and for financial intermediaries,
including lenders and wealth managers.
