1. Two Trusted Databases for Two Different Markets

The artnet Price Database Fine Art and Design contains auction results for all paintings, prints, sculptures, works on paper, installations, and design from the 20th and 21st centuries, while the artnet Price Database Decorative Art includes objects such as furniture, silver, porcelain, ceramics, glass, rugs, carpets, clocks, books, jewelry, watches, and more.

Both databases have become the most trusted art market research tool for auction houses, galleries, appraisers, collectors, art enthusiasts, and students.

2. Unparalleled Scope


Our data goes back 30 years, with over 10 million color-illustrated auction results from more than 329,000 artists—the most comprehensive archive of auction results ever recorded.

3. A Global Network

We currently cover over 1,700 houses in more than 50 countries, ranging from the largest international houses to smaller regional auctions. Users can access this global network to discover comparable lots to facilitate appraisals, or to gauge the current art market.
