Printmaking has always been the populist art form since religious woodcuts and engravings from the 15th century. Understandably so, with their ability to ‘spread the gospel’ of biblical stories and introductions to the artist’s talents. The multiplied image has grown and evolved in 600 years using an almost infinite array of techniques which has only aided the variety and importance of the craft. The secondary auction market for editioned prints and multiples, from Old Master to Contemporary, ebbs and flows as other art markets do, but is generally the one of the most steadfast and resilient categories. From the seemingly unstoppable Pop print demand, to a more tame, classic Modern market, and whatever the latest trends of the season prove to be, let us look at the current state of this collecting category and see what nuances have developed in the mix.

As we appear to be in a current market high, many works are achieving auction records each sale and it is believed there will be continued steady growth, especially given the increasing number of buyers due to the power of the internet with its vast reach and influence. Kelly Troester, Phillips, will illustrate these ideas with a variety of examples from recent brick-and-mortar auctions (especially those in New York just occurring two weeks prior to this lecture) and also take a look at how the Online auction print market is developing. This will lead into further questions of: What does the current print collector look like? and, Are we able to cultivate/educate a new millennial generation of engaged collector in similar or different ways than other generations?
