Using Fine Art Collectors’ purchasing & selling trends
to Better Understand the Fine Art Market

Focusing on public auction sales results over the last ten years at the top auction houses, Pi-eX offers detailed and insightful analytical reports that enable fine art collectors better to understand the specific dynamics of the fine art market. 

With a unique approach focused on analysing the behavioural trends of art buyers and sellers, Pi-eX 's reports can bring to light key information, which can be critical when purchasing and/or selling fine art.

The foundation of Pi-eX 's research is based on three key principals:

  1. Systematic criteria that can be used to specify the type of report required
  2. Standardised graphs that reflect, clearly and simply, the dynamics of the fine art market: Liquidity, Performance, Volatility
  3. A Pi-eX proprietary database of auction sales from 2007 to the present day, which ensures clean and reliable data.

Pi-eX's STANDARD REPORTS come in two different formats:

 

Pi-eX 's AUCTION REPORTS provide a comprehensive view of auction market MACRO trends via a "top down" picture of all public auction sales at CHRISTIE's, SOTHEBY'S and PHILLIPS.

Using standardised data and graphs, Pi-eX's AUCTION REPORTS allow readers better to understand trends and divergences in the auction market on a monthly, quarterly, semi annual or annual basis.

Pi-eX 's FINE ART REPORTS and ARTISTS REPORTS provide a detailed view of particular auctions or artists via a "bottom up" picture of lots consigned to auction at CHRISTIE's, SOTHEBY'S and PHILLIPS.

Using standardised data and graphs, Pi-eX 's FINE ART REPORTS and ARTISTS REPORTS give readers a sense of liquidity, performance and volatility.

Pi-eX's FILTER REPORTS apply a range of filters to each report

 

Pi-eX 's AUCTION FILTER REPORTS screen results by Auction House (Christie's, Sotheby's and Phillips), by auction type (Fine Art, Jewellery & Watches, Decorative, Private Collections), by auction time (Day or Evening Sale) or by auction location (US, UK, China, France, Switzerland, or Rest of the World).

Using standardised data and graphs, Pi-eX 's AUCTION FILTER REPORTS allow readers to identify key trend drivers in the auction market

Using standardised data and graphs, Pi-eX 's MICRO FILTER REPORTS allow readers to identify key trend drivers at a particular auction or for the works of a particular artist.

Pi-eX's TAILORED reports are built around specific filters:

Using standardised data and graphs, Pi-eX 's MACRO TAILORED REPORTS allow readers to identify the key historic performance drivers of the auction market.
