Art Basel 2019

Picasso - Rape of the sabines

 

Pablo Picasso, The Rape of the Sabines, 1962 – Fondation Beyeler, Riehen / Basel

 

The 2019 edition of Art Basel closed on Sunday, June 16, 2019, and the organisers were
able to report buoyant sales to private collections and institutions by galleries across all
market sectors. The fair welcomed 93,000 visitors and collectors from over 80 countries
who were able to view works ranging from early 20th century modern art to the most
contemporary pieces, presented by 290 premier galleries. While there was still strong
representation of European galleries, the show featured returning and new exhibitors
from other parts of the world. A successful new feature this year was the introduction of
a sliding-scale pricing model designed to beneft galleries with smaller stands. Although
my favourite ‘Unlimited’ sector showcased fewer interesting installations, sculptures, wall
paintings and photographic series than last year, I was pleasantly surprised to see many
more works from both established and emerging artists offered at inviting prices.
