Art | Basel Miami, a year-end review of the 2023 art market.


On the occasion of the contemporary art fair, Art | Basel Miami, 8 to 10 December, a glance at the art market at the end of the year.


The median expenditure on art and antiques by high-net-worth collectors surveyed across 11 markets worldwide reached $65,000 in 2022, up by 19% on 2021.

The majority of spending so far in 2023 was on paintings (58%), with works on paper the second-largest component (13%).

Gen X collectors outspent their younger peers in some of the largest-value mediums in 2023, averaging the highest overall spending for paintings ($145,000 against $108,000 for millennials). They were also the highest spenders on works on paper, although millennials still spent more on sculptures, installations, photography, and film or video art.

Gen Z collectors had the highest average expenditure on prints and digital art, indicating that these could be important and accessible mediums for younger collectors entering the art market.
