Alan is best known as the publisher of Art Business. His advisory is the first economical step for artists and estates who need a sound overview for planning their future. Alan is also the author of The Art of Buying Art: How to Evaluate and Buy Art Like a Professional Collector (revised in 2018). He always puts his readers squarely in the shoes of dealers and appraisers. Because he knows the rules of the art market game, his book also stands out for being as indispensable for artist estates as it is for collectors — which, in turn, gives insights to artists and estates. Alan has been consulting both artists and galleries for decades. He’s been quoted in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and many other financial and art market publications.
