The global art trade is not a transparent world: Paintings are sold for millions of dollars even though the actual cost of paint and canvas were a few dollars only. How do these prices come about?
This series looks behind the scenes of the dazzling art industry. Director Grit Lederer follows art dealers around the world. The protagonists of the series are Larry Gagosian, possibly the most powerful art dealer in the world at the moment, Gerd Harry Lybke, who established the Leipzig School with Neo Rauch on the international art market and Paul Cassirer who brought the French impressionists to Germany.
