Asset pricing theory and the valuation of Canadian paintings
The valuation of Canadian paintings is analysed empirically. Using a sample of auction prices for major Canadian painters for the period 1968-2001, we run hedonic regressions to analyse the influence of various factors, including painter identity, on auction prices, as well as to construct a market price index. This index is used in a second-stage analysis in which we analyse the properties of Canadian art viewed as an investment asset. We apply standard asset pricing theory, as incorporated in the capital asset pricing model (CAPM), to the analysis of price movements in the market for Canadian paintings.
