    The variable Artist influences the market price of a work of art. Both Biblio-metric and Net-metric variables are built using documental and digital sources of information to quantify or measure the variable Artist. The variable Annual Turnover is explained through the Variable Artist.An original database has been built including all transactions of the most quoted artists in terms of turnover in the international auction houses during the period 1997-2005. The proposed regression models show the Annual Turnovers are explained in a 50% and in a 70% by the Biblio-metric variable and the Net-metric variables respectively, which points out the Net metric variables have more relevance as explanatory variables of the Art Market.Also, Pearson correlation coefficients between both kinds of metric variables and the annual turnovers suggest spacing in the time between both kind of metrics Variables. Se han construido variables Biblio-métricas y Red-métricas, utilizando información documental y digital en enero del 2007, para medir o cuantificar el autor y explicar la facturación alcanzada en las casas de subastas en el periodo 1997-2005, con las obras de los primeros artistas del ranking mundial. Los modelos obtenidos por regresión indican un porcentaje de explicación mayor del 50% con la variable Biblio-métrica y de más del 70% con las Red-métricas, lo que indica la mayor oportunidad de estas últimas para explicar el mercado del arte.Asimismo, los coeficientes de correlación de Pearson entre las variables métricas y la facturación anual indican un distanciamiento entre los dos tipos de variables a medida que se aproximan en el tiempo.
