Art market insider intelligence, breaking news, and art market insights delivered to your inbox weekly.


“Shortly after opening my gallery 20 years ago, Josh approached me with his idea for The Baer Faxt – I think I was one of the first to sign up, and of course in those days it was still an actual “fax”. Since then I don’t think I’ve missed many, and The Baer Faxt has been our consistently reliable, must-read source for news, analysis, and up-to-the-minute auction reports.”



“I love The Baer Faxt. Especially when I am not a part of the piece.”



“The best way to become a player in the art world is to be an under­bidder on a major work of art [at auction]. You don’t have to spend any money. Just raise your hand near one of the top bids on a Warhol or another major lot and Josh will list you in The Baer Faxt among the underbidders.”

“Weekly news, I never miss it. Always matter of fact, interesting questions and invaluable source of information.”



“When I see The Baer Faxt in my inbox, I immediately click to open what I know will be a brief but interesting show in the art about the art world’s comings and goings.”



“The Baer Faxt is the most dependable, transparent and timely source of news about the Art Market. It’s greatest advantage is its willingness to challenge the presumed and politically-correct by presenting questions that challenge the obvious and hackneyed.”


Chairman, Christie's North America & Japan

The Baer Faxt Auction Database

A new essential resource for the art market

An unmatched trove of information that will enable the art industry to transact with unprecedented efficiency by revealing, in a simple-to-use search engine, who has historically bought or sought specific high-value artworks.

"It’s not enough for you in the business to know what a work of art sold for at auction. What’s more important is who bought it—or, perhaps even more valuably if you’re the one looking to sell, the data of who tried to buy it and didn’t get it."
