Excerpt for upcoming piece on maastricht fair for GalleristNY.com (they should change their name, no offence)

It's impossible to gauge sales at fairs, art is an unusual business where multi-million dollar deals are communicated by whispers. Nothing more need be done to cement a deal. Until the invoice comes that is. But even then, as far as clients who chose to renege, there is no recourse as no signed contract, hence also un-chartable is how many people in fact walk from such agreements after the event. Its happened to me and if you are in art, it's happened to you, no matter from which side of the aisle you hail.

and i forgot to mention art dealers lie on every occasion they can, another reason post fair reports are highly inaccurate.
