Editorial ArtCompass is a reference book of contemporary protagonists of the classical arts of painting and graphic art, sculpture and installation, digital art and fine art photography. ArtCompass is designed as a handbook for all art collectors without which the contemporary art market in its current form with an annual volume that far exceeds 20 billion euro could not be imagined, as well as a helpful and competent compendium for all art-oriented audiences including curators and gallery owners. ArtCompass, as stock taking, is a response to the widespread criticism of various art rankings, such as the so-called Bongard's list, and assumes that art can be neither measured nor compared. In this sense, ArtCompass puts the individual artist profiles side by side in alphabetical order while coloured page margins guide through the different artistic genres. ArtCompass lists all important information about an artist in a clear, easy-to-understand way including signature and price range. Each profile is completed by a statement by the artist and a meaningful selection of works. As the editor of ArtCompass, I've been able to refer to a five-figure number of artists from all parts of the world, which has steadily increased in the past fifteen years and with which the publisher is in contact today. I now wish the ambitious user of this guide through the current art scene much pleasure, enjoyment and joy of discovery by using this ground-breaking format and I hope that the book will find a quickly growing community of friends and faithful users.   Ulrich Goette Himmelblau Product details Hardcover: 212 pages .
