This paper is a contribution to the economic analysis of the market for art. In particular, the paper attempts to map the changing tastes for works of art as manifested in the prices of paintings sold at auction. There are two main goals in this work. The first is to draw a map to represent different artists on the surface of a sphere. The second is to describe how “cultivated taste” moves around that space.
