Is there a bubble in the art market?

This article from CNNMoney discusses the current art market bubble. Recently, there had been a record-setting boom in the art market. While some art experts argue that this new trend might be a rising bubble, it is most likely that many rich buyers are simply putting their feet in to have some art in their ‘portfolios’. However, no one can argue that the prices will continue rising due to the growing demand from overseas collectors and high-net worth individuals. Therefore, this is a prime example that shows the relationship between high demand and increasing price.
