Want to Get Rich Buying Art? Invest in Women

“More than ever, female artists are breaking sales records and being recognized for their role in important art movements.

While the highest price ever paid for an artwork by a woman continues to be a small fraction of that of men, last spring in New York, auction sales records were shattered for the works of 15 female artists, including Krasner’s fellow Abstract Expressionists Joan Mitchell, Helen Frankenthaler and Grace Hartigan. With additional important paintings by women on offer this season — among them Frankenthaler’s rare 1959 work, “Red Square” — there is every reason to expect that more records will tumble.”

A great opinion piece on the new york times.
