Artnet Auctions

Through Artnet Auctions, artworks by sought -after modern, Post - war, and contemporary artists regularly sell in a five - to six -figure dollar range . Fee - based revenue at Artnet Auctions increased by 25% to 1 . 2 million USD in the first three months of 2021, c ontinuing its strong growth trajectory and setting a new revenue record for a first quarter . In 2020, Artnet Auctions was one of only a few options on the market to buy and sell art in a cost - effective way and without the time constraints of traditional au ctions . The online -only auction model is well on its way to becoming the industry standard for the digital age .

April 2021 was another record month for Artnet Auctions with fee -based revenue increasing by 49% to $ 660k USD year -over-year, resulting in an increase of 33% to $1 . 8 million year to date.

Price Database

The Price Database is an online database of more than 14 million color - illustrated auction results from leading international auction houses . Price Database revenue increased slightly by 3% to 1 . 9 million USD in the first quarter. After the auction market's drastic downturn in 2020, the online archive's results benefited from the overall market recovery and an increase in monthly subscribers since the start of the year . An upturn in auction activ ity generally increases the demand for data as the Price Database's highly reliable and transparent auction results remain an essential research tool for art market participants .

For April, Artnet recorded a revenue increase of 6% to $650k USD for the Price Database segment, resulting in an increase of 4% to $ 2 .6 million year to date .


Gallery Network

The Gallery Network represents the world's most prestigious galleries . Gallery Network revenue increased by 4% to 1. 3 million USD in the first quarter due to a higher number of memberships and a decline in cancellations . Despite the ongoing challenges galleries face in light of lockdowns and intense competition, a membership in the Gallery Network helps galleries boost their online presence and facilitate trans actions . For April, Artnet recorded a revenue increase of 21% to $440k USD, resulting in an increase of 8% to $ 1 . 7 million year to date .


Advertising revenue declined by 23% to 849k USD in the first quarter. Luxury retailers and art businesses slashed their marketing budgets in 2020 to cut costs and had not re - started their campaigns in the first quarter of 2021. As stated in the Quarterly I nterim Statement for the First Quarter of 2021, Artnet expects to report a strong recovery for Advertising revenues for the second quarter .

For April, Artnet already recorded a revenue increase of 53% to $410k USD, resulting in a decrease of just 8% to $ 1 .3 million year to date .

Artnet's total revenue in the first quarter increased by 2% or 94,000 USD to 5 . 2 million USD year - over -year. Year to date total revenue was $ 7. 4 million USD as of April, an increase of 8% compared to the previous year. In April, all segments showed moderate to strong revenue growth for the first time this year, in line with the prediction for 2021 . With Advertising showing strong recovery, Artnet is set to achieve a strong second quarter .

Artnet is steaming ahead with investments in Network Maintenance as well as Product Development and Engineering, reducing Income from Operations from -242k USD to -681k USD year to date as of April, as anticipated .


Artnet News is the world's dedicat ed 24 - hour international online art market newswire . On May 5th, 2021, Artnet News Pro was launched . The partial paywall adds a new revenue source to Artnet News, the most read online publication in the artworld . Besides revenue from the paywall, Artnet Ne ws will continue generating revenue from advertising clients running their campaigns on the website .


Artnet generates more traffic than any other website in the art market . Our global reach is key to success for our clients in selling artworks, pr omoting their services, and running successful campaigns on our website . On average, 6 million Unique Users visited Artnet this year as of end of April, as compared to 4 . 7 million in 2020 - which is an increase of 2 8% .
