Price Check! Here’s What Sold—and For How Much—at Art Basel Miami Beach 2023

Here's what dealers say they sold at the 2023 edition of the fair.

Van de Weghe's presentation at Art Basel Miami Beach.

‘Tis the season for one final “Price Check” of the year! Art Basel Miami Beach officially wrapped on Sunday, marking the end of the official art-world calendar for 2023. Reports on the ground from the fair revealed a more toned-down edition, with nary a piece of produce taped to the wall, or indeed, anyone attempting to eat all $120,000 worth of it. The lack of a “viral” artwork aside, there were plenty of gallery debuts, impressive artist presentations, buzzy ancillary events, and of course, a lot of money changing hands.

After a year marked by a significantly tempered market at both auctions and fairs, it’s no surprise that, as Artnet’s Katya Kazakina reported, “Miami Rewards Dealers Who Bring Works Priced to Sell.” That certainly means different things to different levels of collectors but the reported sales from dealers at the headline event reflected that while many (but not all!) $10 million and $20 million works lingered on booth walls, works priced $100,000 and under were snapped up quickly.

Below, we’ve rounded up a selection of works dealers say they sold at Art Basel Miami Beach (or before), and the asking price they claimed for them. All prices have been converted into USD for ease of reading.

More eye-catching was the large tree, thick-armed, with a big family of squirrels living in its tall branches. From there, my house at the end of the block could also be seen, sitting stoutly like a cat loaf., (2023) at Blum Gallery
