Why do you think being Jewish plays such a big role, though?

But yeah, it's definitely true what you're saying, Dan Colen is definitely doing a lot of things right.

As far as the art market is concerned it is simple: many are disproportionally rich and they like to support each other, if there is talent there.

I know quite a few young artists who have gone through "Holocoust" stages, where they did a lot of paintings themed specifically to that market. It certainly helped their cause.

The Chinese are similar and they are getting richer by the hour. That is why being a talented artist with Chinese roots is a plus nowadays.

German & Austrian collectors also like to support their young artists by buying their paintings while they are priced at 5.0000-10.000$ and are just getting famous.

The rich in EE & Russia only spend money on already famous or dead artists of their nationality. The young ones have to make a name for themselves in the West first, despite massive money available in those parts. It is some sort of inferiority complex and lack of "prestige" for the wealthy to buy a piece of art that is not fetching top-dollar prices at Sotheby's yet.

Being Jewish just extends your buying appeal to the whole world, since your nationality matters less then.
