L'effet chef d'oeuvre sur le marché des violons.

Translated title of the contribution: Masterpiece effects, evidence on the violins market

Pierre Giot, Alexandre Girard, Marie-Laure Namur

Research output: Working paper


We follow Graddy and Margolis (2011) who study the financial returns obtained by investing in violins. Using the technique of repeat-sales regressions, we analyze if a masterpiece effect is present. We also look at the returns difference between violins sold at auctions and through dealers. In our empirical analysis, we document the existence of a positive masterpiece effect for violins.
