Economics Letters, 2017, vol. 159, issue C, 201-203

Abstract: Using a large art auction dataset from mainland China, we examined whether investors exhibited a home bias in the domestic art market. The results show that, with all else being equal, artworks auctioned in the artist’s home cities tend to have higher prices.
