Among the artworks uploaded to Artsy fair pages in the first half of 2019, one-fifth (20.1%) were by U.S.–born artists, far more than artists of any other nationality. British artists, at 6.1%, made up the next-largest national cohort, followed by French and German artists at 4.1% and 3.9%, respectively. Brazilian artists were the best represented, in terms of supply, among artists from outside Europe and North America, accounting for 2.9% of all works uploaded to Artsy fair booths during the same period.
If the supply of art featured at fairs was U.S.–centric, demand was even more so. More than a third (33.9%) of all inquiries on art featured at fairs in the first half of 2019 was on work by American artists. (As noted earlier, this may be partly explained by the fact that almost half of visitors to Artsy fair pages originated in the U.S.) Demand for works by British, German, Spanish, and Japanese artists also outpaced supply.
