Description

Many studies have been conducted measuring the price effect of nature on housing. There is little evidence of what the presence of nature in art has on the auction price. I will be performing a hedonic study on a series of early twentieth century paintings to see how the auction price changes when trees, water, animals and other environmental variables are present. This will be compared to works by the same genre of painters that have painted human models or urban settings. The model will also include variables such as size of canvas, year painted, and medium to control for variations that may be caused by these variables.
