Women artists still aren’t commanding the same auction prices as their male counterparts. Still, prices for their works are skyrocketing, according to a new study by Sotheby’s Mei Moses art index.

Mei Moses looks at repeat auction sales and tracks 63,000 objects that have appeared at auction more than once. Its data shows that from 2012 to 2018, prices for works by men went up 8% — while those for works by women went up an incredible 73%. “The bottom line is that the demand for female artists is growing,” said Michael Klein, head of Sotheby’s Mei Moses.
