Barrat, when asked about the sale, said his main hope is that “the high price will set a good precedent for other AI art being sold in the future, and that despite the portrait Christie’s chose to auction being very shallow, people will see it and attention will be drawn to actual legitimate artists working with AI—like Mario Klingemann, Helena Sarin, Tom White, to name a few.”

What the Art World Is Failing to Grasp about Christie’s AI Portrait Coup

Indeed, I believe this is the hope of the entire AI artist community. Apart from some of the works by early pioneers like Harold Cohen, AI art has historically not been warmly welcomed by galleries. Until recently, it was almost nonexistent in the primary art market. That may be starting to change. Recently, Nature Morte gallery in New Delhi held an exhibition of AI art entitled “Gradient Descent,” which featured work by Anna Ridler, Mario Klingemann, Tom White, Harshit Agrawal, Jake Elwes, Memo Akten, and Nao Tokui.

Despite some signs of warming, actual AI sales in the art market have been limited to date.

HENI Talks - Josiah Wedgwood: Tycoon of Taste

But he was also, in a sort of almost Steve Jobs kind of way, an obsessive perfectionist. And he was known as ‘Auld Wooden-Leg’, because he lost his leg and he would storm through the pot bank on his wooden leg, with his stick, smashing ware that didn’t meet the right quality threshold. He was hard as hell, he wanted to be the Master Potter to the Universe. And he time and again made sure his workers were working to his level of perfection. When we think of the decorative arts of Britain, we immediately turn to Josiah Wedgwood who helped to design Britain, a change maker and a tastemaker.

Josiah Wedgwood turned this rude, uncultivated craft, as it was called, into this global industry, marrying art, design and technology. It was almost inevitable that he would end up in the pottery business. And after a while he feels he’s sort of flooded the market with this and needs a new innovation.
