Description Edit | History

Buying and selling paintings is a very lucrative business, at least that's what Hollywood's led us to believe, and that's the premise of this game. Five different artists have produced a bunch of paintings, and it's the player's task to be both the buyer and the seller, hopefully making a profit in both roles. He does this by putting a painting from his hand up for auction each turn. He gets the money if some other player buys it, but must pay the bank if he buys it for himself. After each round, paintings are valued by the number of paintings of that type that were sold. The broker with the most cash after four rounds is the winner.

Part of the Knizia auction trilogy.

Additional Info
The published rules include a variant that allows Modern Art to be played with only three players, involving a dummy fourth hand. This variant is almost universally reviled by fans of the game. However, the game can be played with 3-players using normal rules and works perfectly fine.
