This doctoral thesis consists of three chapters. Chapter 1 studies the risk, price, and return features on art investments and compares them with other alternative assets and traditional financial markets. Chapter 2 investigates the color effects in abstract art on pricing and returns by combining a large-scale laboratory experiment and real auction analysis. Chapter 3 applies textual analysis and incorporates and categorizes provenance information as novel factors in pricing and return models.
