Well I just can't seem to interpret this any other way...

The art market (not art in itself) is an elitist commodity trade. Nothing more, nothing less.

I'd like to believe that the skill and vision of the artist plays at least some part in the weight their name carries, not always, but at least sometimes.

Most of the time

No.
Definitely not *the* main factor. But of course one of the factors. If it was the only factor no unknow artist would have a chance to get high prizes for their work of art ever.

That's like asking, "what came first, the chicken or the egg?" The artist needs to produce some major works first to gain the renown, and then after that the artist can probably get away with experimentation and straying from their signature.

The artist wouldn't be anything without his/her artwork.

Yes, it's all brand recognition. Like a pair of jeans for $300 and similar ones for $50.
