British artist Tracey Emin seems stressed and ruffled as she weaves through crowds of deep-pocketed collectors to reach three of her pieces on prominent display at Art Basel.One of Britain's most famous living artists, Emin said showing her work at the Lehmann Maupin gallery booth at Basel, inside halls teeming with art enthusiasts and investors, was very different to exhibiting in dedicated museums and galleries.Investment in art just to turn a buck, though, is something Emin says has no patience for.Emin also has around 50 of her often highly sexualized works on display at Vienna's Leopold Museum, alongside 15 similar, if tamer drawings and poems by Egon Schiele, one of her great inspirations.Emin admits that her previous "bad girl" image has shifted over the years as she has become a staple of the art world establishment.
