What does the word "skin" mean in the context of the fine art market?

I inquired online about the price of a particular work of art from a gallery in greater Boston. The response contained the following sentence: "This particular piece is listed for $X which is certainly a great deal of money and yet, relative to a lot of the contemporary fine art world, given his skin, demand, and sizing it is a good price." What does the word "skin" mean in this context? Or is it just a typo for "skill"?
