A two day seminar aimed at bringing out new research in the area of collecting and art markets in the early modern era 1700-1900
Adriana Turpin, Director IESA UK organised in partnership with the Wallace Collection and the Collecting and Display Seminar Group a two day workshop at the Institute of Historical Research and the Wallace Collection .
With the developing interest in the history of collecting, this two-day workshop aimed at bringing out new research in the area of collecting and art markets in the early modern era 1700-1900. The focus of this workshop has been on the collector and his circles, whether friends, advisors or dealers, so as to give further understanding to the context in which individual collectors acquired and displayed their collections. Recent research on art markets and on individual collectors has revealed the fascinating and complex background of individual collectors. Further discussions of the international connections between artists, dealers and collectors have shown how these networks stretch across disciplines and countries.
