Overview

Barely a day goes by without the global art market making headlines. At a time when auctions and galleries have never been more electric, this eight-session course explores the background to this extraordinary state of affairs, as well as providing some clues as to where things might be heading. From the emergence of Sotheby’s and Christie’s in eighteenth century London to the explosion of new economies in the Middle East and China, and from early patrons like the Medici to contemporary taste-makers like Charles Saatchi, faculty-led lectures will consider the forces, events and personalities that have made the international art market what it is today.

Suitable for finance professionals, art world professionals, investors and collectors, as well as those looking to deepen their understanding of the history and performance of the international art market.

This course includes:

  • Certificate of participation on completion of the course;
  • Eight-week term, with a half-term break;
  • Lecture with time for questions and discussion each week;
  • Occasional panel discussions with art market leaders;
  • Wine receptions with faculty and fellow participants;
  • Networking opportunities with faculty and fellow participants;
  • Learning in the Institute's historic Georgian townhouse campus at the heart of Bloomsbury.
