On Tuesday, December 3rd at 6.30pm, Ann-Marie Richard, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Director, MA Fine and Decorative Art and Design, New York, will discuss how the intersection of connoisseurship, conservation and provenance impacts the value of collections within the categories of fine art, decorative arts and design. Ms. Richard will also briefly describe the history of the Institute of Art program and what her role entails. The institute began as a small connoisseurship program at Sotheby’s in 1969, borne out of necessity to train auction house specialists.
