Art repatriation is just one example of the key art world issues you can learn about at Sotheby’s Institute. In this exclusive video, Dr Iain Robertson, Head of Art Business at Sotheby’s Institute in London, looks at the cases of the so-called Elgin Marbles and the 1860 looting of Beijing’s Old Summer Palace, charting the journey of two bronze animal heads which, in 2009, made it back to their country of origin. Students at Sotheby’s Institute of Art can expect a rigorous academic curriculum that includes privileged access to major art world players, global travel opportunities, and career networking and preparation. In addition to the foundational knowledge of the MA core curricula, Sotheby’s Institute students are also given an in-depth introduction to specialized themes and topics that are central to the history and ongoing development of the international art world.
