Tuesday, December 3, 2019 6:30 PM

Ann-Marie Richard 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. The institute has now evolved to be at the vanguard of art professional business education and object based learning.  To register, please click here.
