Lecture: The Art Market in the 20th and 21st Centuries (Lisbon, 19-20 Oct, 17)

The Art Market in the 20th and 21st Centuries: Mapping a still unwritten history

Lecture by TIAMSA Co-Chair Johannes Nathan at the Palácio do Correio Velho, Lisbon, Friday, 20 October, 6pm

Beginning with a brief overview of the speaker’s family history, this lecture will outline the development of the art market in the 20th century and the changing role of different business models. In view of the recent attention to provenance research, it will then turn to the growing importance of the study of art market history. The lecture will conclude by pointing to the challenges that still face students of this subject – and how they might be overcome.

The lecture will be preceded by a workshop on „The Art Market Dictionary – The Challenge of Raw Data“ for the students of Mercados da Arte Contemporânea no Mundo Global at the Instituto de História da Arte, Universidade Nova de Lisboa on 19 October 2017, 6pm to 9pm

These are the kick-off events of the “Art Market and Collecting in the European Southern Countries and Brazil”, a new TIAMSA sub-committee, whose first meeting will take place on 19 October in Lisbon.

New Resources Online: Metropolitan Museum of Art Archives

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Archives announces the availability for research of the Margaretta M. Salinger records and the Textile Study Room records.

Margaretta M. Salinger records

Margaretta M. Salinger had a long and distinguished career at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 1930 she joined the Met’s Department of Paintings as Special Cataloguer, going on to become a Research Fellow, Senior Researcher and Associate Curator. In 1970 Salinger was named Curator in the European Paintings department, and upon her retirement in 1972 she was named Curator Emeritus. In addition to her curatorial work, Salinger was active on various Museum committees related to publications, most notably the Editorial Advisory Committee, which is the focus of the bulk of these records. Included are proposals for publications, notes from meetings, budget documents, memoranda and correspondence, mostly dating from the 1940s-1960s. There are several files as well from other committees on which Salinger served, mostly related to Museum publication projects.

Textile Study Room records

The Textile Study Room of The Metropolitan Museum of Art opened in 1908. From then until the mid-1990s, when its activities were integrated into those of the Antonio Ratti Textile Center, the Textile Study Room was consulted by students, designers, and others seeking knowledge or inspiration from historical and contemporary examples of fabrics. In its early years, research supported by the Textile Study Room focused on European textiles and laces, as well as Japanese and Chinese textiles. The Textile Study Room frequently hosted lectures about its holdings by curators and specialists in the field. It also acquired photographs of fabrics and textiles from Central and South America, Asia, and India. The records include correspondence, invoices, fabric samples, photographs and other items that document the work of curators and other staff of this department over several decades. Finding aid:
