Art Dealers, America and the International Art Market, 1880-1930
The Getty Research Institute presents a symposium on the role of international art dealers in creating the collections, museums, and intellectual culture of the American art world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Bringing together rich archival resources from the Getty Research Institute and peer institutions, and capitalizing on new methodologies made possible by the extraordinary quantity of information contained in the documentary record, this symposium illuminates the ways in which art dealers contributed to making America a prominent arena in the international art market, and their role in creating the major private collections that became the foundation of great American museums.

PROTAGONISTI, ARCHIVI, FOTOGRAFIE
Florence, Bologna, November 14 – 15, 2017
Study days promoted by Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz – Max-Planck-Institut and Federico Zeri Foundation.
The two study days, which will take place in Florence and Bologna respectively, aim to analyze the dynamics of the art market in Italy at the beginning of the twentieth century, intersecting the methods of the history of art, economic history and sociology.
In this fruitful research context, two particular aspects will be studied: the relationship between photographic practices and antique practices, the subject of the first day hosted by the Fototeca del Kunsthistorisches Institut, and the antiquarian world in the Savoy Rome, which will be studied on the second day at the Federico Zeri Foundation.

Building upon a preliminary socioeconomic analysis of the art dealers in Paris between 1815 and 1955 (ARTL@S Bulletin 2, n°2), this paper presents the findings of a spatial study of the Parisian art market in this period. Using serial geographical data drawn from a single, consistent source – the Bottin du commerce – we mapped the spatial evolution of art dealers over 140 years, using a geocoding system with composite locators. The article explores the different spatial dynamics of this market, and seeks to shed light on the links between the evolution of the Parisian economy as a whole and the individual trajectories of its art dealers.

GeoMAP stands for Geographie du marché de l’art parisien and it maps all the “marchands de tableaux” (art dealers) that were mentioned in the Bottin du commerce, in Paris, from 1815 through 1955. The articles giving further details can be found here, for the statistic and quantitative approach, and here, for the mapping of the Parisian art dealers. GeoMAP project is an open access database. Researchers can look up and visualize art dealers in Paris by using the timeline or navigate the map : the GeoMAP project is thus both a repository of the Parisian dealers, and a tool of visualization.
GeoMAP was developed by Julien Cavero, who is cartographer at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (Labex TranferS) and the data were collected by Félicie de Maupeou and Léa Saint-Raymond.
The website will be available in English soon.
