CONF: Art Dealers, America and the International Art Market, 1880-1930 (Los Angeles, Jan 18-19, 2018)

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 century. 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.

Free tickets available beginning November 29, 2017 at www.getty.edu/visit/cal/talks.html
Separate reservation is required for each day of the symposium Continue reading “CONF: Art Dealers, America and the International Art Market, 1880-1930 (Los Angeles, Jan 18-19, 2018)”
