Frances Fowle and Kim Oosterlinck, TIAMSA’s Finance and Economics officers respectively, would like to share the following announcement with our readers:
“On 26 October Léa Saint Raymond (Université Paris X Nanterre) publicly defended her PhD dedicated to the French art market between 1830 and 1939. We were both delighted to be part of the jury of a PhD of exceptional quality but we especially thought TIAMSA members might be interested to know that Léa Saint Raymond has generously made public part of the database she has created. The database (comprising more than 80,000 sales records) is available on the following website:
The Research Project ‘The Artists and Their Galleries – Reciprocal Receptions between Paris and Berlin, 1900-1950‘, conducted at the Centre Georg Simmel (EHESS.CNRS) in Paris, investigates the historic, social and esthetic role of art galleries in the context of emigration.
The upcoming conference on Monday December 5th (9am-6pm), will explore the art galleries during the German occupation of Paris. It will be held at the Centre allemand d’Histoire de l’art, 45 rue de Petits-Champs, 75002 Paris (Conference language: French). The conference is open to all; those who would like to attend should send an e-mail to Denise Vernerey
