On Wednesday, October 20th, at 7PM EDT, the Association of Historians of Nineteenth Century Art (AHNCA) and the Dahesh Museum of Art will co-host their October Virtual Salon on The Art Market in the Nineteenth Century. Three specialists in this area will discuss this increasingly important area of nineteenth-century studies: Veronique Chagnon-Burke, Anne Helmreich, and Simon Kelly.
The discussion will be moderated by Véronique Chagnon-Burke, co-founder of WADDA (Women Art Dealers Digital Archives), a digital platform that maps the role women art dealers played in the institutionalization of modern and contemporary art. She is founding member of the New York chapter of The International Art Market Studies Association (TIAMSA) and a section editor for the forthcoming Art Market Dictionary to be published by De Gruyter (Berlin) in 2021. She is also a member of the steering committee of the Society for the History of Collecting, and on the editorial advisory board of the Bloomsbury Press series Contextualizing Art Markets.
Anne Helmreich is Associate Director, Getty Foundation. Her current research focuses on the history of the art market and the productive intersection of the digital humanities and art history. She recently co-authored “Digital Methods and the Study of the Art Market,” for The Routledge Companion to Digital Humanities and Art History (ed. Kathryn Brown, Routledge, 2020) with Pamela Fletcher, and “Purpose-built: Duveen and the Commercial Art gallery,” Nineteenth-Century Art Worldwide (Summer 2021) with Edward Sterrett and Sandra van Ginhoven.
Simon Kelly is Curator and Head of Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Saint Louis Art Museum. He has written extensively on Barbizon and Impressionist painting, focusing on the relationship between artists and the art market, as well as related histories of patronage and collecting. His new book, Théodore Rousseau and the Rise of the Modern Art Market: An Avant-Garde Landscape Painter in 19th-Century France, was published in July 2021.
