Colloque : « The Art Market, Collectors and Agents : Then and Now » (Paris, 20-21 octobre 2016)

collectors-and-agentsThe focus of the conference is to explore the changing and complex nature of the role of agent in the art market during the Modern Period. Papers will explore shifts in the dynamics of the market, the changing taste of collectors and the importance of writers, critics, museum curators and dealers in influencing these changes. The papers demonstrate how examining the role of agents through their correspondence with clients, day books or private records, bring new insights into the workings of the art world through the detailed evidence of how transactions were negotiated.
