Bloomsbury Visual Arts

Launch Event at Sotheby’s Institute of Art

Watch the launch event for Bloomsbury Art Markets, presented by Bloomsbury Digital Resources, at the Sotheby's Institute of Art in Bedford Square, London.

A landmark digital reference work exclusive to Bloomsbury Digital Resources, Bloomsbury Art Markets is a comprehensive guide to art galleries, auction houses, art fairs, and agents from multiple national and historical contexts. The first scholarly guide of its kind online, it is specially designed to serve the expanding research areas of art market studies, art historiography and provenance research.

The launch event consists of a panel discussion on 'Tools for Researching the Art Market' followed by an audience Q&A. The discussion is led by the Editor-in-Chief of Bloomsbury Art Markets, Johannes Nathan, and moderated by the Director of Sotheby's Institute, Jonathan Woolfson.

They are joined by field-leading experts Dr Kathryn Brown (Senior Lecturer in Art History and Visual Culture at Loughborough University) and Professor Frances Fowle (Chair of Nineteenth-Century Art, University of Edinburgh and Senior Curator at National Galleries of Scotland; Chair of the British Association for Art History) in celebration of the first scholarly guide of its kind online to explore the art trade.
