Monday 1 April
Philip Hook is Senior Director of Sotheby’s Impressionist and Modern Art Department and in a career of more than forty years in the art world has also been a Director of Christie’s, and appeared regularly on BBC TV’s Antiques Roadshow from 1978 to 2003. In addition he is a successful author: he has written five novels and three works of Art History, the most recent of which is ‘Rogues’ Gallery, A History of Art and its Dealers’.
His talk, ‘Ten Questions You Need to Answer to Establish the Value of a Painting’, will be a light-hearted investigation of the wonders and absurdities of the Twenty-First Century art market.
This talk is free and open to the public but seating is limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
