Sotheby’s, 1334 York Avenue at East 71st Street (Map)

Over the past 30 years, several noted art historians have deftly led the way, moving between the museum and commercial worlds, once considered polar opposites. Indeed, the skill sets required to be successful as an art museum curator and an auction house specialist have become increasingly mutually beneficial. This panel will examine the language both sides use to describe a work of art, and the tactics they employ to promote its significance. Panelists will include Richard Brettell, the Margaret McDermott Distinguished Chair of Art and Aesthetics at the University of Texas at Dallas; Charlotte Eyerman, the American Director of FRAME; and two senior Sotheby’s specialists from the old master paintings and contemporary art departments. The panel will be moderated by Jason Herrick, Museum Services, Sotheby’s.
