Jackson Pollock Number 17a

Tuesday 23rd April 2019

Lecturer: IAN SWANKIE

This lecture is about the top end of the art market and will examine some beautiful and varied art. These works would not have achieved such high prices if they were no good. We will see works by Picasso, Rembrandt, Klimt, Bacon, and Pollock and look at the buyers and sellers, the backstory of the works and the reasons for changing hands.  Are they really worth hundreds of millions of pounds?
