This course examines the intersections of art and the market, how art becomes an investment, how auction houses function, and the criminal element that tries to cash in through art theft and forgery. We will examine a number of case studies to understand the world of art and business, from Sotheby’s to museum intrigues to critical reviews to the elite world of experts, art collecting, and donor gifts.
Please note: Course outlines of record posted may vary from the section syllabus distributed by each instructor (e.g. textbooks, assignments, timing of midterms).
