The global confluence of Asian and Western artistic practices and display has propelled burgeoning cross-culture, cross-category collecting, including increasing demand for Western art in Asia, presenting new art appreciation and investment opportunities. At the forefront of this trend, Christie’s Education Asia is delighted to present Fundamentals of Collecting: Western Art, an educational opportunity designed to guide collectors and art enthusiasts based in Asia to impactful collecting across boundaries.
This timely programme comprises evening lectures and discussions led by scholars and market experts, curated to create an actionable collecting framework encompassing both art history and the latest market trends. Participants will explore major collecting categories of Western art, from European old masters to 20th and 21st Century icons, together with practical and commercial considerations key to collecting in today’s global art ecosystem. Participants will also be guided by Christie’s specialists to closely examine the highlights of Western art on view during Christie’s Spring auction.
