Centre for the Study of the Art and Antiques Market

centre-arts-antiques-marketA new centre has been launched in the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies – the first of its kind, both nationally and internationally, with a specific focus on the study of the history of the trade in both art and antiques.


The Centre is a research hub for interdisciplinary study of the markets for art and antiques – the interdisciplinary nature of the Centre is reflected by a ‘community of interests’, and includes academics (from various schools and faculties at the University of Leeds, as well as other universities and institutions); students (UG, TPG and PGR); archivists, museum professionals and art & antique market professionals.
