Workshop on Provenance Research
The Center for Art Law is proud to present a workshop on Provenance Research this Spring Semester led by Owner & Consultant of Proper Provenance, LLC, Aubrey Catrone. Join us as we discuss how to read and interpret provenance for works of art and sculptures, and discuss the questions we all have been dying to know about. What’s the difference between an appraisal report and provenance? What’s the nuance behind due diligence work for appraisers? And most importantly, what do you need to know to create provenance from the ground up. With the use of case studies and professional expertise, we hope to learn alongside each of you!
