About the work

Based on letters and detailed archival research Art Markets, Agents and Collectors brings together a wide variety of case studies, with reference to the history of the art market and the role of the collector within it. Using diaries, account books and other archival sources, the chapters in this volume show how agents set up networks and acquired works of art, often developing the taste and knowledge of the collectors for whom they were working. 

Written by a leading expert in the field, each chronological period is introduced by a contextual essay. This book is accessible yet broad introduction to the intricate workings of the art market.
