On the 23rd January 2020, Olympia Auctions will be hosting a fun and informative seminar entitled 'Connoisseurship' exploring how to tell who painted a picture, when, and how. Also, the art of ‘discernment’; what is a ‘good eye’, is it inborn or can it be acquired? Fakes, and the role of science and technology in the analysis of works of art will also be examined. It is run by former Senior Director of Old Master department at Sotheby's, Richard Charlton-Jones.
For over 25 years Richard has also taught at Sotheby's Institute and in 2018 gave a sold out fundraising lecture ‘Images of Childhood 1550-1800’ at Olympia Auctions. He has also given a lecture on ‘Fakes! How, When and Why?’ at the Royal Academy in October 2019.
This seminar will be raising awareness for the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust.
Doors open at 6.30pm on Thursday 23rd January 2020 at Olympia Auctions, 25 Blythe Road, London W14 0PD.
The Talk will start at 7pm.
Tickets are free, with donations to the charity much appreciated. There will be a short talk about the work of CWMT after the seminar.
