Lund Humphries is delighted to be celebrating Provenance Research Day 2021 on 14th April with a series of social media posts and blog content considering the social, historical and cultural importance of Provenance.
Follow along with the hashtag #PRD2021 via our Twitter thread.
Our recently published book, Provenance Research Today, edited by Judge Arthur Tompkins and published in association with IFAR covers key aspects of provenance research for the international art market, and explores a range of themes including challenges and best practice to considerations specific to Nazi looted art and the trade in illicit antiquities.
There are chapters on:
• The History, Purposes and Challenges of Provenance Research
• Best Practice in Provenance Research
• Provenance Research, Museums and the Art Market
• Nazi-Era Provenance Research
• Provenance Research and the Illicit Antiquities Trade
We are also pleased to announce the forthcoming publication - Restitution: The Return of Cultural Artefacts - a comprehensive, up-to-date, balanced and accessible overview of the complex issues surrounding the restitution of cultural property, and part of our new Hot Topics in the Art World series.
