A Risky Business – Marketing Modern Art in Early 20th Century London

The Arts Society Leicester present A Risky Business – Marketing Modern Art in Early 20th Century London

Speaker – Evelyn Silber

Presenting and selling modern art posed great challenges during the early part of the twentieth century. It was a risky business, especially to the conservative British market. Only a handful of bold London dealers in the pre-1945 period persisted. This talk will explore the audacious ventures, triumphs, crises and controversies faced.
