The Art Market : how does it work? Clive Stewart-Lockhart Monday 19 March 2018

After 40 years in the art market, as an auctioneer, dealer as well as a member of the Antiques Roadshow team for 22 years, Clive discusses how this dynamic industry has developed over the years.  Why have collecting tastes changed so dramatically?  How does the market work and who are the players today?  The effects of the Internet, legislation, pressure groups, antiques fairs, television programmes and changing tastes are all discussed.  The value of your antiques is ever moving, and getting it right is harder than ever.



Clive Stewart-Lockhart studied on the Sotherby’s Works of Art course and has now been working in the fine art world for 40 years. Managing Director of Woolley and Wallis, the UK’s leading regional auctioneers, in Salisbury, and has been a specialist on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow for over 20 years.
