Not by the Book: Inge Reist

January 29, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Bring your lunch and enjoy a talk by Inge Reist, Director of the Center for the History of Collecting, The Frick Collection and Frick Art Reference Library.

Art collecting requires the consideration of a vast array of archival, bibliographic, and photographic materials to evaluate the various contexts—cultural, socioeconomic, and political—in which art has been bought and sold, coveted or denounced. In this illustrated lecture, Inge Reist will guide us through the maze of information that researchers face when they study the formation of great art collections.

To RSVP, please call (843) 723-9912 or email rsvp@charlestonlibrarysociety.org.
