Fireman's Fund Lecture: Mid-Century Modernism with Mark McDonald and James Zemaitis
Join the Appraisers Association of America at the National Arts Club in New York City on Monday, October 7th for the first lecture of the 2013-2014 Fireman’s Fund Lecture Series. Mark McDonald and James Zemaitis will kick off the series with “Mid-Century Modernism.” During their presentation, Mark and James will discuss how valuable or mis-leading auction records can be for evaluating true market value and present other methods for establishing current values of mid-20th century modern design objects, jewelry and furniture. They will also address the meteoric rise in the value of and increasingly widespread interest in Mid-Century modernism since the 1980s. Other topics include: deciphering between the manufactured versus hand-crafted production of objects (and how this alters values), changes over time in what are considered the best and most reliable sources for discerning value, and how the Internet and auction houses’ involvement in the market has affected appraising Mid-Century modern design today.
Kindly RSVP in advance. No payments will be accepted at the door; all reservations must be made prior to the lecture
