The Art Market and the Museum: How Collectors and Dealers Help Shape World Class Art Museum Collections
Members earn 4.5 C.E. credits for this program
Join us for “The Art Market and the Museum: How Collectors and Dealers Help Shape World Class Art Museum Collections,” which will focus on the interrelated roles of collectors, dealers, and curators in building art museum collections. Organized and moderated by Patricia Graham, PhD, AAA, the program is divided into two parts, with morning sessions held in the galleries of the Saint Louis Art Museum and afternoon presentations at a classroom in the art history building on the Washington University campus. This connoisseurship study day takes place the day before the Midwest Art History Society’s Annual Conference (April 3-5 at the Saint Louis Art Museum), and has been planned so that participants can attend both programs.

Soodie Beasley, AAA, is a certified member of the Appraisers Association and an art history lecturer at Park University and the Kansas City Art Institute. She will talk about how the collecting of 20th century design has changed, especially in the past 10-15 years, because of the advent of social media and new online selling venues.
Charles Lowenhaupt, Chairman, President and Chief Executive officer at Lowenhaupt Global Advisors and attorney with Lowenhaupt & Chasnoff LLC is a wealth manager based in St. Louis. He will talk about the assembling of collections with an eye towards eventual museum donation. Several years ago, he donated a huge collection of Japanese prints and ephemera related to the Sino-Japanese and Russo-Japanese Wars to the Saint Louis Art Museum.
Valerie Rudy-Valli, Individual Gifts Officer in the Development Department of the Saint Louis Art Museum, worked formerly as a curatorial assistant in the Registrar’s office, where she helped to catalogue the Loewenhaupt gift that Pat Graham appraised.
