and learn something interesting at an easy pace
#summer2018 #sun #vacation #summerlovin #fun #vacationtime #summerbody ... while lying on the beach, sipping a cool cocktail and making a new social media post, why not browse some interesting youtube videos to learn something new, perhaps an inspiration for a conversation at a dinner with friends or just food for thought.
Auction house created a great platform of short educational videos to make us engage with the viewing of their highlight sale pieces (Masterworks by Sotheby's, Spotlight, etc.), learn about art history (Expert Voices, Anatomy of the Art Work, etc) and show the business part of art valuation. My favourite is the playlist The Value of Art where the auction experts focus on each aspect of an art appraisal process and factors: Authenticity, Condition, Rarity, Provenance, Historical Importance, Size, Fashion, Subject Matter, Medium and Quality.
Auction house celebrated 250 years in 2016 and it is always up to date with the most interesting and engaging information, for example, Great Art and Artists with 80 videos in this playlist, Extraordinary Objects, Collectors and Collections, Discovery and more!
