Christie’s Object Lessons: Flower Holders of the 18th Century

Posted in Art Market, resources by Editor on April 10, 2013

As we transition from still to moving images, it’s interesting to see people (and institutions) exploring possibilities — in this case for educational and marketing purposes. Note the inclusion of music behind the narration of Jody Wilkie, a ceramics specialist at Christie’s and a regular appraiser on Antiques Roadshow. Does the music enhance or detract? I can report, from first-hand experience, that art historians working on similar projects are debating precisely this question. Do your lectures and articles come with soundtracks — either real or imagined? -CH
