Let's continue the exploration and discussion of what to look for from an experienced collector who has spent decades discovering hidden treasures in Parisian antique markets. The teacher will use pieces from his own collection as a starting point for discussing composition, color and other elements reflective of works by artists working the style of major painters. Learn how to use these insights to differentiate and value various pieces among the discarded and neglected. See how you can acquire a collection of beautiful art (and maybe even a lost master) without spending a fortune. The class will be held in the teacher's West Chester gallery, Lebarger on S. Church Street which is filled with his impressive art collection.
