AC Executive Director Tess Davis Pens Chapter for New Book on Provenance Research

December 3, 2020

Lund Humphries launched “Provenance Research Today: Principles, Practice, Problems” on December 3 during the International Catalogue Raisonné Association’s 2nd Annual Conference, held online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The art-centric publisher advertises this long-awaited volume, edited by New Zealand-based District Court Judge Arthur Tompkins, as “covering key aspects of provenance research for the international art market,” including challenges, best practices, controversial topics, and the trade in illicit antiquities.

Chapters were penned by a variety of different subject experts—including our very own executive director, Tess Davis, who examined in her chapter how curators, buyers, and collectors can ensure that antiquities enter the market both legally and ethically, using case studies in Asian art.
