Drawing from her recent publication, Duveen Brothers and the Market for Decorative Arts, 1880–1940 (2019), curator and professor Charlotte Vignon discusses the commercial strategies and the relationships with preeminent collectors, including J. P. Morgan, that led this prominent art and antiques dealer to dominate the transatlantic art market from the late 19th to the mid-20th century.
Charlotte Vignon is director of the Heritage and Collections department at Sèvres-Cité de la Céramique and a visiting associate professor at the Bard Graduate Center, New York.
