Lord Duveen – by Rob Bell

The total value of transactions in the art market worldwide was US $67.8 billion in 2022. For many, this huge and influential global market was born on
English Street in Hull above the Duveens’ bric-a-brac store.

Joseph Duveen (1869-1939), the man who would go on tocompletely change America’s relationship with art was born, one of 12, above his parents’ antique shop in 1869.

For decades, the art market in Europe and the Americas danced to a Duveen tune. This talk, by writer Rob Bell, will explore the journey from English Street to Fifth Avenue of a man who created the art market that functions down to now.
