Author Talk - Philip Hook


November 13, 2017

Program Locations:

/*-->*/ Rogues’ Gallery: The Rise (and Occasional Fall) of Art Dealers, the Hidden Players in the History of Art.

Rogues’ Gallery bursts with unforgettable anecdotes and astute judgments about art and artists, honed by Hook’s more than forty years in the art market—making it essential reading for anyone interested in the hidden history of art.

“A parade of charlatans, crooks, and visionaries in this lively 2,000-year history of art dealing . . . fascinating. . . . Hook writes with honesty and wry detachment. . . . almost no character escapes Hook unmauled.”—Robert Eustace, Saturday Telegraph.

Philip Hook joined Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Department in 1994. He is currently a board member and senior director of Impressionist & Modern art in London, and has over forty years’ expertise as an art dealer and auctioneer.
