Interview with Lisa Hunter


(interview mp3 archive)

My next guest on the podcast is Lisa Hunter, who has written a very basic and thorough book on how to collect called The Intrepid Art Collector. She covers prints, photography, Native American and 19th and 20th century art and a heck of a lot more – the book runs the gamut. She also covers relationships, which is just important – what to look for in a dealer or at an auction house.

Her blog is even more extensive, as it includes all that input and questions from readers. It's a forum on art and the art market, two different things.... issues include conservation, presentation, art fairs, the market and even museum storage.

I especially enjoyed this repartee around art critics, but there are many fine posts. She has a great post on collecting art made by women. She says go for it and toute suite. Actually, her post today is damn good too.
