The Arts Society Helmsley: Curves, Colours & Cool - Introducing Mid-Century Modern

Pieces made during the 1970’s can now fetch many times more than a piece made in the 1770’s. Why has the teak sideboard you threw out become so desirable? Who is this Eames guy? Or Timo Sarpaneva? Who’s buying what and what are they doing with it? This practical and inspirational lecture looks at furniture, ceramics, glass, lighting and metalware, identifies key designs and designers and examines the revolutionary design movements they began.

Mark Hill studied History of Art and Architecture before joining Bonhams as a porter and junior cataloguer and moving to Sotheby’s where he was a Specialist in the Collector’s Department. He was a co-author with Judith Miller of the Collectables Price Guide from 2002-17 and a Miscellaneous expert on the Antiques Roadshow since 2007.
