Undressing Antiques Mark Hill Tuesday 10 April 2018

Mark Hill is an antiques and C20th  design specialist, author, publisher, lecturer, dealer and TV presenter. After studying History of Art and Architecture he became specialist in the collectors departments of Bonhams and Sotheby's London.

He has published over 10 books and is co-author of 'Miller's Collectable Price Guides'. He is probably best known from his appearances in BBC Antiques Roadshow since 2007. He has lectured at prestigious locations across the world including the V&A and the Royal Ontario Musuem, Toronto. He is a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Arts Scholars and Freeman of the City of London.

The lecture is a persuasive introduction to buying antiques, vintage and modern design and integrating and using them in today's homes. The state of the antiques market and the different meaning of the word value are considered, and a view is taken on what current and future generations of collectors are buying, why they are buying it and how they are displaying it.
