Antiquities and the Art Market: Who, What and Why?

Who collects ancient art, what do they collect and why do they collect it? Francesca Hickin explores the market for ancient art and discusses the issue of provenance: the ‘old ways’ of the mart market, the new legislation and current market practices in response to heightened awareness of the issue of looting in source countries and how collectors have reacted to changes in attitudes to the morals of collecting ancient art.
