July 19, 2012One of our most popular posts of recent weeks was the story about appraiser Alex J. Rosenberg’s informal presentation, late last month, on art appraisal in Cuba. We’ve now had a chance to look over the book ourselves, and find it to be a thoughtful, comprehensive overview of the field and the unique challenges facing art appraisal in Cuba.
With that in mind, we thought Cuban Art News readers would enjoy a brief excerpt from the book, An Approach to Advanced Problems in Appraising Art with a special focus on Cuba. Here, Alex makes his case for art appraisal in Cuba as an independent professional field, separate from government sponsorship or support.
