What is the Art Market Academy?

The Art Market Academy offers a unique environment where students can explore the topic of Art Provenance Research from a multitude of angles.

Our carefully curated courses cater to individuals whose knowledge in the field ranges from non-existent to professional.

Our curriculum, which is updated regularly, is taught by experts in the field, who will focus on various topics such as Introduction to Provenance Research, Holocaust and Historical Provenance Research, Collections Management and Research Methodologies.

Enrolment is necessary for all courses as they only run during specific dates throughout the year and the places in each course are capped. This is to allow for a healthy and direct interaction between the students themselves and the course instructors.

Coaching sessions are part of every course, sometimes as a group and sometimes on a one-to-one basis.

There is no straightforward and easy way to learn how to conduct provenance research and due diligence for works of art, hence why it is not possible to offer this knowledge in a single course.

Based on the artwork, the period or the historical conflict, one needs a very specific set of skills to successfully plan and complete their research.

The Art Market Academy hopes to provide a platform whereby combining intro courses with courses on more specific topics, students can come out with a helpful toolkit and enhanced knowledge base.

The first courses for the 2023 calendar year can be found on the "All Courses" section. We regularly organise bespoke trainings and workshops for private individuals or working groups, so please do get in touch directly at [email protected] if you require further assistance.

Course Information

All announced courses are now available online and accessible from anywhere. You can enrol in any course, complete it at your own pace and reach out to the course instructor any time you have questions or something you'd like to discuss.

The curriculum will expand as new courses are added regularly, on topics such as collections management, history of collecting, the antiquities market and Holocaust research from the point of view of claimants, amongst others. Some courses, in particular introductory ones, will run several times within the calendar year. The frequency of other courses will depend on instructor availability.

There are currently two courses online:

Based on your interest or level of expertise, you can choose to enrol in either or both courses simultaneously by opting to purchase them as a bundle: The New Provenance Researcher Kit.

Once you have enrolled in the course, you will get a confirmation email. All course materials are uploaded and instantly available upon registration.
