The course will be offered on Thursday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., beginning September 20 through October 11. Classes will take place at Christie’s Education, 11 West 42nd Street. There will be a sale walkthrough with a Christie’s specialist on Sunday, October 14 at 12:00 pm.

The lectures will be given by top scholars in the academic, museum and auction fields. Each session will address another facet of photography, including cultural history, technical processes, conservation and the market. Whether you are just entering the field, or want a comprehensive review, the course will offer something for everyone.
