  • Amarillo Museum of Art Amarillo, TX (map)

The 2018 Ladd Lecture

Affluent collectors hire art advisors to prevent mistakes when spending millions. But hobbyists have always developed expertise without paying a tutor, and so can art lovers. In this talk, author and art world veteran Maxwell Anderson will share his techniques when evaluating fine art and design, and how they guided him during an eight-month quest to acquire what would become the world's most expensive work of art, Leonardo da Vinci's Salvator Mundi.
