insight into the printmaking process and tips for collectors
As we quickly approach our Fine Print and Photography Auction on March 11th, we are pleased to announce that Waddington’s will host a special guest lecture by print connoisseur Glen Warner on Sunday March 9 at 1 pm.
Glen Warner is the author of the best selling book Building a Print Collection: A Guide to Buying Original Prints and Photographs. He is also the author of numerous articles on collecting contemporary original prints and fine art photography that have been published in magazines and newspapers such as Canadian Art, Maclean’s, Toronto Life, Art Business News and The Financial Post. Glen lives in Toronto and is an avid collector of contemporary prints and vintage photographs.
Whether you’re a seasoned collector or first time buyer, this lecture will provide great insight into the printmaking process and offer valuable collecting tips. Referencing lots in our sale, Mr. Warner will answer questions like: what is an “original print” and why is it a desirable collectible? What are the types of prints and how are they made? How to spot editions made “after” another artist’s work and how to research a print’s history and authenticity.
We look forward to seeing you at our preview on Saturday March 8 and Sunday March 9 from 11 – 5 pm at 275 King Street East, Toronto. You won’t want to miss Mr. Warner’s fascinating discussion along with a fantastic viewing of fine prints and photography.
This season’s Fine Print and Photography auction will feature a wide range of prints showcasing various art movements and periods from the historic to the contemporary.
