    Q & A on Manuscripts, Miniatures, and Early Printed Books
    Frequently Asked Questions

    Questions we get asked most frequently include the following:

     

    How do rare books, manuscripts, and miniatures fit into the field of art and antique collecting?

     

    What are some of the most common misconceptions about the world of rare books and manuscripts?

     

    How do collectors live with these objects? Given the age of some of these works, how careful do owners have to be in interacting with and maintaining them? 

  • Art as Therapy

    Lesson Learned: What an Artwork Can Teach You
    Art as Therapy

    This year, our exhibition at Frieze Masters has an unusual theme. Inspired by Alain de Botton’s and John Armstrong’s book Art as Therapy, the exhibition will include a thematic display that focuses on the emotions that the artworks convey, or on life lessons to be learned from the works. Loosely based on the ideas from the book and the teachings of The School of Life, some of the thematic cases will show artistic depictions of life skills, such as resilience, curiosity, and virtue.
