Auctioneers Tales and the Anatomy of collecting
BBC Antiques Roadshow specialist Marc Allum takes a fascinating look at the psychology and history of collecting. Marc is a freelance art and antiques journalist, writer and broadcaster based in Wiltshire.He is shortly to begin his 20th year as a specialist on the BBC Antiques Roadshow and has appeared on numerous television and radio programmes. Marc regularly writes for mainstream magazines and is an author, antiques consultant and lecturer. He also runs a fine art valuation and consultancy service. Marc has his own unique style, taking his audience on a riveting journey through his many years in the business. Illustrating his talk with interesting items from his own collection, Marc invites attendees to bring along items of their own to include in the discussion. His interests range from pre-history to modern design and he is a self-confessed collectaholic. He has a passion and reputation for divining the unusual through ‘a desire to connect with history through the interpretation and pursuit of objects and their origins’. Marc has lectured widely for many years to a number of different organisations in both the public and charity sector, including travel companies, The National Trust, The WI and many literary festivals including Cheltenham, Bath, Wells and Petworth.
