17.00 (BST) / 12.00 (EDT)

Will Elliott (Elliott Fine Art), Dominic Sanchez-Cabello (Dominic Fine Art), Alesa Boyle (Stephen Ongpin Fine Art) and Ellie Smith (Philip Mould & Company) share some of their new discoveries and discuss how they identify overlooked artists. 

Many of the discoveries are works by women artists who got 'lost' in time and other forgotten masters - it is in part a creative response to the scarcity of conventional 'sleepers' in the art market, as well as an acceptance that in a diminishing market, where museums are constantly expanding their collection there is a need for dealers to expand their research and promote long forgotten artists.

Free talk.

Will Elliott, Elliott Fine Art

After working at Sotheby's and Colnaghi as director, Will Elliott set up Elliott Fine Art at the beginning of 2020, focusing on European paintings and drawings from the 19th and early 20th centuries, with the aim of both rediscovering forgotten artists and recontextualising major names.

Dominic Sanchez-Cabello, Dominic Fine Art

Dominic Fine Art, established in Plymouth in 2022, seeks to reframe the contributions of forgotten masters. But before dealing in pictures, Dominic Sanchez-Cabello worked at the lower end of the antiques trade, gaining an insight into how the works of lesser-known talents can languish in the dusty, ill-lit corners of provincial salerooms.

Alesa Boyle, Stephen Ongpin Fine Art

Alesa Boyle is the Head of Research and Gallery Manager at Stephen Ongpin Fine Art. She received her first master's degree in Fine and Decorative Art from Sotheby's Institute of Art in London, and went on to complete a second master's degree in the Art Market at Kingston University before joining the gallery. During her five years at Stephen Ongpin Fine Art Alesa has assisted in the research of over fifteen scholarly catalogues, reattributed various works and connected a number of drawings with previously unrelated paintings and prints. 

Ellie Smith, Philip Mould & Company

Ellie Smith is researcher at the Philip Mould Gallery in London where she maintains a particular interest in nineteenth and twentieth-century women artists. She recently published the first biography of the artist Sarah Biffin and co-curated the exhibition Without Hands The Art of Sarah Biffin.
