Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers (HBArt) present a series of public art programmes in conjunction with the newly established art space Curate on Saturday 17 May 2014.
The seminars, covering the topics of art critique and analysis, art collecting and investing, as well as art conservation and restoration, will be presented as part of an educational initiative to create awareness and educate the public on art knowledge.

The objective of this first installment of art programme for 2014 is to discuss art collecting in Europe and learn about one of the most significant collectors of Western and Asian Art of the 20th century and one of the wealthiest men of his time Calouste Sarkis Gulbenkian. In his own words, Mr. Gulbenkian collected "only the best" and nowadays the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum reflects his eclectic taste for some of the most representative art pieces produced by Western and Asian societies.
