Sotheby's to create videos about the world's leading museums and collections
by ANNY SHAW | The Art Newspaper
Sotheby’s is collaborating with major institutions including the Metropolitan Museum in New York and London’s Tate Modern to host their videos on its website. The auction house is also creating its own films about museums, starting with a 13-part series about Chatsworth House and the Duke Of Devonshire’s collection.
Smaller institutions and privately run museums will also feature on Sotheby’s Museum Network, which launches online on 29 August.
The announcement comes after the Metropolitan Museum revealed record attendance figures, in which it said that the museum had attracted 6.7 million visitors in the past fiscal year.
