Art History News
Bendor Grosvenor is somewhat unique among his colleagues in that he is as much an art historian as he is a commerical dealer. He asked us to produce a bespoke platform for his Art History News blog.
Running on our InSitu Content Management System, Art History News combines facility for images, videos and links to third-party content, and the blog has enabled Bendor to build upon his existing profile to great effect. Visitor numbers have grown impressively since its launch in the Spring of 2011.
