Value can be broken down into five main areas; market, historical, cultural, contextual and sentimental value. All have relevant and contrasting factors that influence the importance and purpose of a piece of art. There are numerous individuals within society who determine value, and Leigh will identify and assess their importance and influence. He will analyse the current art market (primary and secondary and discuss how trends are introduced and managed in relation to value.
