Franklin Boyd integrates multiple perspectives on the art market: attorney, art finance professor, collector, board member and advisor. As the founder of Xipsy, an art database that facilitates contractual resale rights for artists and galleries, she is interested in trying new approaches to old problems and looking at how market players can work collaboratively rather than in opposition.
