We are pleased to announce the appointment of two new members of staff to our Paintings department with immediate effect.
Existing Head of Department, Victor Fauvelle, is now joined by Hannah Vernon and Ed Beer, both of whom will be assisting with valuations, cataloguing and the general running of the department. Hannah has come from Christie’s after graduating from Leeds University with a degree in History of Art and has a particular interest in modern art and 20th century paintings. Ed spent nine years working for a London dealer and specialising in Old Masters and 19th century paintings, before leaving to start work for an auction house.
The expansion of the department follows a run of successful sales, including the single-owner sale of the estate of the late Geoffrey Harley, and is hoped to allow the team more chance to grow. Victor Fauvelle has high hopes for his department’s future; “Having two extra valuers on board really frees us up to focus more on the needs of our clients and will hopefully give us greater scope to continue to grow the department. Ed and Hannah come to the department with different interests and enthusiasms but complement each other very well and have already started to settle in to form a great team.”
