Christie's Appoints Laura Paulson as Deputy Chairman

NEW YORK.-Christie’s, the world’s leading art business, announced today the appointment of Laura Paulson as Deputy Chairman, Christie’s Americas. Ms. Paulson will continue in her current role as Senior Vice President and International Director, Postwar and Contemporary Art, Christie’s International.

“I am delighted to announce the appointment of Laura Paulson as Deputy Chairman, Christie's Americas in recognition of her great success as a renowned specialist and business-getter in the field and in recognition of her tenure with the Company,” said Marc Porter, President, Christie’s Americas.

Ms. Paulson joined Christie’s in 1989 as Specialist in Post War and Contemporary Art and was promoted to Vice President in 1993 and to Senior Vice President a few years later. During that time she was instrumental in attracting major consignments including the single owner sale from the Collection of Henry Geldzahler, the Estate of Lawrence Alloway, the Collection of Victor and Sally Ganz and Contemporary Art from the Herbig Collection. She left Christie’s for four years and returned in 2004 as International Director, Postwar and Contemporary Art, working alongside department co-heads Brett Gorvy and Amy Cappellazzo, and other senior colleagues worldwide. Ms. Paulson has been responsible for numerous important pieces of business including the $44.5 million sale of the American Collection Sold to Benefit the Jewish Communal Fund, The Collection of Lee V. Eastman, an Important Private Collection that included Andy Warhol’s Mustard Race Riott, 1963, as well as the Edward R. Broida Collection that totaled $54 million.

As Deputy Chairman, Ms. Paulson will continue to provide top level business and specialist support to the Specialist departments in New York and abroad.
