Bonhams appoint Dr. Jacqueline Nowikovsky as its representative in Austria
Her working career started at the gallery Jan Krugier Cie where she gained insight into the world of Fine Arts.
LONDON.- Bonhams, the international fine art auction house, has appointed Dr Jacqueline Nowikovsky as the company’s representative in Vienna, Austria.

Speaking German, French and English she was educated at Lycée Français de Vienne followed by Studies of Philosophy at the University of Vienna.

Her working career started at the gallery Jan Krugier Cie where she gained insight into the world of Fine Arts.

Dr Nowikovsky comments: “Jan Krugier was not only one of the big art dealers of the 20th century, but together with his wife Marie-Anne Poniatowski also built one of the most marvellous private collections with masterpieces ranging from Raffael to Tintoretto, from Rembrandt to Goya, from Cézanne to Giacometti, from Rothko and Bacon, and not to forget the eminent role of Picasso’s work. By putting his elegant intuition on display with every arrangement and acquisition, he taught more about the exigencies of quality-standards than years of academic studies.”

In her dissertation she analyzed how social values are expressed in economic trading systems and how valuations of the art-market varied throughout recent history. This research was then followed by her book ³The Value of Art² (³Der Wert der Kunst²), published in 2011 by the Czernin Verlag, in which she offers insights to the art-market´s structure and its pricing methods.

In Vienna she organised exhibitions for contemporary artists and introduced them to young collectors, as well as holding lectures about art investments. When Die Presse, one of Austria’s leading daily newspapers, invited her to share her views on important artists and major exhibitions in her own Art-Blog she had an opportunity to express her passion for art while making additional background information available to interested readers.

At the same time she started working for a private equity developer in Eastern Europe, with a focus on properties under national heritage protection, searching for contemporary solutions adaptable to architectural challenges.

Dr Nowikovsky says: “Joining Bonhams offers me the wonderful privilege of working with extraordinary collectibles and of discovering the precious stories behind valuable objects, to which I am greatly looking forward.”

Matthew Girling, Bonhams CEO Europe, says: ”We are delighted to make this appointment. Without doubt Dr Nowikovsky will add greatly to our expertise and her contacts and understanding of the art world will prove invaluable to our clients in Austria.”
