Marlborough Fine Art London appoints Alexander Platon to lead on the Secondary Market
Platon was Head of Private Sales at Sotheby’s for the Impressionist and Modern Art Department in Europe for three years.
LONDON.- Marlborough Fine Art London announced the appointment of Alexander Platon as Senior Director – Head of the Secondary Art Market Department and Special Projects.

Platon will bring his proven entrepreneurship and expert knowledge of the secondary market to Marlborough Fine Art London on 1 May 2014. Previously, he was Head of Private Sales at Sotheby’s for the Impressionist and Modern Art Department in Europe for three years. Platon began his career in 1999 at Sotheby’s in the Impressionist and Modern Art Department. There he held key positions in the auction side of the business, before moving to Private Sales, where he dealt with the auction house’s top international clients. In 2006, while at Sotheby’s, Platon started Beyond Limits, an annual selling exhibition of monumental sculpture at Chatsworth House, a pioneering platform for the sale of large outdoor sculptures.

Marlborough Fine Art was founded in London in 1946 by Frank Lloyd and Harry Fischer and went on to become one of the most important galleries in the world. It now has affiliated galleries in New York (3 Locations), Madrid, Monaco and Barcelona (opening on 29 May 2014). In addition to handling important works by the Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and Twentieth Century Masters, Marlborough represents more than fifty modern and contemporary artists internationally, including Frank Auerbach and Paula Rego in London.

Gilbert Lloyd says, ‘In 2010 we completely refurbished our building at 6 Albemarle Street and created a new gallery space for Marlborough Contemporary which opened in October 2012 with an entirely new roster of artists. It therefore seemed logical, in 2014, to bring new impetus to Marlborough Fine Art. I feel very fortunate to have been able to appoint Alexander Platon, whose standing in the international art world reflects his ingenuity and respected career. Our Chairman, the Duke of Beaufort, and the other Directors of Marlborough Fine Art wish Alex every success in his new position.’

Alexander Platon says, ‘I am thrilled to be associated with such an important and historical gallery which has been a force in the art world for seven decades. I cannot wait to start in my new position and contribute to an exciting and successful future for Marlborough Fine Art, based in London and servicing clients internationally.’
