BERLIN.- Bonhams have appointed Honor Westmacott as a Picture Specialist for Modern, Contemporary & Impressionist Art in Germany, from July 1, primarily based in Berlin.

Matthew Girling, Bonhams joint Global CEO, comments: “We are delighted to welcome Honor to our successful team in Germany, one of our most important and fastest growing European markets. She will doubtless provide outstanding expertise in her field and broaden our network.”

Honor, who has both an English and German background, has spent time in both countries and also lived in South America. She speaks fluent English and German.

She has an MA in the History of Art from the Courtauld Institute in London (German Art and Cultural Politics 1870-1945) and a BA History of Art from the University of Leicester. Over the past ten years she has worked in Modern and Contemporary art departments as a senior specialist for several leading German auction houses and international auction houses, and most recently for Auctionata the online auctioneer headquartered in Berlin.

She has also curated a number of exhibitions, published articles on the contemporary art scene in Berlin and held charity-auctions.

Speaking about her new appointment Honor said: “I am thrilled to be joining the Bonhams European team. I have seen Bonhams work and expand and I think it is a wonderful auction house. I look forward to being able to contribute to its success.”

Her working career started in 2003 and in the last ten years she has worked as a Specialist for Modern and Contemporary Art in several leading German auction houses. She has also been the assistant to a publisher and to the director of another auction house.
