LONDON.- Sotheby’s announced that it will reintroduce dedicated sales of 20th Century Design in London this year, with the first auction taking place on 4th November 2015. These sales will focus on international Post-War and Contemporary Design.

Joshua Holdeman, Sotheby’s Worldwide Head of 20th Century Design, commented: “The decision to re-instate 20th Century Design sales in London follows the ever-increasing success of our sales in this category, where Sotheby’s is currently the market leader with global sales in excess of £52 million (€65 million/$78 million) in 2014. We see the exciting growth potential for this category in Europe, with great enthusiasm and interest from collectors of 20th Century Art.”

The London department will be run by a team of experienced specialists led by Cécile Verdier, Head of 20th Century Design, Europe. While Cécile will continue to run Sotheby’s highly successful 20th Century Design sales in Paris, both the London and Paris teams will work under the aegis of New York based Joshua Holdeman. In London, the department will be comprised of the following highly experienced specialists:

Kimberly Miller joins Sotheby’s after spending several years in the 20th Century Design department at Christie’s in New York.

Adam Trunoske has recently worked at a prestigious London gallery where he has developed a deep knowledge of the British market.

Ivan Mietton, who has been successfully running his own 20th Century Design advisory business in Paris and Italy, will be a Consultant for Sotheby’s and will add a wealth of experience of his own, specifically in Contemporary and Italian Design.

The team will also continue to benefit from the expertise of Lydia Cresswell-Jones who will continue in her role as a Consultant. Lydia is a long standing member the International 20th Century Design department based in London.

Sotheby’s has sold many of the most important works of 20th Century design to appear at auction. With sales taking place in New York, Paris and, from November 2015, London, the international department presents a full calendar of events. All key periods are represented, from the Arts and Crafts movement through Art Nouveau and Art Deco, to classic works from the early Modern period and the Post-War years through to Contemporary Design.
