Chris grew up in the antique business, cutting his teeth by knocking around British salerooms with his father, a Christie’s paintings specialist. After studying History of Art at University, he followed in his father’s footsteps and joined Christie’s, spending the majority of his career in their London saleroom.
As a natural born treasure hunter, Chris is happiest digging through dusty attics, hunting for hidden gems. Wondering what to buy an antique nut for Christmas? For Chris, anything old and beautiful that comes with a great story - or anything painted by the celebrated French artist, Gaston La Touche.
