Richard heads-up valuations and research of all early prints, drawings and maps, and has been responsible for numerous rediscoveries and new attributions at Forum Auctions, including a collection of lost drawings by George Catlin, which sold for over £170,000; a re-discovered field drawing from India by Thomas and William Daniell, which sold for £58,500; a lost manuscript map of Upper Canada from 1790 reattributed to Lt.-Col. Joseph Bouchette, which sold for £42,500; and numerous top prices for prints by Rembrandt van Rijn and Albrecht Dürer.
