Cristian joined Dreweatts in 2005, gaining professional qualification as a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors soon afterwards. He is currently a Senior Valuer and Auctioneer in the Estates and Collections Department, specialising in European Sculpture and Works of Art.
After graduating from the University of Edinburgh in 1997 with MA joint honours in Ancient History with Classical Art, Cristian joined Christie’s in London. He worked briefly in the Oriental Works of Art department before moving in to the field of European Furniture and Works of Art where he remained for some eight years, before the move to the country.
Cristian has considerable experience in valuation work, (largely for the purposes of Insurance, Probate Tax, Family Division and Sale purposes), as well as in cataloguing larger, off site sales of collections for auction, including the contents of Chirk Castle; the LASSCO Auction at Brunswick House and the Jonker Collection in Amsterdam.
More lately, Cristian has appeared on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow as an expert.
