Andrew joined the Picture Department at Philips Auctioneers headquarters in London, and was quickly involved in the cataloguing and valuation of pictures over a wide range of periods and schools. He became Head of a young department, but after seven years at Phillips took the opportunity to move to Sotheby’s for access to better pictures and greater expertise around him. He was a key member of the Old Master department and learnt a great deal there but found that increasingly his more generalised background involved in valuations of all sorts of pictures throughout Britain and often abroad.
Andrew set up his own valuation and consultancy business over thirty years ago, with a particular emphasis on pictures. He is delighted to share his expertise with Kinghams clients in identifying, advising on auction current values and cataloguing to the highest industry standard.
