Henry Wyndham

Henry Wyndham spoke honestly and openly about his experiences within one the largest auction houses, how it took 6 months of persuasion from his predecessor to take on the role and how his first experience in the auction house aged 22 consisted of just 2 buyers. He spoke about the influence of China and Russia in art buying and investment and how he would recommend to buy a piece of art out of love rather than investment. A night filled with hilarious anecdotes of his 22 years at Sotheby’s and his passion for art, ending the night with a classic Tommy Cooper impression that had the audience rolling around laughing.
