04 November 2019 / 4:00 am - 5:00 am

On Monday, November 4th, 2019, CIMA is excited to invite its members on a tour of Christie’s Auction House. Founded in 1766 by James Christie, Christie’s has conducted some of the greatest and most celebrated auctions through the centuries. Christie’s offers around 350 auctions annually in over 80 categories showcasing extraordinary works of art, antique treasures, jewels and much more.

On this tour, members will be led by Vanessa Fusco, who is the Vice President and Senior Specialist in Impressionist & Modern Art at Christie’s. Vanessa is responsible for appraising and advising clients on artworks by the foremost artists of the late 19th and first half of the 20th century. Our second guide on this tour will be Alessandro Diotallevi. Alessandro is a Specialist in the Post-War & Contemporary Art department in New York. In 2014, he was the Junior Specialist on the historic Eyes Wide Open: An Italian Vision, the sale of one of the most important collections of Arte Povera which realized fifteen artist records including those for Michelangelo Pistoletto, Janis Kounellis, and Alighierio Boetti.  On this tour, members will get the chance to view the works of art and artifacts on display and ask questions to our two highly qualified guides.
