Getting to work hands-on with such incredible artwork. From the research to the physical condition reporting, I love getting to know the stories behind each work consigned to auction.
A Lalanne sheep. There is something so whimsical and charming about them. They each seem to have their own personalities! Not to mention the fact that they are also iconic and hold such significance in art history.
