Celebrating the interdisciplinary nature of British Arts and Crafts over the past century across the fields of Fine Art, Prints, Photographs and Design, the sale also reintroduced the field of Contemporary & Studio Ceramics to Sotheby’s, going to achieve consistently strong results for ceramicists including Dame Lucie Rie, Hans Coper, Bernard Leach, James Tower, Magdalene Odundo and Gabriele Koch. Having graduated from The University of Edinburgh with an MA in History with History of Art, Robin has also played a pivotal role in landmark sales and selling exhibitions with Sotheby’s including Bowie/Collector; A Painter’s Paradise: Julian Trevelyan & Mary Fedden at Durham Wharf; Daughter of History, Mary Soames and the Legacy of Churchill; A Way of Life, The Tim Ellis Collection; Lowry: The A.J. Thompson Collection, ABSTRACTION; 1000 Ways of Seeing: The Private Collection of Stanley J. Seeger and The New Situation, Art in London in the Sixties.
