Claudia Dwek

  • Chairman, Contemporary Art, Europe | Deputy Chairman, Europe | Chairman, Italy


Claudia Dwek began the second phase of her career at Sotheby’s in 1991, when she was named Head of the department at Sotheby’s Italy and established the first Modern & Contemporary Art department at that location. She has the distinction of having been the youngest woman in Italy to become an Auctioneer.

Over the years she has organised several successful sales of foreign collections of Italian Art in Italy, such as the Estorick Collection (1995) and the Seeger Collection (1998). Along with these Italian activities, she works closely with Sotheby’s London and New York offices to organise special sales, for example, the Plaza Collection of Paintings by Morandi (1997) and the first 20th Century Italian Art sale in London (1999).

She had initially joined the company in London in 1986, but left in 1988 to work for Finarte Milan, where she remained for two years before taking up her current post.
