George Gordon, Co-Chairman Sotheby’s Worldwide Old Master Paintings and Drawings Department, Auctioneer, joined Sotheby’s in 1980 from Trinity College, Dublin.

He has an extensive knowledge of Netherlandish art and has come to enjoy close ties with many leading Dutch experts, scholars and museum curators, and with collectors worldwide. George oversaw the sale of the Henle collection of Dutch and Flemish Old Masters in 1997, and was responsible for the rediscovery of Rubens’ Massacre of the Innocents, which achieved £49.5 million at Sotheby’s in 2002, making it then, and still today, the most expensive Old Master painting ever sold at auction.
