Rachel Hidderley has 25 years’ experience of appraising and selling 20th Century British and Irish Art having joined Christie’s in 1987. As head of the department from 1998-2008, she oversaw many highly successful auctions, including selling works from the collections of The Reader’s Digest, the late Raymond Mortimer, Frederick Forsyth, and Peter Meyer, amongst others, which realized new artists’ records, and generated the most successful sales in the category during that period.
Rachel sources and appraises pictures and sculpture for auction and private sales, as well as valuing works in public collections, and particularly works on developing the sales of L.S. Lowry paintings at auction, where Christie’s holds 93% market leadership. Rachel holds an honours degree in English Studies from The University of Nottingham and has contributed to the study and discovery of many Modern British works.
