Director, Head of Day Sale
Gus is a Director of Modern British Art and has a keen interest in Post-War British Art, particularly British Pop Art and the work of artists such as Sir Peter Blake, Richard Hamilton, Allen Jones and David Hockney; and Constructivism heralded by the likes of Victor Pasmore, Antony Hill and Kenneth and Mary Martin.
He joined Christie’s in 2005, becoming Head of Sale for British and Continental Pictures at South Kensington in 2007 and then Head of Sale for Modern British Art in 2012. He has worked on several important single owner collections including The Leslie Waddington Collection in 2016 which he was jointly responsible for and was 100% sold.
Christie’s leads the market for British Pop Art, which Gus has been instrumental in developing through record breaking consignments in recent years. In 2013 he helped curate When Britain Went Pop at Christie’s Mayfair, the first comprehensive exhibition in London dedicated to British Pop Art since the 1960s. In 2016, he assisted with the This Was Tomorrow exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, writing an essay for the catalogue which was the first survey of British Pop Art by a German museum. Gus holds an honours degree in History of Art from the University of Bristol, writing his dissertation on Abstract Art in Post-War St Ives.
