Head of Day Sale
As Associate Director and Head of the Modern British & Irish Art Day sale, Alice advises clients on buying and selling 20th century British Art at auction and Private Sale. Alongside her expertise in British Modernism, Studio Ceramics, Post-War British art and the work of Stanley Spencer, Alice is particularly passionate about promoting the work of female and under-represented artists.
Alice joined Christie's in 2011 in the Victorian Pictures, and British Drawings and Watercolours department. In 2012, following her love for Modern art, she joined the Modern British and Irish Art department where she has since been involved in several notable auction sales including: the Noël Coward sale (2015), the Brian Sewell collection (2016), the record-breaking Defining British Art sale (2016), The Collection of Sir Nicholas Goodison (2022) and in leading the launch of the first online auctions for Modern British and Irish Art (2016).
Alice is currently Head of the Modern British & Irish Art Day Sale, which during her tenure has seen Christie's achieve the highest grossing total for the category (October 2021). Prior to this, Alice was Head of the Modern British & Irish Art sale at South Kensington (2016-2017); the Modern British and Impressionist and Modern Art Online and Mid-Season Sales (2016-2019); and the perennially successful Picasso Ceramics sales (2017-2019).
Alice also speaks French and Spanish, holding a First Class Honours Languages degree with Distinction from Edinburgh University. Her dissertation in French focused on the interplay of word and image in the cubist movement at the start of the 20th century.
