Amy Cappellazzo, Christie’s former chair of Postwar and Contemporary Department, will start an art agency with art advisor Allan Schwartzman.
From The New York Times:
AN EXPERT JOINS AN ADVISER
Since Amy Cappellazzo’s February departure from Christie’s, where she had been chairman of its postwar and contemporary-art department, rumors have circulated about what she would do next. Turns out she is going into business with Allan Schwartzman, the longtime art adviser who has helped build many important art collections both here and in Brazil.
Their new venture, Art Agency Partners, will advise collectors and foundations on all aspects of their art, from acquisitions and sales to museum involvement and long-term strategy. “The art world has grown so much that collectors are seeking more counsel,” Mr. Schwartzman said, “as they realize how complex the market has become.”
