Like all Christie’s employees, in fact like most who work in the art and antiques world, I have reached where I am now because of my passion – passion for discovering and learning but most of all for collecting. Being able to truly understand our clients and the love and attachment they feel towards their collections is an incredibly important part of what we do and how we conduct our auctions; every collection is different. One particular sale this month, The Ross Hamilton Collection on 27 February, marks the end of an era for Mark Boyce and his late business partner, Ross Hamilton. Their shop on Pimlico Road, one of the first antique shops in the area, has traded for over 40 years and this shall be their final sale. It is a chance to celebrate the vision and taste of the owners, and comprising over 375 lots ranging from £400 to £40,000 each, it is sure to be a special occasion. www.christies.com
