"I believe we need art more than ever now because of its healing power and ability to inspire new perspectives and bring people together."
In this time of crisis that we are all living through in different ways, I am deeply grateful to healthcare workers for being on the frontlines of it all to get us through these unprecedented and uncertain times.

Co-Chairman – Impressionist & Modern Art
He is a lead auctioneer in New York, London, Paris, and Hong Kong. Adrien joined Christie’s in 2004 and six years later moved to the Impressionist & Modern Art department in New York.
Adrien successfully secured several game-changing consignments, some of which doubled the previous auction record for the artist. They are Alberto Giacometti’s “Diego en chemise écossaise” in 2013 which sold for $32 million; Manet’s “Le Printemps” in 2014 which was acquired by the Getty Museum for $65 million; and Max Beckman’s “Birds’ Hell” in 2017 which sold for $46 million. As a director and strategist for Impressionist & Modern Private Sales, Adrien also launched a series of innovative private selling exhibitions in Asia, where he gained the trust of today’s most prominent collectors. Adrien also rediscovered the private collection of Claude Monet and, with it, initiated the first Impressionist auction to take place in Hong Kong.
Adrien graduated from the Ecole du Louvre, Paris, where he specialized in Modern Art. He is fluent in French, Italian, Spanish, German and English. The French Ministry of Justice granted Adrien the Commissaire-Priseur license allowing him to conduct auctions in Paris.
