Aude Fonlupt

Expert Art (classical) / Art (modern)

It feels a bit like travelling through time with each piece of art I review

Aude Fonlupt was 18 years old when she visited the Parisian Hôtel Drouot for the first time and she instantly fell in love with this atmosphere. She was impressed by the many works of art and sculptures, from all centuries, that appealed to so many different people, collectors, art dealers and bargain hunters.

She took all the necessary courses to become an auctioneer, which can take as long as ten years in France, and became one of the youngest auctioneers to lead the auctions at Hôtel Drouot. “The fact that everything can happen in such a short time in auctions really spoke to me. This positive first impression was confirmed during my first internship in a prestigious French auction house. I’ve been on a treasure hunt ever since.”

Over the years she has built up a vast network and appraised thousands of objects, which has given her a full experience and knowledge in arts and antiques. Now she is an expert at Catawiki, where the hunt continues. She loves looking for the story behind an object: where does it come from, who were the previous owners? “It feels a bit like travelling through time with each piece of art I review,” she says. By gaining the trust of the French art market, she keeps offering up more and more interesting and beautiful works in her auctions.
