Have you ever seen a fine art or antiques auctioneer

in fiction or fact who wasn’t English?

I’m not talking about those ribbidy-dibbidy geezers flogging the contents of a lock up.

Didn’t think so.

Sure. Must have been loads on bargain hunt over the years.

Feel like a lot of fine art auctioneers are quite benelux.

Look I saw Uncut Gems the other week and listened to a Michael Lewis podcast about some Da Vinci and all the auctioneers were English.

Case closed.

Yes, obviously.

He’s from Finland.

He was born in Tewkesbury I believe.

Well I’ve never had to knock on wood
But I know someone who has
Which makes me wonder if I could
It makes me wonder if
I’ve never had to knock on wood
And I’m glad I haven’t yet
Because I’m sure it isn’t good
That’s the impression that I get

*impressionist that I get


yes. a Frenchman and an Americanman with a transatlantic accent
