An eighteen-year auction house veteran and internationally recognized specialist in Fabergé and Russian works of art, Mark spent a decade as Vice President, Director and Head of Russian Works of Art at Christie’s, where he was responsible for numerous successful and record-breaking sales in New York and London. These include the Imperial Diamond Trellis Egg (New York, private sale); an important and previously undiscovered Fabergé imperial presentation snuff box with portrait miniature (London, £937,250), which established a new world auction record in the category; a rare and highly important Fabergé carved carnelian figure of a gnome (New York, $1,384,000); and the collections of the descendants of Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna and Grand Duke George Mikhailovich.
Mark was the guest curator and catalogue editor of the recent exhibition, Unknown Fabergé: New Finds and Re-Discoveries, at The Museum of Russian Art in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This landmark exhibition showcased more than eighty works by Fabergé, many of them previously unknown (http://tmora.org).
Mark has served as an advisor to private collectors and institutions, assisting with new acquisitions and the management of collections. He was a featured presenter on Fabergé Discoveries from the Collection of Grand Duke George Mikhailovich at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) and Fabergé works from the McFerrin Collection at The Wonder of Fabergé: A Study of the McFerrin Collection at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Mark is a frequent contributor to publications on the subjects of Fabergé and Russian works of art.
