James Baskerville joined Christie’s in 2014 and is a Specialist with a depth of knowledge spanning from Old Master Prints to Contemporary printmaking. As a valuer and business getter for the London auctions, James travels mainly in the UK, Belgium, Germany and Scandinavia and is heavily involved in the Old Master Prints auction held annually between London and New York.

As Head of Sale for Banksy editions at Christie’s, James has a keen interest in contemporary printmaking and has set the record price for a Banksy print with Girl with Balloon – Colour AP (Gold) and for STIK, with the deluxe set of Liberty. James also consigned and curated the online auction Feelings in Colour, a celebration of Howard Hodgkin’s graphic works which set a record price for an editioned print by the artist with the monumental As Time Goes By (Red).

Some of James’s favourite past consignments include the pair of Andy Warhol’s Moonwalk which set a record price for the subject at auction and works from the collection of Dr. Heinrich Becker including a rare impression of Edvard Munch’s The Girls on the Bridge; as well as rare editions sold by Private Sale.
