Name: Meredith Meuwly
Home: Dallas, Texas

I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Classical Studies and Art History from Duke University in 2000, and then a Masters degree in Modern Art, Connoisseurship, and the History of the Art Market from Christie’s Education in New York in 2001.  I spent the next five years in the Christie’s New York Antiquities Department as sale coordinator and cataloguer of ancient Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and Near Eastern works of art, working on numerous high profile auctions including the Doris Duke Estate, Ancient Egyptian Art from the Harer Family Trust, and the John W. Kluge Morven Collection of Ancient Art.

I joined Heritage Auctions in 2007 as Senior Consignment Director in the Fine & Decorative Arts Department, overseeing two auctions each year, and was promoted to Director of Appraisal Services in 2009.  Currently, I coordinate all of the formal insurance and tax appraisals for the company, as well as other special projects in the Fine & Decorative Arts Department.  I receive hundreds of emails daily from clients all over the world wanting me to value their property.
