Arielle Bremby is the Junior Specialist for Swann Galleries' Illustration Art department. Since her arrival, the department has expanded and increased its sale revenue by nearly 15%. Arielle was instrumental in the research and cataloguing of the department’s first fall sale in September 2016, which saw record prices for works by Georges Lepape and the Russian-born French artist Erté. She also contributed to the valuation of two pen and ink works by Windsor McCay: Death at the Races, circa 1910, sold for $10,625, and 200 Million Light Years, 1931, which garnered $12,500.
Arielle is a former contributing author for Oxford University Press' Benezit Artist Dictionary, and painting instructor at the Boston nonprofit Artists for Humanity.
Arielle worked previously with the Vintage Poster, Photographs, and Book departments, and holds a B.A. in painting with a minor in art history from Boston University, and an M.A. in Contemporary Art from Sotheby's Institute of Art.
