Carol Vogel confirms her earlier reporting:
After months of rumors and denials from experts at Christie’s, officials there have finally confirmed that Amy Cappellazzo, its chairman of postwar and contemporary art development, is leaving that auction house in February after 13 years to work as a private dealer and adviser.
“The market has changed considerably,” she said. “It’s now a vast industry, and there are tremendous opportunities.”
Update from Christie’s: Amy Cappellazzo will leave Christie’s after the London auctions in February to pursue her career outside the company.
