The email is circulating this morning announcing Fabrizio Moretti’s further expansion by going into partnership with Christie’s former co-Head of Old Masters, Richard Knight:
After leaving his role as co-Chairman of Old Master and 19th century art at Christie’s in July, Richard Knight has formed a new partnership with Fabrizio Moretti of Moretti Fine Art, under the banner of Knight Moretti. Based at the Moretti Gallery on Ryder Street in St. James’s, London, together they will operate as dealers and agents in Old Master European art. Richard Knight Fine Art Ltd. will also act as an independent dealer.
Knight had been with Christie’s for 11 years but says he is excited to be returning to independent art dealing: “Having spent the greater part of my working life as a dealer, I am delighted to be returning to a world I know so well. It is also particularly pleasing for me to be embarking on this new venture in association with Fabrizio Moretti, one of today’s most impressive old master dealers and a friend whom I have known and admired from the earliest days of his business.
