art auctioneer

Usually a broad term for an art auction house specialist, and sometimes it refers specifically to a person who conducts an auction by announcing the lots and controlling the bidding.

To work as an art auctioneer, one must become both a specialist in fine art and a good business-person. As if that was not enough one must do so with a genuine passion and impeccable presentation technique.
