Di Donna Galleries in New York has named Jeremiah Evarts as a director. Evarts was previously the senior vice president and head of Impressionist and modern art evening sales at Sotheby’s, where he worked for the past 14 years until departing last year. He will begin at the gallery on March 1.
At Sotheby’s, Evarts helped oversee various collection sales, including those of the Mellon family, the Finn family, and Barbara and Martin Zweig. In his time as the head of the auction house’s Impressionist and modern art evening sales, records were achieved for Auguste Rodin and late work by Pablo Picasso.
In a statement, Emmanuel Di Donna, who worked closely with Evarts at Sotheby’s before founding the gallery, said, “I am delighted to again be working with Jeremiah and to welcome him to Di Donna Galleries. Jeremiah brings deep expertise and relationships in the field of modern art. He will help to accelerate the gallery’s growth in the secondary market, as well as our focus on presenting museum-quality exhibitions of art of the 20th century.”
