NEAL MELTZER worked at Christie, Manson
and Woods from 1990-1998, the fine art auction house. Between
1995 and 1998 he was the director of Contemporary Art, and worked
on such important sales as the collections of Frederik Roos,
Gerald S. Elliot, Douglas S. Cramer, Boris Leavitt, Victor and
Sally Ganz (the greatest collection of twentieth century art
ever sold at auction) and the Herbig Collection, the first major
conceptual art auction.
Prior to that, from 1994 to 1995, Mr. Meltzer was the head of
Christie's in Los Angeles, where he was instrumental in the
expansion of Christie's West Coast operation. There he helped
to establish auctions specializing in Contemporary Art, Prints,
Automobiles, Jewelry and Hollywood Memorabilia.
Mr. Meltzer graduated from Northwestern University in Evanston,
Illinois in 1989, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History.
