We would like to introduce you to Lydia Sudick, Auctionata expert in 17-18th Old Master Paintings.

Lydia Sudick is an appraiser and dealer, who over the past 23 years has specialized in Old Master paintings; primarily French, Italian, Dutch & Flemish pieces of the 17th and 18th centuries.

From the time Lydia was 16 years old, she knew she wanted to be an art appraiser.  Her love of paintings catapulted her into the study of the History of Art and subsequently led her to Paris, France where her passion for French art was fueled.

With an emphasis on connoisseurship, curatorial expertise and management of collections for an international client base, she has provided full art advisory services in both the private and public sectors: private clients, corporations, attorneys, accountants, estate planners and auction houses.

She holds a Certificate in Appraisal Studies in Fine and Decorative Art from New York University, a Masters degree in Business Administration from the University of Hartford, in Paris, France and Hartford, Connecticut, and a Bachelors degree in Art History from the American University in Paris, Paris, France.  She was recipient of the 1993 Appraisers Association and Sotheby’s Appraisal Award.

Lydia lives and works in the Palm Beach area.
