My name is Richard Aronowitz and I am the son of a German-Jewish mother who came to England in 1939 on the Kindertransport, and of an English father. Born in 1970, I grew up with my three brothers in rural Gloucestershire. I have one son and live in Oxford.

I studied modern languages at Durham University and Heidelberg University and art history at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London and at Oxford University.

I have worked in the international art world for three decades and I am now Global Head of Restitution at Christie's auction house.

My essays and reviews on art and poetry have been published in the Oxford Companion to Western Art (Oxford University Press, 2001);  Insiders/Outsiders (Lund Humphries, 2019); Modern Painters; the London Magazine and elsewhere.
