Sotheby’s have appointed Fru Tholstrup as director of their new London S|2 gallery, to oversee the running and strategy behind this new purpose-built space for private selling exhibitions of Contemporary Art in Mayfair.

She joins from Haunch of Venison, the Christie's-owned  gallery where she spent ten years specialising in client development as well as primary and secondary market sales.

She spent the first eight years of her career working at Sotheby's in the Impressionist and Contemporary Art departments.
