    FOUNDERS, SÉLAVY

    Emmanuel Di Donna is a leading expert on Surrealist, Modern, and Post-War art. He is the founder of Di Donna Galleries on Madison Avenue, New York, which he opened in 2011. Prior to forming his own gallery, Emmanuel spent seventeen years at Sotheby’s, where he was Vice Chairman of Impressionist and Modern Art Worldwide, overseeing numerous record-breaking sales and securing significant results for many of the most important private collections to come to market in the past two decades. His time at Sotheby's included seven years in Paris and ten years combined in New York (including five years as Vice Chairman), as well as a posting in London. He holds a Master’s Degree in Fine Art from the Courtauld Institute, London.
