Michael Goedhuis, trained as an economist with degrees at the Courtauld Institute in art history and with an MBA from INSEAD in Fontainebleau, started his career in investment banking in New York and London. He then joined Jacob Rothschild (now Lord Rothschild)’s Colnaghi specialising in Persian, Mughal and Islamic art.
Major collections were curated and sold by him to numerous institutions including The Rothschild Collection to the Shahbanu of Iran and the Vever Collection to the Smithsonian Institution. He subsequently expanded his dealing activities to India, Japan and China, concentrating on important antiquities which he continues to deal in.
Most of his activity since then has been directed at describing both the resurgence of cultural activity in the China of today and the key relevance of Chinese Ink art to contemporary aesthetics. In addition to representing the best contemporary Chinese artists, his activities now include exhibiting work by the best of the new generation of Western artists, both painters and sculptors.
