Emma Rutherford Portrait Miniatures Conultant

Emma began her career working in the Victoria and Albert Museum whilst completing an MA in Victorian Art and Architecture. She set up the Portrait Miniatures Department at Phillip's Auctioneers and after the amalgamation of Phillips and Bonhams she became Departmental Director.

During her time in the auction world, she sourced and handled the Albion Collection, the highest grossing collection of portrait miniatures ever to come to the market.

Emma has made several television appearances and advises the Antiques Roadshow. She has written numerous articles for magazines and national newspapers, and has close working relationships with museum and gallery curators, conservators and restorers. She has also conducted many significant private and public valuations.

 In 2009, Emma's first book was published, entitled 'Silhouette; the Art of the Shadow'. Emma has curated and co-curated many exhibitions of portrait miniatures, including 'Secret Faces' (2008), 'Warts and All; The Portrait Miniatures of Samuel Cooper' (2013) and 'John Smart; A Genius Magnified' (2014). She most recently wrote the introduction to a new book on the artist Adam Buck (A Regency Buck; Adam Buck, by Peter Darvall), which accompanied an exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford in 2015.
