OWNER, APPRAISER, AUCTIONEER, ADVISOR
When she was recruited to head Sotheby’s Latin American Department at the age of 30, Kirsten Dueck became the company’s youngest Department Director in North America and one of only a handful of women to head a paintings department at an international auction house. From 2001-2005 she oversaw a string of record-setting auctions, including the sale of property from the estate of Bill Blass, the estate of Stanley Marcus, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art as well as countless collections in Mexico, South America, Europe and the United States.
Now, with the launch of Tangible Good, Kirsten brings her artworld expertise closer to home, working with families and their estate advisors to appraise and coordinate estates, personal property and fine art in the home. To guide clients through the thorny and often emotional process of estate valuation and distribution, Tangible Good and its parent company Living Art, LLC collaborate with a network of insurance agents, auctioneers, appraisers, attorneys, realtors and advisors specializing in estate and senior services.
Kirsten’s work has been featured by the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, BBC, Financial Times, NPR’s Morning Edition, Art & Auction, and Reuters. Since moving to Virginia in 2006, she has served on the Boards of Directors of the Catholic Business Network of Northern Virginia and Dulles Rotary, and on the Board of Advisors to the Northern Virginia Community Foundation. She is licensed as an auctioneer by the Commonwealth of Virginia (VA Auctioneer #3684).
She lives in rural Virginia outside of Washington, D.C. with her husband and young son.
