Robin Hereford graduated from the University of East Anglia with a degree in the History of Art & Architecture and joined Bonhams in 1998. He was made Departmental Director of the Art Collections, Estates & Valuations Department in 2007, appointed to the Bonhams UK Board in 2010, and in 2017 was made Bonhams Director of Private Clients.

Robin has been responsible for the sale of many large single-owner collections including 'The Zimmerman Horological Collection', 'The Contents of Purslow Hall' and 'The Delphinium Collection', an important collection of early 18th Century Meissen porcelain. Sales that Robin has overseen include 'The Chelsea Collection of Severin Wunderman', 'The Contents of Chateau Montfort' and ' Poetry: The Roy Davids Collection': probably the finest collection of poetry manuscripts ever offered at auction.

Over the years he has handled the successful valuation and sale of many corporate art collections, including those of several FTSE 100 companies, as well as carrying out valuations for museums, galleries and notably the Houses of Parliament. Career highlights have included the sale of exceptional artworks by Stubbs, Dali, Giacometti and Frink, alongside more unusual items such as Lord Lucan's writing desk.

As a Director of the Art Collections, Estates & Valuations Department, Robin also handles valuations for insurance, probate and sale, as well as market valuations for tax and estate planning purposes.
