    Alasdair Nichol Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Alasdair Nichol originally trained as a painter in Aberdeen before graduating with a master's degree from the University of Ulster at Belfast in 1984. He has exhibited his work in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany.

    Mr. Nichol joined Phillips Auction House in Edinburgh as head of Fine Art in the Glasgow salesroom in 1989. While there, he also lectured part time at the Glasgow School of Art. He subsequently moved to Phillips in London to specialize in Modern and Contemporary art and shortly thereafter was appointed director of Paintings for Phillips New York. In 1999, he joined Freeman's, America's oldest auction house, as vice president.

    In addition to lecturing in the United States and Great Britain, Mr. Nichol is an experienced auctioneer who divides his time between New York and Philadelphia. He is also the North American representative for Lyon & Turnbull, Scotland's leading auction house.
