Appraiser Colleene Fesko’s Million-Dollar Diego Rivera Discovery
In 2013, Fesko will be featured in a number of episodes of Antiques Roadshow’s Season 17, and two of her appraisals are already predicted to be season highlights. On January 7, an episode filmed in
artists' estates with galleries. "We rarely undertake a serious legal issue without the help of a lawyer," she notes, "Why wouldn't we want a knowledgeable professional guiding us when tens of thousands or even millions of dollars are at stake?"
Fesko's easy-going charm, ready smile and engaging personality may mask the seriousness of her purpose, but she is laser-like when focused on a project. In 2011, she co-presented the estate collection of works by the expatriate painter Charles H. Rathbone, Jr. (American, 1902-1936) with Boston's Martha Richardson Fine Art Gallery, and she is currently collaborating with a Boston museum to launch yet another exhibition.
"I spend full-time doing what I love, so it never seems like work to me," she laughs. "The past three years have been exciting, fulfilling and full of surprises -- who could ask for anything more -- except for many more years of the same."
