Chris Ewbank founded Ewbank Auctioneers in 1990, though the present companies roots go back further to 1919. Ewbank’s has grown to become the premier antique and fine art auction rooms in Surrey, specialising in sales and valuations at its prominent location 28 miles from Central London.
We are dedicated to giving clients and buyers an efficient and friendly service and, over the years, have always tried to maintain the highest standards, adhering to the principles of probity and ethics of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, and the Society of Fine Art Auctioneers and Valuers, of which we are Members. In 2007 we sold the Robertson Collection of items from the Studio of Francis Bacon. The sale created enormous worldwide interest and achieved a total of over £1M. Chris Ewbank has taken a very active part in the leadership of the profession within the UK. He has been a member of the Fine Arts Advisory Panel of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and is currently Chairman of its Art and Antiques Professional Group. He is also an elected Member of its International Governing Council ( the highest decision making body in the Institution). He joined the Committee of the Society of Fine Art Auctioneers & Valuers in 1994, (he first became a member in 1982), and was Chairman from 2000 - 2007. He has also in recent years been on the Executive Committee of the British Art Market Federation and was one of the first to join the new City of London Guild of Arts Scholars, Dealers and Collectors.
