Garo, the portrait photographer. Karsh started his professional career in Ottowa, Canada in 1932, photographing politicians and dignitaries. His international acclaim would come in 1941 after photographing Winston Churchill, and his career continued to gather steam and attention until his retirement in 1992.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
