Leslie Waddington, the chairman of London’s Waddington Custot Galleries (2.0/F11), is to receive a lifetime achievement award from the Federation of European Art Galleries Association tomorrow in Art Basel’s VIP Lounge. “I’m touched,” Waddington says. He began working with his father, the Irish art specialist Victor Waddington, in 1958, before opening his own gallery in 1966. “He’s consistently been a great dealer,” says the association’s board member David Juda (2.0/B16), whose mother, Annely, won the same award in 2007.
