We are twentieth-century Modern British specialists with objects and artworks from many disciplines and mediums. All our works are selected using a curatorial approach – we buy and sell only what we love.
The gallery was founded a decade ago in the village of Kingsclere, near to home, on the Hampshire-Berkshire border. We are now a small team, including Nathan Barker and Jane Skingley who may be known to fair visitors. As well as prominent Modern British names, such as Ivon Hitchens, Elisabeth Frink and Victor Pasmore, we highlight less widely-known artists, such as John Hubbard, Gwyther Irwin and Philip Jones, and carefully chosen living painters and sculptors.
We have a wide inventory covering all price points, including 20th-Century paintings, prints, works on paper and ceramics, contemporary art and sculpture, as well as furniture, fabrics and design.
We are inspired by so many places from St Ives to Kettle’s Yard, from Charleston House to Tate Britain. All our influences are currently being drawn upon in the renovation of a former ropemaker’s house in Kingsclere, the gallery’s new home from Spring 2021.
Clients come to us for our selection of distinctive items. Whether a Pop Art print, a thirties landscape or a contemporary still life, we have to approve and love everything that we sell. We show how to live with art and integrate it in the home, whether a little etching or a museum-quality painting.
