We deal only in oil paintings; no prints of any kind. We believe everyone should own at least one beautiful piece of original artwork. That said; clients should always bear in mind that the vast majority of paintings we deal in are antiques - works over 100 years old and frequently much older and will therefore invariably retain some evidence of historical damage and repair.
During its lifetime a 150-year old oil painting may well have been exposed to extremes of heat or cold, intrusion of water, bumps, cuts and natural age-related deterioration, all of which require restoration. Like galleries and conventional art dealers, they have massive overheads with premium addresses and numerous expensive (but not necessarily knowledgeable) staff to maintain. Its ironic that 99.9% of the worlds fine art is owned by the wealthiest 0.01% of the population when so many of the artists who created it lived and died in relative poverty. The fact is that the art world, especially in times of global recession, thrives on inequality.
But whilst the possibility of purchasing works by Leighton, Holman Hunt, Constable, and Turner is always going to be the preserve of the super-rich, it has never been a better time to invest in works by their contemporaries.
