Fine Art

Including Old Master & Edwardian paintings, British & European School, etchings & engravings, portrait miniatures, sculpture and tribal art

16th – 20th century

In the days before photographs people relied on art to carry their minds back to loved ones, beautiful vistas, and a clearer understanding of the world. Once photography arrived fine art was forced to move beyond the image capturing instead feelings and ideas which only the artist could do. With it came new techniques tied to impressionism, expressionism, and abstraction; as well as a far better understanding for traditional tribal art.

Amid our hectic modern lives fine art appeals as an antidote, offering a small window of serenity through which to momentarily get lost, breathe and reconnect.
