Chorley’s spacious salerooms are the perfect showcase for paintings and prints. With enviable access to private clients in the Cotswolds and beyond, we regularly achieve strong results across all genres. While the Modern Design sales feature mainly 20th Century and Contemporary work including Urban Art, the Fine Art and Country House sales focus on more traditional areas.
Particular strengths of the department include Sporting Art, Old Master paintings and Portrait Miniatures. We have uncovered numerous lost or hidden gems both for sale and during routine Insurance valuations. With proper research and targeted marketing, we have been able to achieve record results for many clients.
