In 1977 Lillian Browse and William Darby formed Browse & Darby, first opening on Cork Street in the space previously occupied by highly respected partnership, Roland, Browse & Delbanco who had specialised in 19th and 20th century art since the mid 1940s.

In autumn 2023, Browse & Darby opened their new gallery at 34 Bury Street in the heart of St James’s.

Browse & Darby opened in 1977 with a one-man exhibition of ten paintings by the highly acclaimed figurative painter Euan Uglow, who was represented by Browse & Darby until his death in 2000. The gallery has continued to champion figurative painting, mixing contemporary artists from the Euston Road, and Slade Schools: William Coldstream, Anthony Eyton, Patrick George, Anthony Fry, and Jeffrey Camp, with classic British and French artists, including Walter Richard Sickert, William Nicholson, Matthew Smith, Edgar Degas, Auguste Rodin, and other Post-Impressionist masters.
