Gerrish Fine Art

Hilary Gerrish started his career in art dealing in 1972, as a partner in N.W. Lott and H.J. Gerrish. He worked from their gallery in St. James’s until 1985, at which point he went independent and created Gerrish Fine Art. The company has since developed into a family business; first with the addition of his daughter Georgie in 2008 (MA Art History, The Courtauld Institute of Art) and subsequently of his son Henry in 2010 (MA Art History, St Andrews).

Gerrish Fine Art have an international reputation as specialists in British art, with a focus on 19th and 20th century printmaking. We also deal in American and European works, including prints, drawings, paintings, photography and sculpture. Gerrish Fine Art is now predominantly an online gallery, though customers can be met, on a ‘by appointment’ basis, at our domestic viewing space in the heart of London’s St. James’s. We present monthly online exhibitions on our website and publish physical catalogues on occasion for special collections.
