Art

Mayfair is where art meets. Renowned as the home of several of London’s famous galleries and auction houses, it’s the hunting ground of the world’s most formidable art dealers. This is a unique environment, where collectors and gallerists meet in the street and catch up over coffee. Proudly championing both emerging and established art, Mayfair is proof that opposites attract.

Artists, gallerists and collectors have shared knowledge, traded and exhibited in Mayfair for centuries – it’s no surprise that this neighbourhood also houses the Royal Academy of the Arts.

For occupiers at 24 Savile Row, a wealth of world-leading exhibitions is just a lunchtime stroll away. The grande dame of the art world, Sotheby’s, needs no introduction. Founded by London bookseller Samuel Baker in 1744, the venerable British auction house holds often record-breaking global auctions of fine art, jewellery, porcelain and more from its New Bond Street premises.

Also residing on New Bond Street, Halcyon Gallery has been showcasing modern and contemporary art from established and emerging artists to a global audience since 1982.

On Savile Row, Ordovas deals in the best of 20th century and contemporary art. Founder Pilar Ordovas, formerly a senior director at Christie’s, stages museum-quality exhibitions in inspiring exhibition spaces, with many rare and important works loaned from private collections.

One of Europe’s major commercial galleries, Savile Row’s Hauser & Wirth represents over 30 artists and estates, including Turner prize winner Martin Creed. Its dramatic street presence creates a bold platform for its ambitious exhibitions.

Just around the corner on Cork Street, Alan Cristea is Europe’s largest dealer and publisher of 20th century and contemporary prints. At Hanover Square, Blain|Southern represents artists including Bill Viola, Lucian Freud, Tim Noble and Sue Webster in a large space for installations, exhibitions and films.

Around every corner, these and many more globally influential galleries honour the inexorable link between Mayfair and the arts.
