A long-standing business with over thirty years of experience in the international fine art and antiques market, H&H Gallery houses a large collection of Islamic and European works, amassed over two continents (Middle East and Europe) and dating to the 8th century onwards.
Our collection spans fine and decorative art and features a variety of objects in different media including – but not limited to – ceramics, glass, metalwork, arms & armour, wood/ivory/stone pieces, jewelry, painting, manuscript painting, textiles and carpets. We also collect works of modern Arab art, possessing paintings from notable artists among the avant-garde movements of twentieth century Baghdad.
H&H takes its symbol from an abstraction of the emblem of the penultimate Mamluk ruler, Sultan Al-Ghouri, featured on a magnificent basin within the collection. Recognised for his faithful patronage of artisan craft and trade, Al-Ghouri’s commitment to the arts, even during a period of economic upheaval, is an approach we hope to emulate in our selection of items.
H&H Gallery maintains strong relationships with clients and institutions, and consults with exterior specialists to ensure the authenticity of objects.
We invite you to come visit us at our boutique at 48 Beauchamp Place or to book an appointment at one of our alternative locations, such as the showroom in Park Royal or in our office, situated in the heart of Mayfair.
The art dealer Andras Kalman (1919 - 2007) had a rare, discerning eye for the fresh, original impulse underlying the best modern art - a pristine, non-academic quality evident too in his impressive collection of 18th and 19th century naive British paintings with their beautifully awry perspectives. Visitors to his gallery were invariably enchanted by his courteous charm, flair and wittily, sometimes uproariously, perceptive stories about artists whose work he showed, including L.S. Lowry, Ben Nicholson and Graham Sutherland.
He was born into a Jewish family in the small town of Mateszalka in Hungary on 24th May 1919, where his father was a prosperous pharmacist. At the age of nineteen, he came to England first to study English, then chemistry at Leeds University. He never saw his family again; they perished in the Holocaust.
In 1949 he opened up a small art gallery in Manchester in a basement in a former air raid shelter. With a young man's chutzpah, he set his sights high, writing to Ben Nicholson, Henry Moore, Jacob Epstein, Matthew Smith, Lucian Freud and others, requesting the loan of works on a sale or return basis. Most responded well, but not so the public, none of whom turned up for the first private view. A Manchester Guardian typesetter misread Kalman's cursive script for "new gallery opening" as "Crane Gallery opening". So he simply adopted this singular name, the gallery thereafter being known as the Crane Kalman Gallery. Towards the end of the first show, the local painter L.S. Lowry came in and, sensing that Kalman was struggling, bought a small painting. So began a lifelong friendship.
In 1957 Kalman moved to London and set up the Crane Kalman Gallery at 178 Brompton Road. He showed many artists from the Ecole de Paris in 1963 putting on a show titled 'Soutine - Modigliani' (with a characteristically phrased sub-title 'A modest complement to the Tate Gallery Exhibition').
Kalman staged many exhibitions of works by artists he felt were critically underrated: Nicholson's first wife Winifred, the maker of sensuous yet transcendent flower paintings; Alan Lowndes, the self-taught but far from naive painter of ruggedly poignant scenes of northern English urban life; and Celso Lagar, the spirited Spanish painter of the bohemian circus, pre-eminent among them. He also liked to highlight neglected aspects of the artists. He was, for example, infuriated by the growing popular myth of Lowry as a grumbling misanthrope, saying he found him "warm, friendly, generous though lonely". In 1968, he put on a revelatory show, 'The Loneliness of L S Lowry', which included disquietingly empathetic oil sketches of ostracised down-and-outs, a man searching a dustbin for food, a bearded woman. He also showed what he described to me as 'lonely Lowrys', bleak yet awe-inspiring moor scenes and nearly all-white seascapes.
Kalman's warmth and erudition attracted many writers, actors and film and theatre directors. Yet ironically, what often brought them to his gallery was a subtle, unsensational, contemplative quality announced in the title of a 1999 exhibition, 'Silence in Painting'. This resounding quietness manifested itself here in landscapes by Giorgio Morandi, abstracts by Ben Nicholson, and the spacious, luminous paintings of Mary Newcomb, the East Anglian painter Kalman had discovered and successfully exhibited.
He felt strongly that art should intimately move and nourish the viewer, telling me that when he visited Henry Moore, he was "aware of the humanity of the person. Moore would have a small sculpture on a table, some so beautiful you want to caress them, and that is the sort of art I like."
Two of his children, Sally and Andrew, continue to run the gallery along with Robin Light who joined the business in 1986.

We produce high-end luxury design, covering all aspects of a project from design and planning to practical completion. Our work has been published and exhibited widely at, amongst other events, the London Architecture Festival, the Furniture Fair in Milan, Palais de Tokyo in Paris and the Goethe Institute in Beijing.
The Queen's Gallery is a public art gallery at Buckingham Palace, home of the British monarch, in London. It exhibits works of art from the Royal Collection (those works owned by the King or Queen "in trust for the nation" rather than privately) on a rotating basis; about 450 works are on display at any one time.The gallery is at the west front of the Palace, on the site of a chapel bombed during the Second World War, and first opened in 1962. Over the following 37 years it received 5 million visitors, until it was closed in 1999–2002 for extension work carried out by John Simpson. On 21 May 2002, the gallery was reopened by Elizabeth II to coincide with her Golden Jubilee. The extension added the current Doric entrance portico and several new rooms, more than tripling the size of the building. It is open to the public for much of the year.
Fine art is increasingly sought out for investment and a store of wealth. Witness the fact that the market has expanded 600% in 20 years.
New buyers are there in numbers, from established and emerging economies. Not just individuals; a growing number of public and private museums are hunting for work to hang on their walls.
Demand is increasing, supply is constrained. Art from the Renaissance through to the modern era is no longer being produced. The great modern names – people like Picasso, Lichtenstein, Warhol, Pollock – are no longer with us.
Imitate Modern is an art gallery in the heart of London which exhibits works by the most inspiring and exciting emerging artists, together with arts most established stars.
We have been serious collectors of contemporary art for over twenty years and use this gallery as a way of passing the pleasure of owning art to our friends, associates and the world. Our private views are fast becoming infamous for being the most talked about and entertaining nights on the art calendar.
Exhibitions range from serious paintings and sculpture, to pop silkscreens and contemporary photography, but our intention remains the same – to help our clients build interesting and enriching collections, and most of all enjoy art in the most engaging way possible.

The Fine Art Society was founded in 1876 by a group of knowledgeable art collectors. Comprising of a five storey town house in Mayfair, it is the oldest gallery in London. Since its inception the gallery has always championed and worked directly with living artists, giving The Camden Town Group their first show and holding historic shows that have since entered the canon of art history. It is at this location that Whistler invented the concept of a solo exhibition and introduced evenly spaced installations against pale walls – a precursor for every contemporary gallery today.
In recent years the gallery has embraced the contemporary arts along side it's twentieth and nineteenth century heritage and increased cross-cultural links, particularly in Asia and Australia. Exciting artists have joined the gallery’s core stable and these are complimented by internationally recognized artists who participate in critically engaged survey shows.
From its base in Mayfair, Gallery Elena Shchukina brings emerging contemporary artists to London.
London's art scene is the most vibrant in the world. Gallery Elena Shchukina is one of the most exciting contemporary art spaces in the city. Dedicated to international contemporary artists, most of whom have never before been exhibited in the UK, this superbly curated gallery has become a must-see location for international artists and their clients.
The gallery recognises no international or artistic borders. We believe in choosing international contemporary artists, painters and sculptors, who display exceptional talent, technical skill and creativity, and in exhibiting them with empathy, comprehension and judgement. Through our carefully thought out programme, we deliver confident, engaging modern art exhibitions which are accessible to everyone. A lecture programme accompanies each exhibition - it is an opportunity not only to find out about the artist but also about the particular vision underlying the gallery itself.
Elena's vision combines a love of the technique of creation coupled with a passionate interest in colour. These two aspects inform our exhibitions: our artists tend to have mastered a unique skill or have a particular talent that has not been shown before in the UK. Their use of colour is complex and emotionally engaging; the combination of skill and colour produces a synthesis that is essentially Elena Shchukina.

"It is Midnight on the 13 April, 1759.
Former Royal Academy of Music sensation, the imposing Italian diva, Faustina Bordoni, has returned to England for the first time in decades to reignite her London career, with Handel’s assistance.
But the maestro’s health is fast failing. It’s late. The house is quiet.
As Handel’s servants tend his bedside, Faustina, tired and tetchy after an arduous journey, faces an anxious wait to see the ailing genius – with only a lowly maidservant for company.
What follows is both unexpected and disquieting…"

ATLAS Gallery was founded in 1994 by Director and Owner Ben Burdett.
Originally located in the Hoxton neighbourhood of London during the late 1990’s, the gallery became a well-known exhibition space in the heart of London’s new and vibrant contemporary art scene. In 2001 ATLAS moved to its present location in the centre of London and has, over the last decade, become one of the foremost galleries in London dealing exclusively in fine art photography.
ATLAS Gallery hosts approximately six exhibitions per year. The gallery specialises primarily in classic and modern 20th Century vintage photography, photojournalism and fashion photography, in addition to representing work by a number of important contemporary photographers. In 2005 ATLAS became the official gallery agent of Magnum Photos in the United Kingdom. In June 2012 ATLAS Gallery will launch ATLAS Contemporary, introducing an exclusive group of extraordinary young to mid-career contemporary artists to the London art scene.
The gallery is both active in encouraging work by young artists and photographers and assisting collectors to come into closer contact with these works. The gallery works closely with private clients and corporate collections to assemble important and unique art collections, as well as being actively involved in the acquisition of exceptional modern and contemporary works by many museums and public collections worldwide.
ATLAS has a small amount of material represented on our website to view: www.atlasgallery.com
