Established in 1993, for the last thirty years Dickinson has been one of the world’s leading private art galleries handling exceptional works of art across categories from Old Masters to Impressionist and Modern art. Dickinson’s philosophy is to offer collectors the opportunity to buy masterpieces of Western art from the Renaissance to the Twentieth Century, providing the provenance and scholarly background to each painting and sculpture, and advising on framing, hanging and all other aspects of collecting.
Dickinson has close connections both to leading private collectors and institutions worldwide and we have sold to over thirty museums internationally, such as the National Gallery, London, the National Gallery of Art, Washington, the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, the Getty Museum, Los Angeles, and the Louvre Abu Dhabi.
Founder and Chairman, Simon Dickinson is known for his famously discerning eye for paintings, and has discovered works by Botticelli, Titian, Rubens and Constable and many others in a career lasting more than fifty years. Simon is a passionate collector and advocate for Old Master Paintings.
Dickinson has recently opened a new chapter with the arrival of Milo Dickinson as Managing Director. Echoing the career of his father, Milo joined from Christie’s where he worked for over a decade in several leading roles in both the Old Master Paintings and European Sculpture departments. A widely respected art expert and enthusiast, Milo is on the Steering Committee for the National Gallery Young Ambassadors and on the Board of the Friends of the Bargello Museum.
Dickinson is now a second-generation family business, with father and son, Simon and Milo Dickinson uniting to create a gallery combining unrivalled and passionate art expertise and a unique understanding of the ever-changing art market.
Dickinson has access to artworks which are rarely available on the public market and will continue to be the first stop for art lovers and collectors who wish to acquire works from private collections in a discreet and professional fashion.
