James Harvey British & Sporting Art opened in May 2008 as a joint venture with Mallett. Having traded independently for the past five years the recent acquisition of Mallett by the Fine Art Grouppresented the gallery with an opportunity to develop a strategic alliance that we believe will offer clients the most comprehensive services. James has recently joined the management board of Mallett with responsibility as Global Head of Fine Art and private treaty sales.
Leslie Pratt founded Cricket Fine Art in 1996 to assemble and represent a selection of gifted contemporary artists and introduce their work to a wider audience. With a degree in Fine Art and manyyears working in London galleries, Leslie had garnered considerable acumen in recognizing new talent and felt passionately about helping to sustain and promote it. Nevertheless, at that time, as a mother of three young children, it was convenient (necessary!) for Leslie's first 'gallery' to be at home.
We believe that any person can learn the skills of drawing and painting whether they are gifted or an absloute beginner. Talent can only be discovered and developed once you have learned the basics.Without these, your art and your ability to create will always be limited and not in your control. At Chelsea Fine Arts, our mission is to teach young people how to paint and draw by focusing on showing them how to observe and analyse what they see.
