We are privileged to present ourfirst gallery on this lovely cobbled street, with the sole aim of exhibiting both established and promising new artists.
With a focus on European 19th, 20th and 21st century fine paintings we have punctuated our selection with bright, hot landscapes, cool, fresh seascapes, and beautifully detailed still lives.
