Gladwell & Patterson is an internationally renowned gallery with a proud history that can be traced back to the mid-eighteenth century. Our focus is on fine oil paintings, watercolours and sculpture, specializing in Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Nineteenth Century art works as well as landscapes and portraits by leading artists practicing today.
The founding principles of Gladwell & Patterson are trust, integrity, quality and, of course, a discerning love of art. All of our transactions reflect these values. We strive to create a blend of old and new, a balance that maintains the standards of yesteryear while embracing the excitement and pleasure of building an art collection today. We endeavor to guide and assist our clients at each step, from their first viewing of a picture in our galleries to finally appreciating it on their own walls.
Originating in the City of London in 1752, Gladwell & Patterson’s flagship gallery is located on London’s famous Beauchamp Place in Knightsbridge. More recently we have opened the doors to Gladwells Rutland in the exclusive market town of Oakham.
Anthony Fuller, the gallery’s owner, embodies the establishment’s calling. “My raison d’etre,” he explains, “is to look around for beautiful paintings. Nothing gives me more pleasure than a great picture.” During the course of its 269-year history the gallery has enjoyed a long and distinguished reputation for discovering the works of future masters.
Whether buying a work from its present owner or placing it in a new home, Anthony and his colleagues rely on their expertise. “We never buy anything unless we like it, and we have touched it,” explains Anthony. His passion for pictures is an indicator as to why three or four generations of some families have come to Gladwell & Patterson for works of art. The same tradition is enjoyed in his own family. Anthony’s son, Glenn, and daughter, Cory, have taken the baton from their father and, together with the gallery team, helped to write next latest chapter in the firm’s history.
