We are pleased to have now moved into our new premises on the 1st floor of 17 Avery Row, Brook Street, London W1K 4BF.
For more than seventy years John Mitchell Fine Paintings has been buyingand selling marine paintings from the seventeenth, eighteenth and earlynineteenth centuries, both by the Dutch pioneers of the subject and their manysuccessors in England . In the wake of the influential Van de Velde studioin London at the end of the seventeenth century,there arose a native tradition ofsea-painting whose rise in stature and quality was commensurate with that ofBritain’s maritime power. Artists such as Monamy,Scott, Brooking, Serres andCleveley were once very familiar to collectors, and their work continues tofind favour with us. We are pleased therefore to draw attention to what lookslike a magnificent survey of the subject currently being held at the YaleCenter for British Art in new Haven, Connecticut (ends on 4th December)and which includes paintings bought by Paul Mellon from John Mitchell in the 1960s.A photo of the lavish accompanying catalogue is shown here.
