John Mitchell Fine Paintings has been associated with traditional British and European paintings for ninety years. With a gallery just off Brook Street in the heart of London’s Mayfair, the business is now run by James and William Mitchell, the grandsons of John Mitchell who began the dealership in 1931.


John Mitchell Fine Paintings is an independent family business established in 1931. Now in its third generation it is run by James Mitchell and William Mitchell. The gallery is located on the first floor of 17 Avery Row just off New Bond Street in London and visitors are welcome throughout the week. James and William Mitchell specialise in buying and selling European and British paintings and drawings from the sixteenth to the twentieth century, especially those from private collections. John Mitchell also act as agents for vendors and advise on all aspects of picture collecting, in particular framing, conservation and valuations.


James Hart Dyke MONT BLANC: The Summit Paintings

A beautifully produced 130 page exhibition book about the adventure is now available for purchase (£30 + P&P). Click here to order a copy.

In July 2022, James Hart Dyke climbed Mont Blanc via its rarely attempted north face to paint from the summit at sunset, emulating as closely as possible the conditions under which the French painter of the Alps, Gabriel Loppé (1825-1913) made his pair of summit paintings at sunset in August 1873. From 27th September - 8th October we will be holding an exhibition of James' paintings from the adventure, and larger studio works made over the last year. Read more here.
