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, and their colleague James Astley Birtwistle.

Peaks & Glaciers 2021

Celebrating our 20th year of Peaks & Glaciers we are delighted to offer a selection of over 50 paintings, drawings and vintage photographs capturing the Alps in all seasons - surely a tonic for all of us today.  Indulge in some of our vibrant and contemporary mountainscapes, suitable for any wall, or find yourself absorbed in the atmospheric scenes by the earlier peintre-alpinistes, such as Loppé, Contencin and Fourcy or feel the thrill of an early painting expedition as seen in our watercolour by Samuel Grimm from 1774.

This year’s prices will start from £1,500 which would afford the rare opportunity to own an original drawing by Gabriel Loppé, or if photographs are more your thing, unique images of the early days in St Moritz from the 1870’s. 


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.
