Sphinx Fine Art, named after the fourteenth-century B.C. sphinxes outside the Russian Academy of Arts, St. Petersburg, was founded in London by Edward Strachan and Roy Bolton in 2007. The gallery has a dual focus, Old Master paintings and drawings, from the fifteenth to the early nineteenth centuries, and Russian and Russian Orientalist paintings, from the eighteenth to early twentieth centuries.
The gallery has staged numerous exhibitions, examining various aspects of Old Master and Russian art. The three floors of exhibition space, in our Kensington Church Street gallery, allow us to stage large and diverse exhibitions, helping us to meet our clients’ wide-ranging needs. To coincide with each exhibition the gallery also produces a heavily-researched catalogue, which reflects the scholarly approach and emphasis on quality that underpins everything that we do. In addition to these major exhibitions, the gallery also participates at some of the world’s leading art fairs, and has quickly developed a reputation as one of London’s leading dealers. We always welcome visitors to the gallery, and look forward to assisting both new and experienced collectors alike in the years to come.
