John Mitchell Fine Paintings has been associated with traditional British and European paintings for over 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. From Dutch paintings in the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. to a nineteenth-century Swiss oil in the Louvre, John Mitchell Fine Paintings has a rich history of finding works for museums and international private collectors alike. The gallery is also renowned for its annual exhibition of Alpine art Peaks & Glaciers, which William Mitchell, the leading specialist in the field, has put on and written an accompanying catalogue for every winter since 2001. Across all schools, periods and values, John Mitchell Fine Paintings continues to seek, with rigorous selectivity, the highest standard of quality in the paintings offered for sale, backed up by both scholarship and integrity.
From 29th November – 20th December 2023 we will be holding our Winter Exhibition of paintings, watercolours and drawings. The exhibition will showcase a range of British and European pictures from the 17th – 20th century, with prices ranging from £1,000 – £25,000. We will be holding an evening viewing on Thursday 14th December (6 – 9pm) and warmly invite all clients and friends of the gallery to come and view the paintings.
