Founded originally in East London in 1994 by arts writer, curator and collector, David Tregunna, IAP Fine Art is an established contemporary fine art gallery and fine art print publisher now based in St James’s, London SW1, close to the Royal Academy. Over many years, we have liaised with and assisted several national museums in curating Chris Gollon’s solo shows (including Ferens Gallery, Huddersfield Art Gallery, Chisenhale Gallery, St Paul’s Cathedral and River & Rowing Museum). Museums and public collections have purchased Gollon’s work from us, and we have also shown at ART Chicago and various London art fairs. In 1998, we started working with Maggi Hambling, initially publishing editions of fine art prints, and more recently holding oil paintings, monotypes and watercolours. (In 2011, to fulfil demand, we founded a sister business with its own website, IAP Fine Art Cards, selling online and supplying major retailers).
“The gallery philosophy is a very simple one: we believe in painting. We think that in the right artist’s hands, it can have something important to say about the human condition. At its best, and in any era, great painting is exciting. It can take us somewhere we haven’t been before, provoking us into new areas of thought and feeling.”
