  • About

    James Hyman has had galleries in Mayfair and St James's in central London for more than twenty years. 


    James Hyman Fine Art Limited was founded in 1999 and aspires to deal in museum quality fine art of art historical significance in particular by twentieth century British Artists. The gallery specialises in modern British drawings, paintings, and sculpture, especially by the School of London. The gallery represents many artists and estates as well as having a deep inventory of paintings and drawings.


    Exhibitions have included represented gallery artists as well as high profile solo exhibitions of Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Pablo Picasso and Bridget Riley.


    In 2008 James Hyman decided to develop a programme of photography exhibitions. The rapid expansion of this part of the business, as well as the different clientele for vintage nineteenth and early twentieth century photographs, led to the creation of a second company, James Hyman Photography Limited.


    The highest profile photography exhibition so far was devoted to the photographs of Linda McCartney and was co-curated by Paul McCartney and James Hyman.


    In addition to exhibitions, publications, scholarship and art fairs (Frieze Masters, Masterpiece, Paris Photo etc), James Hyman’s core business is as an art advisor. We supply bespoke, expert advice to first time and experienced collectors, helping to source work and advising on acquisitions and sales.


    As well as working closely with private collectors we regularly sell and loan to Museums and public collections across the world.
