Anthony Reynolds Gallery was established in a large space
on the edge of the City of London in 1985. The gallery moved
to the West End in 1990 and the current building in Great Marlborough
Street was opened in 2002. The building has a unique character
that reflects the singularity of our standpoint.
There are 23 artists represented exclusively by the gallery
and works by over 250 artists have been presented in around
180 exhibitions over the past 20 years.
Anthony Reynolds Gallery is best known
for the discovery of exceptional young artists and the development
of their careers over the long term and we have also focussed
on the work of true independents of all generations, in all media.
We see our 'home' as a source,
where individual artists and individual works can be discovered,
investigated, nurtured and then placed. We work closely with
major museums and non-commercial institutions in developing long-term
critical appreciation of the work of our artists. The only guiding
principles in selecting an artist have been an instinctive conviction
about the importance or potential of their work and a perception
that within their chosen field of endeavour they are leading
the field. Thus there is no stylistic or generational thread
running through the programme but strong elements of surprise,
independence and aesthetic and intellectual stimulation. Many
of the artists were first exhibited in this gallery and have
since gone on to become major figures in the international arena.
