Gerrish Fine Art have an international reputation as specialists in British art, with a focus on 19th and 20th century printmaking. We also deal in American and European works, including prints, drawings, paintings, photography and sculpture. Gerrish Fine Art is now predominantly an online gallery, though customers can be met, on a ‘by appointment’ basis, at our domestic viewing space in the heart of London’s St. James’s. We present monthly online exhibitions on our website and publish physical catalogues on occasion for special collections.
Hilary Gerrish started his career in art dealing in 1972, as a partner in N.W. Lott and H.J. Gerrish. He worked from their gallery in St. James’s until 1985, at which point he went independent and created Gerrish Fine Art. The company has since developed into a family business; first with the addition of his daughter Georgie in 2008 (MA Art History, The Courtauld Institute of Art) and subsequently of his son Henry in 2010 (MA Art History, St Andrews).
Gerrish Fine Art has placed numerous works of outstanding quality and rarity into the permanent collections of over 50 international museums and institutions. We further work directly with many of the world’s leading private collectors in our field. We regularly lend works of art from our collection to museum and gallery exhibitions, and have curated several group and solo shows of our own over the years.

Gerrish Fine Art is delighted to present a booth dedicated to Post-War and Contemporary printmaking created in Great Britain and North America. From Pop Art to Minimalism, and Figurative Art to Abstraction, these prints demonstrate the extraordinary experimentation and depth of expression found in the art of the second half of the twentieth century. These prints celebrate both the remarkable talents of the artists and the exceptional technical expertise of the master printers with whom they collaborated, at some of the top printmaking studios across the globe: Rupert Jasen Smith (New York), The Litho Shop (Santa Monica, California), Gemini GEL (Los Angeles), Styria Studio (New York), Cirrus Editions (Los Angeles), Universal Limited Art Editions (Long Island), Pratt Graphics (New York), Tyler Graphics (Mount Kisco, New York), Studio Prints (London) and the White Ink Studio (London).
Notable works for sale include: a rare landscape (one of only two) by Frank Auerbach, Hockney's iconic 'Pool Made With Paper and Blue Ink', a number of proof screenprints by Iraqi artist Dia Azzawi from the collection of the master screenprinter of the White ink Studio, Bernard Cook, Andy Warhol's 1983 screenprint 'Sidewalk' and recent works by Harland Miller and Jonas Wood.
