Our Lists introduce 100 works to our large stock of oil paintings, watercolours, drawings and prints each month.

They are usually published in two halves, in the first and third weeks of the month. We treat email enquiries about List pictures in strict order of receipt.

Images: These are intended as an indication of the work – please telephone or email  if you have any questions about the photograph’s relationship to the original. We are always happy to send further photos – frames, versos, inscriptions, something to give scale – so please do ask.

Postage: Most works can be packed and posted, inland and abroad. Quotes can be sent.

Approval Service: We are happy to send works on approval, but this is subject to discussion.
