Website Development!

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed a new section in the menu bar at the top of this page. Under ‘Buy Online’ you will now find works that can be bought directly from this website. It is eleven years since we began publishing and illustrating our stock online. So this is a natural progression. But is still an exciting development!

The ‘Buy Online’ feature is not yet available across the whole of the website. We have started with some Groups and Exhibitions, for which we think the model works very well. But we will extend it to the rest of our stock over the comings weeks and months.

We have tried to keep the online payment system as simple and user-friendly as possible. But we stress – SHOPPING ONLINE IS NOT MANDATORY! Buying pictures often requires conversation; questions on condition, attribution, dating, quality, etc. are all encouraged. Please do not hesitate to contact us about any work on this site. The digital side of Abbott and Holder must continue to develop. But we are a Gallery first and foremost, and want to remain so. Nothing can replace visiting 30 Museum Street and seeing a work ‘in the flesh’ and we are always happy to make reservations to enable you to do so.



WWII SOE Agent and then Vogue Fashion Illustrator


In place of a PART II to this List, we will be releasing a large group of fashion drawings by Brian Stonehouse. Made in New York from the 1940s to the 1970s, this will be a comprehensive range of his work.

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. Please call if you would prefer to talk to us about anything you see on the website, but we strongly advise sending an email first; we are happy to hold works for a short time while they are being considered, or to give time to make a vist.

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.
