Specialist online exhibitor’s inventory

Messum’s has a respected heritage as one of the country’s leading British art galleries, not only a pioneer in the field of British Impressionism and the Newlyn and St Ives Schools, but also a specialist in exhibiting contemporary British art.

Founded by David Messum in 1963, the London gallery has played a pivotal role in Cork Street’s long-standing reputation as a centre for the British art trade.

Messum’s offer Contemporary art exhibitions. With around a dozen exhibitions annually, the London gallery, Marlow studio with sculpture gardens and Wiltshire Barn provides a wide-ranging arts programme. Each event is supported by a fully-illustrated catalogue, as well as on-line exhibitions.
