ABOUT US

Rowntree Clark are art dealers and advisors in 20th Century British Art.  We bring a genuine passion for the subject, with a strong art historical bias, combined with a knowledge of the market that can be invaluable to both the experienced and first time buyer. We provide our clients with the service of distinguishing the very best on the market. In turn, this has given us the pleasure of helping build some wonderful collections by brokering the sales of some of the great works by British artists in the 20th Century.​

Established in 2009 by Edward Clark, we are specialists in 20th Century British Art, with a particular interest in 1950s and early 1960s abstract gestural painting - specifically work from the late 1950s by artists such as Peter Lanyon, Robyn Denny, Sandra Blow, Roger Hilton, Gillian Ayres, Richard Smith, Harold CohenPatrick Heron, Paul Feiler, Bernard Cohen and William Scott.

 

Before establishing Rowntree Clark, Edward graduated from the Courtauld Institute of Art in 1998 and for 12 years worked for two leading West End dealers. We have had the experience of exhibiting at many of the major art fairs throughout the world - TEFAF, Armory Show New YorkBiennale Internazionale dell'Antiquariato di Firenze among others -  and have acted as an advisor for the Arts Council England among other roles. As Rowntree Clark we were a regular exhibitor at the British Art FairLondon Art Fair, LAPADA Art Antiques Art Antiques London.  

 

In 2014 we relocated from our St James's office to North Norfolk and now operate by appointment dividing our time between London and our showroom on the North Norfolk coast. After many years of acting purely as a consultant, we now have started to buy and sell selected works again, which are offered on this website under 'Works Available'.

AMLD COMPLIANT

Rowntree Clark is registered with HMRC for EU 5th Anti-Money Laundering Directive. We are required by law to carry out due diligence identity checks on customers before we work on any customer's behalf or conclude any transaction. We are also required to keep appropriate records of customers due diligence identification and of transactions.

ARR COMPLIANT

Rowntree Clark is obliged to charge ARR on all sales over €1,000. Artist’s Resale Right (ARR) entitles creators (‘authors’) of original works of art (including paintings, engravings, sculpture and ceramics) to a royalty each time one of their works is resold through an auction house or art market professional. The right to this royalty lasts for the same period as copyright, so since January 2012 ARR has applied to qualifying works by artists who have been dead for less than 70 years.
