Anthony Reynolds Gallery was established in a large space on the edge of the City of London in 1985. The gallery moved to the West End in 1990 and the current building in Great Marlborough Street was opened in 2002. The building has a unique character that reflects the singularity of our standpoint.
There are 23 artists represented exclusively by the gallery and works by over 250 artists have been presented in around 180 exhibitions over the past 20 years.
Anthony Reynolds Gallery is best known for the discovery of exceptional young artists and the development of their careers over the long term and we have also focussed on the work of true independents of all generations, in all media. We see our 'home' as a source, where individual artists and individual works can be discovered, investigated, nurtured and then placed. We work closely with major museums and non-commercial institutions in developing long-term critical appreciation of the work of our artists. The only guiding principles in selecting an artist have been an instinctive conviction about the importance or potential of their work and a perception that within their chosen field of endeavour they are leading the field. Thus there is no stylistic or generational thread running through the programme but strong elements of surprise, independence and aesthetic and intellectual stimulation. Many of the artists were first exhibited in this gallery and have since gone on to become major figures in the international arena.
