Established in 1983, Driffold Gallery is now one of the best known art dealers and consultants in the country. The gallery occupies the whole of 'The Smithy,' a grade 2 listed building of deceptive size adjacent to Sutton town centre. The NEC, the City Centre, the M5, M6 and M42 are within fifteen minutes drive and there is parking on site.
Director David Gilbert was arts columnist for 'Select' and 'The Journal' magazines and a consultant editor for 'Miller's Picture Price Guides'. He believes the gallery's success is due to the expansive range of subjects and styles, with good examples of Victorian, Impressionist and Modern favourites being passed on at realistic 3, 4 and 5 figure values.
All pictures are firmly vetted to good London and Universal standards. The gallery has also gained a reputation for pictures that have remained in lovely unspoiled condition, and a comprehensive guarantee is standard.
Most pictures come direct from previous owners or artists' studios and have not been shown elsewhere. Over 250 choice original works, changing continually.
The gallery is always looking for unspoiled and unshown examples of valued artists. Please make contact if you have something to offer.
