  • Newsletter – November

    Despite the fog and the rain we have had a very pleasant Autumn, but now the nights are drawing in and the lights are cheering up our streets as we edge towards Winter and the joy of Christmas festivities.
    Not to forget our friends across the pond, November brings Thanks Giving. So for all our American clients we wish you a most enjoyable holiday.

    Any minute now the Pimlico Road and the converging streets will be bedecked with Christmas lights and wonderful illuminated Christmas trees on all the lamp posts. The large plane trees on Orange Square will sparkle with suspended lights and The Pimlico Road will enter into the spirit of Christmas.

    This all leads up to the fun of The Belgravia Christmas Weekend taking place on the 5th and 6th of December. The Pimlico Road event takes place on the Saturday from 10am to 4pm.Elizabeth Street on the Sunday.

    Our wonderful Farmers Market will be getting an extension for one day only to 3pm so do come and place your Christmas orders. We will have musicians, a juggler and a balloon artist to entertain children of all ages. Apart from all the delicious food in the market we will be giving out hot chestnuts, and the various eateries in the area will be serving special Christmas fare. All the shops and galleries will be participating with new products and special gifts appropriate to the season.

    There are always delightful Christmas windows to tempt you in. Lovely Christmas decorations can be bought from Daylesford, Linley, Nicholas Haslam and Joanna Wood. Perfect smaller gifts from amongst others The Biggest Blanket Company, FBC London, Talisman, Gordon Watson and Potterton Books in Lower Sloane Street.

    Linley in conjunction with House and Garden Magazine are holding an evening of wine tasting and late night shopping. Tickets are £45 and can be purchased through House and Garden, see the December magazine for details. Do make every effort to be part of the festive celebrations. Come and join us.

    We will soon have a dedicated page for the on-going discussion of the Newsons Yard/Travis Perkins development and the affect this will have on the existing Pimlico Road shops. Keep an eye on the website for further updates.

    All our members wish all our clients, old and new, a most enjoyable run up to the delights of Christmas and the New Year.

    Enjoy yourselves.

    Regards and best wishes.

  • John Adams Fine Art 25th Anniversary Exhibition

    10th November – 23rd December 2015

    We are delighted to have spent 25 years at our current location in Ebury Street. Much has changed over the years but essentially the area retains its village atmosphere with unique and original shops and galleries. One charming addition during that period is the placing of a statue of Mozart as a child opposite the Gallery to commemorate his stay with his family nearby during 1764 – 65.

    Claude Venard, 'Le Quai' 300dpiIn 1990 our first exhibition was dedicated to Women in Art and we specialised in those days in late 18th Century and 19th Century paintings. Over the years we have received diverse celebrities at John Adams Fine Art, from the Queen to many actors, actresses, entertainers and politicians. We have had various successful contemporary exhibitions as well, with artists representing a full spectrum of ideas and artistic vision, which in many ways has reflected the evolution of taste and design. As many of our faithful clients will know we have been specialising in 20th Century French art for the last decade which has happily meant that frequent trips to Paris were necessary. We were fortunate to discover the work of Othello Radou (1910 2006) on one of these visits in 2006, and have exclusively represented the Art since 2008. A few years later we similarly discovered the idiosyncratic abstract paintings of Denise Mannoni (1918 – 2003), and now solely represent her Estate. The Gallery also displays artworks by other prominent French artists such as Claude Venard, Jean Hugo and André Brasilier.

    Our first twenty five years at Ebury Street have been one long adventure of discovery, fun and hard work, in a rapidly changing art market and world, and we cannot imagine another occupation which would provide beauty, knowledge and constant challenges, that owning and running an art gallery provides.

    We hope you will enjoy the 25th Anniversary Exhibition which opens on 10th November and runs until 23rd December 2015.
