CURRENT EXHIBITION: Michael Honnor : 4 – 21 October 2022

‘Almost all my paintings begin life beside running water in the sun, wind and rain. Each time there’s the chance that all the old skills and expectations that I bring with me will be stung into life by the alchemy of what I find in the rough fragile landscape. This is the inexhaustible place.’

UPCOMING EXHIBITION: David Smith RSW : 1 – 18 November 2022

‘My subject matter is nature. Whether it is a contemporary landscape, seascape painting, a boat or a still life, I choose to work with traditional methods of oil and watercolour paints. I use my sketchbooks as a visual diary. Filling them with mainly charcoal or pastel drawings or whatever medium comes to hand getting down as many ideas, colours and detail as possible. I always find working outdoors lets me focus on capturing the subject in front of me immediately.’

Specialists in Contemporary Living British Artists since 1968

We are a contemporary London art gallery based in Kensington’s Thackeray Street, having built an international reputation over the last 50 years and beyond, for representing and promoting some of the most exciting British artists working today. Next to the delightful Kensington Square, we are a local hidden gem of eclectic, one off shops and restaurants. We have been in this location since the Gallery was founded in 1968 – a stunning space with a warm feel – and have become a local destination over the years.

Thackeray Gallery has been a Member of The Society of London Art Dealers since 1994 and LAPADA since 2017.


We are very happy to offer many additional services such as Art Consultancy, Valuations, Installations, Storage & Design advice on Bespoke Frames.  We offer a 'view it at home' service, where we can bring artworks you are interested in, to see it directly in situ.  We also offer, FaceTime and WhatsApp Video calls if you are not able to make it into the gallery.  These are easy to do, and can offer, surprisingly, the reassurance you need when considering buying a work of art.

We are also able to organise professional shipping artworks locally, and internationally, with a door to door service, bespokely crated for all works that travel out of the UK.  We work with several specialist shippers, so depending where you are based, we can always get the most competitive trade price for you.
