The Leeds-based dealership’s St. James’s gallery is located at 67 Jermyn Street and will open during London Art Week (June 30-July 7). The opening is to be marked by an exhibition titled Canova and his Legacy.

Gallery director Dino Tomasso said that the gallery is “committed to being part of the rich and vibrant art scene in the heart of this historic area of central London”.

The business was forced to vacate its previous premises on Duke Street when the lease expired and was not renewed earlier this year.

Dino has also been appointed to the board of London Art Week and says of the new gallery’s inaugural exhibition: “Canova was a revolutionary force in the field of sculpture. Throughout the Neoclassical period his workshop represented the focal point of sculptural studies in Europe and for generations of marble carvers to come.”
