Colnaghi

Fine art dealership Colnaghi dates back to 1783 when Paul Colnaghi took over the London branch of the print and engravings business he ran with Anthony Torre.

Over the next two centuries, the firm became one of the world’s leading dealings in Old Master paintings and drawings. In 2002, the business was acquired by the fourth-generation German dealer Konrad Bernheimer before the firm merged with fellow dealers Coll & Cortés in 2015. The dealers moved to a new gallery in Bury Street in 2016.
