Hunt, who has been a dealer for 35 years, had operated from 58 and 60 Lower Sloane Street.
However, following a redevelopment of the building by the landlord, he has relocated opposite to 69 Lower Sloane Street which he has leased and redeveloped to house the auction business, named Sloane Street Auctions.
The first sale is planned for February 24 offering fine art and antiques including French 18th century furniture, English 18th century silver, Old Master pictures, objet d’art and antiquities.
The items are from a number of consignors including US col lectors and private properties in Knightsbridge and Chelsea, as well as items from the Condylis collection (the collection of a Greek shipping family).
This is followed by another fine art and antiques sale on April 12, a photography sale on May 17 and Contemporary and Modern art on July 1.
Sloane Street Auctions comprises a team of six fulltime staff and “dozens of consultants”.
The auctions will be held at Wren House at the Royal Hospital Chelsea with viewings at 69 Lower Sloane Street.
The live auction will also be streamed online via selling platforms including thesaleroom.com (owned by ATG’s parent company).
