1968 - ?

New Grafton Gallery

The New Grafton Gallery was founded in 1968 by David Wolfers (1917-2001), a leading light in London's private gallery community, who promoted modern British figurative art from the start of his career as an art dealer. In the early 1980s the gallery moved to 49 Church Road, Barnes, London and from its beginnings in London's Mayfair, the New Grafton Gallery actively promoted a cross-section of British talent, which included the established names of Elisabeth Frink, Carel Weight, Mary Fedden, Ruskin Spear, Tom Coates, Peter Greenham, Keith Vaughan, and John Nash. The gallery has become a mecca for collectors and artists alike. David Wolfers remained at the helm until his death in 2001 and the gallery is now run by David's daughter, Claudia Wolfers. There was an unconnected earlier Grafton Galleries.
