1945 - ?

This Cork Street gallery was founded in 1945 by Henry Heinz Roland, Lillian Browse and Gustav Delbanco, and tended to specialise in Expressionist-style figurative paintings and traded under the name of Roland, Browse & Delbanco, one of the most famous names in British post-war art dealing. Gradually the refugee partners died, Roland in 1993 and Delanco in 1997 but had both retired earlier. In 1977 Lilian Browse had gone into partnership with William Darby when the gallery re-opened as Browse & Darby in the same Cork Street premises and Lilian Browse remained a director until 1981. Lilian Browse died in 2005, aged 99, but the gallery still trades as Browse & Darby. Amongst the lengthy list of artists whom the gallery helped to establish were Bernard Dunstan, Henryk Gotlib, Zdzislaw Ruskowski, Josef Herman, Keith Grant, Prunella Clough, Brian Selway, Phillip Sutton and Anthony Whishaw.
