The Baillie Gallery was founded by New Zealand artist, John Denzil Baillie (1868-1926) who was a member of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and exhibited with them in 1891 and he was also Secretary of the Wellington Art Club. In 1897 he came to England to study art in London and opened his gallery around 1900 and in 1901, the artist Frances Hodgkins noted that he was an art dealer in Bayswater, and her work was included in a show at his gallery the following year and in 1904 it was noted that 'Mr. Baillie’s gallery in Prince’s Terrace, Bayswater… is just a private house, where from time to time small and interesting shows are held. In 'The Year’s Art' 1907s review of “other London Exhibitions open in 1906,” the Baillie Gallery is listed at 54 Baker Street, suggesting that the business had moved premises either late in 1905 or in 1906. In mid-1908, Baillie moved again, this time to 13 Bruton Street, the former home of the Bruton Gallery and was one of the most popular exhibition spaces in London. The Gallery seems to have closed around the time of the First World War, but the publication 'The Year’s Art' did feature an advert for the gallery in 1916.
