Lindsay Fine Art Ltd was formed in 1990 to deal in European Old Master Paintings (15th-19th C.) and that remains its core business to this day. Although we are interested in paintings from all the major schools of Old Master painting, 95% of all paintings offered or shown to Lindsay Fine Art Ltds are rejected on grounds of attribution, condition or price. Each painting that we buy or sell as agent has to satisfy a strict series of criteria which have been fine tuned over the last 17 years.

The art world today is a confusing place. Most of the great works of art are already in museums or private collections, which means that much of the art that comes up for sale is of a lesser quality. Occasionally, however, the opportunity to acquire an important painting at auction or privately will arise. Constant vigilance is therefore required, both at the major auction rooms in London or New York and at smaller sales in America and Europe.

The Art of Discernment

A Collector’s Profile

As a collector, you may already have clearly defined tastes. However, if you are new to the art world, Lindsay Fine Art Ltd can arrange informative tour of a museum or gallery to see what you like. You may be drawn to a particular period or you may wish to own works of art from all the major schools of painting. You may wish to purchase works which are in vogue, or you may wish to buy against the trend.

A small selection of our stock is illustrated on this page.
