Eight Incredible Art Galleries in and Around Knightsbridge

08 May 18

Knightsbridge may be synonymous with affluence, but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking artistic flare. Here are our pick of the must-see galleries in and around the Knightsbridge neighbourhood.

 

Saatchi Gallery

If you’re looking to stay ahead of the curve on the contemporary art scene, or want to catch a glimpse of what might be the next Damien Hurst, the Saachi Gallery’s 70,000-square-foot space on the King’s Road is always worth a visit given its reputation as a springboard for aspiring young artists hoping to break into the industry.

Everard Read London

If your artistic tastes lie even further afield, look no further than the London base of Africa’s oldest commercial art gallery, Everard Read. Nestled in the heart of Chelsea on the Fulham Road, it showcases some of the most distinctive modern and contemporary artworks from South Africa and around the world.

 

Serpentine Galleries

Known for championing new ideas in modern art and with one of the most picturesque settings on this list, the Serpentine Galleries comprise three locations in the heart of Kensington Gardens: the main, original site within the former tea pavilion opened in 1970; the newer Serpentine Sackler Gallery, housed in a converted gunpowder store; and the Pavilion, which has an on-going schedule of temporary outdoor structures.

Andipa Gallery

A specialist dealer in classic art and modern masters from Picasso to Banksy, Lichtenstein to Hockney, the Andipa Gallery has been exhibiting its ever-changing inventory of paintings, drawings, sculpture and rare and unique signed prints within the heart of Knightsbridge since 1967, and as such is one of the most established commercial galleries in the city.

 

Purdy Hicks Gallery

Since moving from its East London location in 2016, the Purdy Hicks Gallery has become a favourite among Knightsbridge photography aficionados on the lookout for radical art that has a tendency to break popular preconceptions. With four to six exhibitions a year to enjoy, they are seldom disappointed.

Crane Kalman Gallery

A London fine art institution, the Crane Kalman Gallery has been showcasing the very best that modern art has to offer from its Brompton Road location for over six decades. Along with works by Lowry, Ben and Winifred Nicholson, Graham Sutherland and Mary Newcomb, it does a roaring trade in 20thcentury European and American art and sculpture.

 

12 Star Gallery

For art with a side of politics that has the ability to educate as well as inspire, look no further than 12 Star Gallery at Europe House. Each exhibit aims to showcase the creativity and cultural diversity of the European Union, and over the ten years since its inception, it has provided an intriguing mix of history, current affairs and forgotten voices.

 

Brownsword Hepworth

A highlight of the Knightsbridge art scene, the curated selection of Modernist painting, sculpture and eclectic art on display at Brownsword Hepworth’s Walton Street gallery will satisfy even the most discerning buyers, whose burgeoning collections will only benefit from the guidance of their team of specialist staff.
