As we are settling into the neighborhood of Avery Row, we have

been discovering some wonderful secrets in our grown up Central

London residence. There are so many established and old-fashioned

places to visit in Mayfair, from the Conde Nast building which houses

Vogue, to places like the Mitchell Gallery that has been running for generations.


MARK MITCHELL

Paintings & Drawings

Dealers in 19th-20th Century British & Continental Works of Art

MARK MITCHELL Paintings & Drawings is a trading division

of

Paul Mitchell Ltd., specialists in Antique & Reproduction Picture

Frames and Conservation & Restoration of Paintings.

 

Having explored the art market over several years Mark is

fulfilling his ambition to expand the picture-dealing side of

his father’s business.  He has assembled a rich and varied

collection of British and Continental oil paintings, watercolours

and drawings from the 17th-20th centuries, as well as

contemporary works.  These comprise landscapes, seascapes,

interiors, figure, animal and still life paintings.

 

Mark is one of the third generation of the Mitchell family of

fine art dealers, founded by his grandfather John Mitchell

in 1930, whose Bond Street gallery is run by Mark’s uncle

Peter and cousins James and William.

December 1st,

a perfectly snowy start to the Christmas season.

We had a party!


We love a good party, this one was to introduce our friends and family to our beautiful new shop.   Having fretted that nobody would come, we had 148 signatures in our visitors book of the bravest of the brave, intrepid in the extreme on the coldest night of the year so far.   The snow fell beautifully in tiny crisp granules as if for effect not wetting nor settling.

Thank you all those who came, we had such a happy time.

Delicious canapes provided by our dear Ross Jordan, exquisite roast beef, smoked salmon and the dearest little chocolate Christmas puddings. Tony and Sarah Palmer provided the best roast chestnuts I have ever eaten perfect little warm bags to thaw frozen fingers (s.jpalmer81@yahoo.com). Going home presents were handkerchiefs printed with a 1954 map of London highlighting CABBAGES & ROSES growing chain of shops.

We now have three!!

Visit us at our newest addition to the Cabbages family
