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.
Paintings & Drawings
Dealers in 19th-20th Century British & Continental Works of Art
MARK MITCHELL Paintings & Drawings is a trading division
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.
We will keep you posted on some of the other places worth a visit as soon as we find them.

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 (email@example.com). Going home presents were handkerchiefs printed with a 1954 map of London highlighting CABBAGES & ROSES growing chain of shops.
