Peter Nahum

Peter Nahum At The Leicester Galleries specialises in 19th and 20th century paintings, drawings and sculpture; in particular quality Victorian paintings, the Pre-Raphaelites, The Liverpool and Birmingham Schools including artists working in egg tempera, the New Sculpture and the European Symbolists.

The Leicester Galleries holds a wide variety of Modern British works including works by David Bomberg, Cecil Collins, Merlyn Evans, Terry Frost, Barbara Hepworth, Augustus John, Paul Nash, Ben Nicholson, Victor Pasmore, Michael Rothenstein and John Tunnard.

Also works by international artists including works by Julio González, Man Ray, Eugène Jansson, Eugene Carriere, Leon Frederic, Carlos Schawbe, Antonio Mancini and Jan Wynants.

Peter Nahum At The Leicester Galleries was formed in 1984 on the experience of seventeen years at Sotheby's. The gallery has a simple buying policy, based on two questions: Is the work good enough? and Can we afford it?

We also sell on behalf of private collectors.

The policy of the gallery is to buy top, museum quality works of art for what we consider to be, taking the market overall into consideration, a reasonable price. (The price we pay may be a world record for the artist). In general, this means that we buy against the market, over a wide range of dates and styles, but always looking for more than the merely decorative.

Since becoming a member of the Art and Antiques market in 1966, Peter Nahum has seen many recessions and subsequent booms. The one message that clearly comes through is that top quality artworks, bought at the right price, never let their owner down. The price will, of course, be effected by market changes but, unlike fashionable works bought at the top of a boom market, the prices of correctly purchased paintings do not suffer extreme downward swings.

The policy of this gallery is to buy for the long term and, if necessary, to hold our works of art for many years. In this respect we act like our collectors. We believe that works of art will retain and increase their values, as quality becomes rarer. From a collectors point of view, the greatest sin this gallery has perpetuated is to sell a good number of works to Museums and Art Galleries and therefore to remove them from their reach forever.
