Anthony Brown - Managing Director
Anthony Brown originally trained and qualified as a lawyer, studying first at Manchester University and then in London. Having practised for a short time with a leading London firm, his interest in fine art led him to the art world in 1982 and within only three years he had founded Connaught Brown in Mayfair.
Anthony takes great pride in the accessible nature and the friendly atmosphere of his gallery and is always happy to help his clients by not only advising on particular art works, but also developing their collections. He has built up a close rapport with his many clients over the years. They, in turn, are confident he will provide them with the very best works to suit their own particular taste and purse.
In his work as patron of the arts, Anthony has been a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and was the Chairman of the British Friends of the Art Museums of Israel. He has served on the executive committee of Friends of the Tate Gallery and continues to serve on the educational advisory committee of the Dulwich Art Gallery. He is also a member of the Society of London Art Dealers.
