Stair Sainty Gallery was founded in New York in 1982 by Guy Stair Sainty, an expert on 18th and 19th century French painting. Located at the heart of the international art market on Dover Street in Mayfair, London, we specialise in French, Italian and Spanish works of art from the 17th to the 20th Centuries. We maintain long-term relationships built on trust and connoisseurship with both private and institutional clients. We practice rigourous scholarship, and conduct our business with a discretion and thoroughness unavailable with the principle auction houses. We have sold paintings and sculptures to over fifty museums worldwide, and are a member of the Society of London Art Dealers, exhibiting annually at international art fairs including The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF), Maastricht.
