History of Waterhouse & Dodd
Ray Waterhouse and Jonathan Dodd started working together as art dealers in1982 and they formed Waterhouse & Dodd five years later. After 27 years of international dealing Waterhouse & Dodd has four galleries, two in both London and New York, and an office in Paris.
In London we opened our impressive new ground floor gallery on 47 Albemarle Street in Mayfair in 2013. This new space is dedicated to exhibiting and dealing in Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary art. We also have works on view at our second gallery space in London at 16 Savile Row, but this 2nd floor space is dedicated more to client advisory services. Jonathan Dodd runs the London team that comprises three experts and two experienced gallery administrators.
Waterhouse & Dodd opened a gallery in New York in 2010, and have now expanded to have two galleries on the Upper East Side. The new Madison Avenue gallery between 75th and 76th Streets is on the 2nd floor, and like its London counterpart exhibits Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary art but also shows American Post-War art. We also have a private gallery for Impressionist and Modern Art at 15, East 76th Street. This is also the US base for Fine Art Brokers, our art advisory service. Ray Waterhouse has relocated to New York and runs these two galleries with the help of two specialists, a gallery manager and an assistant.
Waterhouse & Dodd has mounted some major exhibitions in their galleries, from Impressionist paintings to Contemporary European, American and also Middle Eastern and Arab art, and exhibit at some of the most important art fairs in the world, including TEFAF in Maastricht. As well as publishing various exhibition catalogues each year, our newsletter The Fine Art File is now up to issue 40.
During the 1990s we became more involved in offering professional advice to collectors, a service that has become one of the most respected art advisory services in the world, Fine Art Brokers.
