History of Waterhouse & Dodd
Ray Waterhouse and Jonathan Dodd started working together in 1982 and formed Waterhouse & Dodd five years later. In 1989 they opened a first-floor gallery in Bond Street and in 2001 moved nearby to 26 Cork Street. Their gallery at Cork Street is now dedicated to a program of modern british and contemporary art exhibitions, whilst their Impressionist and Modern art has relocated to new premises at 16 Savile Row.
Waterhouse & Dodd are also proud to announce the opening of two galleries outside the UK in 2011. Our Madison Avenue gallery, exhibits international contemporary art, which is run by Tim Strazza and we have a new director starting next month. We also have a private gallery for Impressionist and Modern Art on the Upper East Side. This is also the US base for our art advisory services, and is at 50, East 72nd Street. It is an ideal place to view and discuss art and our director Ray Waterhouse is based here.
For more than 25 years Waterhouse and Dodd have dealt in paintings from the late 19th and 20th centuries, combining great paintings by both major and minor artists. During the 1990s they increasingly offered professional advice to collectors, a service that became formalised into one of the most respected art advisory services in the world, Fine Art Brokers. In 2008 they curated ArtRoutes, a major show of contemporary Middle Eastern and Arab Art that was the first in a series of such annual exhibitions.
As well as publishing up to ten catalogues a year, their newsletter The Fine Art File is now up to issue 39.
