About Us

History of waterhouse & dodd 




Ray Waterhouse and Jonathan Dodd started working together as art dealers in 1982 and they formed Waterhouse & Dodd five years later. After 30 years of international dealing Waterhouse & Dodd has galleries in both London and New York, and an office in Paris.


In September 2020 we relocated to 16 Savile Row. This space is dedicated to exhibiting and dealing in Post-Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary art managed by Jonathan Dodd. The 2nd Floor gallery space is perfectly suited to presentations and private brokering.


Waterhouse & Dodd opened a gallery in New York in 2010, and is now based on the Upper East Side at 15, East 76th Street where we have a gallery exhibiting Modern, Post-War and Contemporary Art. Ray Waterhouse has relocated to New York and manages this private dealing space with the support of Sandra Safta Waterhouse running the Modern and Contemporary department and Paul Carney as gallery manager.


This is also the US base for Fine Art Brokers, our art advisory service.


Waterhouse & Dodd has mounted some major exhibitions in its galleries, from Impressionist paintings to Contemporary European, American and also Middle Eastern and Arab art, and exhibits at some of the most important art fairs in the world. As well as publishing various exhibition catalogues each year, our newsletter The Fine Art File is now up to issue 41.


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.
