Jonathan Dodd has nearly 40 years’ experience in the London art market. He took a Master of Arts Degree in Law and History of Art at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, specialising in British and French 19th century paintings. He joined the leading London print dealers Baynton Williams after graduating, leaving in 1982 to work with Ray Waterhouse at Galerie George and to run the second gallery. Five years later they formed Waterhouse & Dodd. While the running of the business is very much a partnership, Jonathan takes the major responsibility for the London galleries, for the buying and selling of paintings there, and our participation at various art fairs in Europe and the USA. He travels regularly in Europe looking for paintings, and especially France that he visits most months, and retains a network of contacts there and throughout the USA.


Jonathan is married to a writer and picture framer who recently founded Canford & Co, London.
