Colnaghi opens new 4,000 square foot gallery in London
Anonymous, Parruccone, XVII Century. Terracotta, 85 x 54 x 30 cm.

LONDON.- Colnaghi announced the opening of their new gallery in London in October 2016, during Frieze Week.

A Century after the 256–year old firm Colnaghi moved from Pall Mall to Mayfair, they have returned to St. James’s where their new home is a 4,000 sq. ft. gallery in Bury Street. At Bury Street Colnaghi look forward to presenting Master paintings and sculptures in a fresh context, reimagined for the 21st century audience. The Crown Estates building has been carefully remodelled with bespoke design and interiors by Colnaghi´s Creative Director Diego Fortunato.

The new gallery enjoys several exhibition areas and a large ground-level window, with the company’s celebrated and treasured library creating a focal point in the basement of the building’s central atrium, holding almost 10,000 volumes of reference books and catalogues dating back to the 18th century. This illustrious Colnaghi library is carefully arranged around a stunning monochrome marble fl oor, and reached by a Kubrickian white stairwell, juxtaposing a futuristic feel with an appreciation of the historical importance of the gallery’s heritage and its important collection of art books which refl ect the emphasis placed on art scholarship.

Jorge Coll, CEO of Colnaghi commented: “We are thrilled to be starting an exciting new chapter in the Colnaghi story with the opening of our gallery in Bury Street. The space has been designed and built as an exciting destination where we can present paintings and sculptures with a fresh approach, in a context suited to the 21st century, and where the library and art scholarship remain at the very centre of what we do. From this new home we’re looking forward to celebrating great art with a contemporary perspective, and continuing Colnaghi’s long and illustrious history of placing works of art in great museum and private collections.
