Grosvenor Gallery was first established by the American sociologist and writer Eric Estorick (1913-1993). who moved to England in 1947. In the initial years, he and his wife developed a major collection of Italian art. It was then that Estorick became a full time art dealer and went on to establish the Grosvenor Gallery in 1960, with its first premise on Davies Street. It was the largest and best equipped gallery in England at the time.
In 2006, Grosvenor Gallery collaborated with Vadehra Art Gallery in New Delhi to form Grosvenor Vadehra. The purpose of this collaboration was to promote international art in India and Indian art in the UK. In this guise it has held international exhibitions in India including a Pablo Picasso exhibition in 2006 and an exhibition of Lucien Freud and Francis Bacon along with Tyeb Mehta and Francis Newton Souza in 2007. Since then the Gallery has continued to exhibit modern and contemporary South Asian art, predominantly the work of mid-20th century Indian modernists such as the Bombay Progressives, as well as Chughtai, Gulgee and Sadequain from Pakistan. Our contemporary program includes exhibitions of work by Rasheed Araeen, Faiza Butt, Olivia Fraser and Dhruva Mistry amongst others.
