Founded London 1970

Private Adviser in Impressionist & 20th Century Art


I worked as an expert in Sotheby's Impressionist & 20th Century department before becoming an independent art adviser in 1970.

During the past forty years, I have concentrated on Impressionist and 20th Century art – advising private clients on acquisition, sale, valuation, conservation, research and framing. And the loan of works to prestigious museums and exhibitions.

I work with artists’ and collectors’ estates including the Rouault Foundation; the Paul Alexandre collection of Modigliani paintings and drawings; and the Albert Houthuesen Trust. And have arranged many exhibitions including one-man shows of Bonnard, Modigliani, Rouault and Sisley.

As indicated in the section below of ‘Handled Works’, I also advise on the sale of exceptional works and collections in other fields.  [See: Constable, Turner, Samuel Palmer, whose masterpiece The Shearers is now hanging, on loan, in the Metropolitan Museum, New York. Also the unique collection of 139 Kimonos from the Montgomery Collection of Japanese Folk Art].




Modigliani Exhibition

Richard Nathanson is co-curator of the exhibition Modigliani: A Unique Artistic Voice
at the Estorick Museum, London - the only UK museum dedicated to 20th century Italian art.

The works, dating from 1906 to 1919, show Modigliani's progress towards and realisation of his unique portrayal of the human face and form.  And the crucial role the Russian poet
 Anna Akhmatova played in his art.

The exhibition opens 15th April - 28th June 2015.

I suspect that Houthuesen will come to be seen as one of the great figures in post-World War 11 Western Art.
