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].

Richard Nathanson exclusively represents the Houthuesen estate. And is preparing the artist’s catalogue raisonné. His recently published biography on Houthuesen is available from him.
To view Houthuesen’s work over sixty years and the BBC film on his life, click on www.houthuesen.com.
I suspect that Houthuesen will come to be seen as one of the great figures in post-World War 11 Western Art.
