The main focus is on Sporting Art Paintings, Maritime Art, Wildlife Art and Topographical works. These areas were at the core of English taste up until the world wars, and still continue to fascinate collectors around the world.
'For anyone interested in animals in art, the Tryon Gallery has become an essential port of call. For fifty years it has been encouraging artists and attracting the attention of enthusiastic collectors.
I am very pleased to have this opportunity to pay a tribute to what has become a National Institution, and to wish it continued success in the future.'
H.R.H. Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
This wonderful endorsement for the Tryon Gallery was for its 50th anniversary in 2009, and in this time it has established itself as one of the leading dealers in the field of Sporting Art and Wildlife Art. Rountree Fine Art was started by Mr Rountree in 2009 after a 10 year career at the auction houses Christies and Bonhams. This successful firm is one of the few in Europe that specialises primarily in Sporting and Maritime paintings dating from the 18th Century through to the Second World War, and initially made its mark with an attractive gallery in the heart of Chelsea.
With their common interests and a shared vision, these two galleries combined their talents under one roof in May 2013, and under the new name of Rountree Tryon Galleries. They continue to offer the very best of traditional and contemporary Sporting and Maritime Art from the St James's Gallery at 7 Bury Street, and in doing so have cemented their position as market leaders in these categories.
Incorporated within the Rountree Tryon umbrella are the Malcolm Innes Gallery Ltd (from 2000), the Moorland Gallery (from 1972) and the Royal Exchange Art Gallery (from 1995).
