Halcyon Gallery was established in 1982, specialising in modern and contemporary art. Based in New Bond Street, Mayfair, the gallery represents an exciting selection of renowned international artists. In its London and Shanghai locations it hosts a diverse programme of established artists and new emerging talent.
From its inception, Halcyon Gallery has championed painters and sculptors who display exceptional promise, technical skill and intrinsic creativity. As well as representing contemporary artists, the gallery specialises in rare masterpieces by the most acclaimed nineteenth- and twentieth-century masters, ranging from Impressionism to Pop Art. It helps clients in building diverse collections of the highest quality and rarity with emotional resonance and impeccable provenances. Halcyon Gallery also plays a leading role in placing public art in high-profile locations in cities and development areas around the world.
Philanthropy is an integral part of the gallery’s mission. The installation of Simon Gudgeon’s Serenity sculpture in 2008 on the banks of the Serpentine in Hyde Park, London, has raised nearly £3 million for The Royal Parks Foundation’s Education Centre. Three years earlier, the gallery donated Lorenzo Quinn’s sculpture The Tree of Life to the city of Birmingham to commemorate those who died in the Second World War blitz on the city. As part of its assertion of the life-enhancing quality of art, the gallery supports various charities, including The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award World Fellowship, a scheme that helps young people throughout the globe in health, education and welfare.
Over a quarter-century after its formation, Halcyon Gallery’s present mission is one of reputation, legacy and excellence. It has become a destination for art collectors and the public as a centre of activities, display and education for the great artists and art it represents.
