Antique Oil Paintings

Oil painting has a long and illustrious history, with the process, which involves suspending coloured pigments in the medium of an oil, becoming popular throughout Europe during the fifteenth century with Netherlandish artists like Jan van Eyck and Robert Campin. When most people think of painting, whether of works from the Renaissance, the Baroque, the Neoclassical, or the Impressionist periods, they visualise oil painting, with its grand scale and brilliantly vibrant colours.

Mayfair Gallery’s extensive collection of antique oil paintings includes examples from around Europe and the wider world- from England to France to Russia- and contains works of all sizes, from large and impressive canvases to more intimate paintings on wood panels or copper.
