Johnny started his career in the PR and Stamp Departments at Christie’s, where he realized his affinity with Dutch Old Masters; a nod to his ancestry perhaps.
In 1977, Johnny and his wife Sarah opened the gallery, specializing in Dutch and Flemish Old Master Paintings of the 16th and 17th centuries – the only gallery in London dealing exclusively in this field.
For nearly forty years, Johnny has been a key figure in the Art World. The gallery’s inventory includes magnificent works by artists such as Gerard Ter Borch, Salomon van Ruisdael and Jan Steen. His current roles include Trustee of the Dulwich Picture Gallery and Trustee of the Dutch Masters Association.
