Founded in 2012, Richard Saltoun Gallery is based in Mayfair, London. The gallery specialises in contemporary art, with an emphasis on Feminist, Conceptual and Performance artists from the 1960s onwards. It is guided by a strong focus on rediscovering the work of important yet under-recognised artists through a yearly exhibition programme at its central location on Dover Street and participation in numerous art fairs around the world.
Active on both the primary and secondary market, Richard Saltoun Gallery has established a leading reputation for promoting and exhibiting the work of female artists, including Eleanor Antin, Renate Bertlmann, Lili Dujourie, Bice Lazzari, Gina Pane, Greta Schödl and Penny Slinger, amongst others.
Additionally, the gallery supports and exhibits artists who have contributed to the fields of conceptual and performance art, including Victor Burgin, Thomas De Falco, Rose English, John Hilliard, Dom Sylvester Houédard, Bob Law, Gustavo Pérez Monzón, Annegret Soltau, ULAY, Edgardo Antonio Vigo, Marie Yates and more. Until recently, many of these innovative and experimental artists were forgotten or neglected by the broader international art world.
Richard Saltoun Gallery is also dedicated to preserving the legacy of artists through its representation of artist estates, including Helen Chadwick, David Hall, Nigel Henderson, Bob Law, Tony Morgan, Marinella Pirelli, Jo Spence and Shelagh Wakely.
The gallery acts as a consultant to major museums and public institutions and advises private and corporate collections. It actively documents the work of its artists through the production of publications and frequently stages talks, screenings and performances.
