About Us

James Ashcroft founded Ashcroft Art after spending a number of years working in London’s West End art scene. Passionate about art but equally passionate about our clients, we provide an art sourcing and collection building service that far exceeds expectations.

We work with a broad spectrum of living contemporary artists, as well as secondary market master works and graphics. Though we have assisted in curating a number of London shows and exhibit at International art fairs, we took the active decision not to open a brick and mortar gallery in order not to incur London’s costly overheads, that saving can then be passed direct to the client. As a result of this approach we have managed to procure and sell a vast amount of art work, at significantly less than market value.

We have worked closely with Terry O’Neill – recently awarded a CBE – for many years. We have placed hundreds of O’Neill’s photographs in major collections around the world, from Sydney to Delhi and London, and his work is continuing to grow in popularity as the pictures captivate viewers.

James has known David Yarrow for a number of years, and in 2018 travelled with him to Moscow for his exhibition in the world famous Multimedia Art Museum. Yarrow has a way of immersing himself with his subjects and capturing an intimacy that few photographers manage to do. From his early works in Africa and India to his recent projects with Cara Delevingne and Pamela Anderson, we love working with David and are fortunate to have access to this wonderful catalogue of work.

Importantly what separates us from other dealers and galleries is that the brief comes from the client in terms of search and art sourcing criteria, and direct relationships to artists and collectors are used to meet that brief.

We have placed hundreds of O'Neill's photography in major collections around the world, from Sydney to Delhi and London, and the work continues to grow in popularity as this national treasure's work continues to captivate viewers.

Private Commissions

We have undertaken a wide spectrum of commissions from personal client pieces to corporate environments. As always we work very closely with the client to fulfill their brief. Commissions are either fulfilled through working with a specific artist to fulfill a request, or by working with the space and the type of art that would be most suited to the space.

The world of commissions and corporate art can be difficult to navigate and we try to make the process as smooth, hassle free, fun and rewarding as possible.

If you would like to speak with us about a private commission, we would be happy to help, please contact us.
