James Ashcroft founded Ashcroft Art after spending a number of years working in London’s West End art scene. We are passionate about art but equally as passionate about our clients and providing them with a 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.
Importantly what separates us from other dealers and galleries is that the brief comes from the client in terms of search and sourcing criteria, and direct relationships to artists and collectors are used to meet that brief.
James will regularly purchase art on behalf of clients, either privately or through auction; take care of framing; and often will deliver and hang in person. This ensures there is only one point of contact and the client is taken care of throughout the often complicated art purchasing process.
