John Spink, based in West London, has long been known for dealing in important and fine quality watercolours from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Being a Spink and the son of Marshall Spink the renowned art expert and dealer, he was surrounded from a very young age by great English and European Masters. From this background he started dealing in Watercolours in the early 1970's from his fathers gallery in Albemarle Street in the West End. Since those early days he has accumulated over forty years of knowledge and experience in English pictures. The family business Spink and Son was founded in 1666 when another John Spink created what is now one of the oldest surviving antique businesses in the world.
He has curated a number of important exhibitions of English Watercolours including amongst others, Francis Towne, and his Friends, John Varley (1778-1842) and more recently in 2013 William Payne (1760-1830) 'Topographer and Artist of the Picturesque . All three of these exhibitions were accompanied by a fully illustrated hardback book. These catalogues have become reference books in their own right.. A few copies of these beautiful books still remain in stock and are available through this website.
