Introducing St James's Art Books...
St. James’s Art Books opened in 1993 in Piccadilly Arcade as an art reference bookshop. Over the following years it gradually morphed into an art gallery: it was a natural evolution, started with trading in artist books, containing original graphics; from there it was a small step to framing those graphics, and of course we were helped by our strategic location in the middle of London’s Art Mile. As our situation and solidity progressed, we were able to pursue original works and graphics on the London and global art market, the research task greatly supported by our exhaustive reference library.
Nowadays the gallery deals mainly with modern graphics and with original works of the School of Paris and other artists of the early XXth century. Picasso, Matisse, Miro’ and Chagall are the permanent, dominating presences. We still have plenty of books on our shelves, but they are our own reference works, the treasured tools of our trade. On the other hand, graphics originating from artist books are still an important part of our offerings.
