LONDON.- Agnew’s, one of London’s leading
international art dealers, has appointed Sir Thomas Lighton as its new Chief
Executive and is moving to a gallery in Mayfair in the heart of the capital’s
art world.
These important changes herald the beginning of a new era
for the prestigious, long-established gallery which will see a gradual move
towards greater involvement in 20th century and contemporary art, whilst
continuing with its more traditional dealing in Old Master and British
paintings, drawings and watercolours.
