London was the birthplace of Marlborough Fine Art in 1946, and today there are Marlborough galleries in Barcelona, Madrid, Monte Carlo, Santiago de Chile, and two in New York. The gallery has nurtured some of the most important names in recent art history, such as Oskar Kokoschka, Kurt Schwitters, Francis Bacon, Frank Auerbach and Paula Rego.
Marlborough Contemporary, the latest addition to the Marlborough group of galleries, opened in October 2012 with an an entirely new roster of artists, brought together by Professor Andrew Renton. Formerly Director of Curating at Goldsmiths, London, Renton has published and curated widely in the field, and has many years’ experience of building some of the most significant collections of contemporary art in Europe.
With a commitment to working with cutting-edge art of the twenty-first century, Marlborough Contemporary will complement Marlborough Fine Art’s expertise in nineteenth and twentieth-century Masters.
