The Equine Art Gallery

The Osborne Studio Gallery in the center of London has fast become recognized as the world’s leading platform for Contemporary Equestrian Art and Lifestyle. Alongside the gallery’s recognized niche they handle the works of many respected landscape and figurative painters.

The gallery director, Geoffrey Hughes, is a recognized figure in the world of arts art as well as being well known in racing circles. These mutual passions have formed the gallery’ s signature partnership of Art & Equine. He understood that the gallery needed to develop a distinctive personality to make its mark as well as ensuring the quality of the work. Today, the Osborne Studio Gallery is recognized as the most important source of equestrian painting. 

The gallery’ s three most successful artists are consumed by horses and their love of horse racing, the racecourse’s atmosphere and the beauty of thoroughbreds in motion. Hubert de Watrigant, Katie O’ Sullivan and Mao Wen Biao are collected by the Royal Family, the Rothchilds, Niarchos and Wildenstein families, as well as Racing aficionados around the world. Hubert de Watrigant is the man behind the signature equine Hermès’ silk scarfs, and his annual exhibition of watercolors and oils are sell–outs.

A few years ago the gallery launched a film on the Chinese painter Mao Wen Biao. This short documentary, by director Arman Naji, features the artist’ s landmark large–scale murals at The Ritz, Holland Park, and Royal Automobile Club. 

The style of paintings which The Osborne Studio Gallery exhibits is representative of its clients’ interests in high–quality equestrian work. Whilst not sold as an investment these purchases very often become highly sought as these artists grow in international stature. Geoffrey Hughes, ever discreet, has won the confidence of serious collectors, owners, breeders of horses, leading businessmen, as well as lovers of original art, hoping to possess an evocative impression of a favorite place or situation. Geoffrey Hughes sells art that will stand the test of time.

The gallery has longstanding relationships, spanning over two decades with some of the world’ s leading racing clubs and collectors and has enjoyed the opportunity to exhibit their artwork at worldwide events. However, their fast-growing Middle Eastern, Chinese and Scandinavian clientele now have the additional ability to browse and purchase artwork from the comfort of their own home.

The gallery’s chic, minimal online platform allows collectors to view the collection as well as becoming updated on current equine events, news, and lifestyle.
