The Redfern Gallery (established 1923) is an art gallery specialising in contemporary British art. The gallery was founded by Arthur Knyvett-Lee and Anthony Maxtone Graham on the top floor of Redfern House, 27 Old Bond Street, London, as an artists' cooperative. In 1936 the gallery moved to 20 Cork Street, London.[1]

Early exhibitions[edit]

In 1924 the gallery displayed the student work of Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, and in 1929, the first exhibition of British linocuts featuring work by Cyril Edward Power, Sybil Andrews, and Claude Flight.[1]

Recent exhibitions[edit]

From late December, through the first few months of 2016, the gallery exhibited "recent paintings" of "Sarah Armstrong-Jones", who is also known as Lady Sarah Chatto, the daughter of the late Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon and Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon.[2]

In early 2014, the gallery held a retrospective of British pop art artist Brian Rice.[3]
