Haynes Fine Art Gallery
Passion for the arts
Set in Pimlico road, London’s premier design district, Haynes Fine Art has been a long-time resident. Born to extremely humble beginnings, Tony Haynes was self-educated, always preferring to escape into the world of art for sanctuary. The love of the discipline was down to his son, Tony Jr who continued the tradition. Today, they are the largest provincial fine art dealer in the UK of quality 19th to 21st century paintings, outside of London.
