Gallery Services


For over 30 years we have been delighted to offer advice to clients about building and maintaining collections, including purchases, framing and conservation. Chris Beetles has almost unrivalled specialised experience of the need, or not, to conserve and restore works on paper.


We are happy to offer valuations for insurance, sale and probate. Written valuations are charged at 2% + VAT of the valuation total or a minimum of £200 whichever is the greater.


We provide a full framing service and advice in both period and modern frames. We frame on the premises and offer advice and, mounting and framing within our usual range of styles.

Image Archive

We hold one of the largest image archives in the world. Over the past 30 years Chris Beetles has amassed a library of over 30,000 images recording the paintings that have passed through his hands. As the gallery deals significantly in British watercolours, oils and sculptures and is the world’s leading source for British illustrative art this is a considerable resource for picture licensing. Our Image Archive showcases this unique collection and displays all of its extensive genres available for reproduction. The national and international rights and access are handled by Bridgeman Art Library.
