Founded in 1946 in London, Marlborough is widely recognized as one of the world’s leading contemporary art galleries. Marlborough began as representatives for a new generation of post-war British artists, such as Henry Moore and Francis Bacon. The gallery quickly expanded its business to 19th century secondary market dealings in Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt, Signac, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Through the 1960s, Marlborough presented exhibitions of new work by Francis Bacon, Clyfford Still, Henry Moore, Jackson Pollock, David Smith and Egon Schiele. In 1969, Marlborough presented the era-defining exhibition of Phillip Guston’s first figurative paintings in New York.
During the 1970s and 1980s, Marlborough exhibited new work by Henry Moore, Francis Bacon, Frank Auerbach, Lynn Chadwick, Jacques Lipchitz, René Magritte, Lucian Freud, Barbara Hepworth and R.B. Kitaj. Exhibitions such as Kurt Schwitters in Exile and The Pressure to Paint are considered seminal 1980s shows. Through the 1990s, Marlborough worked directly with renowned international artists, including Magdalena Abakanowicz, Auerbach, Richard Estes, Antonio López-Garcia, Red Grooms, R.B. Kitaj and Paula Rego.
More recently, Marlborough’s program has highlighted historical shows and artist estates alongside leading contemporary artists.
