The Storran Gallery, London





London, London


Art Gallery / Dealer / Auction House (Seller)


The Storran Gallery was an avant-garde art gallery in London in the 1930s selling works of masters and exhibiting his own well-regarded paintings. In 1937 it was run by the prominent art critic Eardley Knollys (a friend of Picasso) with Alan Storey and the artist Frank Coombs. The gallery was at 106 Brompton Road, London SW3 (just opposite Harrods) but moved to Fitzroy Street and then 316 Euston Road.

An unusual exhibition at the gallery in 1938 was ‘‘The Jones Exhibition’’. The artists Graham Bell and Tom Harrisson curated an exhibition of London scenes by British painters. As a way of making it "democratic", they typed letters to invite over 800 London-based families with the widely held name Jones.

Pictures exhibited at the Storran Gallery in the late 1930s included those by Picasso, Modigliani, Dufy, Anthony Devas, Claude Rogers, Victor Pasmore, Rupert Shephard, Graham Bell, William Coldstream, Ivon Hitchens, Jean Varda, Derek Sayer, Lynton Lamb, Joan Souter-Robinson, Ivy Langton and Derek Latymer-Sayer. A number of these artists were members of the Euston Road School.
