Our Gallery

The core focus of Art Curator Gallery is the acquisition and sale of Old Master Art for investment purposes. At the Art Curator Gallery, there is diversity in our art, which includes African old masters such as Pemba and Sekoto.

The superior quality of our art extends to our collection of Up and Coming artists such as G.P. Garizio, for those interested in ear-marking the next generation of old masters, as well as more contemporary artists such as Porchie, whose paintings have taken cosmopolitan Johannesburg by storm.

The Art Curator Gallery at its core is a family business that is extremely relationship oriented. Therefore to nurture our relationships we also deliver and hang paintings and evaluate art either in the gallery or on your property. We offer all the basic services of sales and framing as well as added information and advice about investment art, contemporary art, and interior design suggestions.

As a second generation gallery owner, Henry has discovered the needs of South African art buyers, and he caters to those needs. His expansive knowledge provides his clients with services that other galleries do not. Henry will personally assess homes and offices and offer professional decor advice. Also our relationships with our artists also allow us to negotiate commissions of art to the specifications of our clients.

At the Art Curator Gallery, we are committed not only to selling you art pieces that you will treasure but we also refurbish and restoring any art pieces you already cherish and wish to preserve.

History

Thirty five years ago Henry Taylor joined the family business by working for his father who owned the Taylor Dykman Gallery in Carlton centre. The gallery focused on well established South African artists, some of whom went on to become the Old Masters of today.

It was here that Henry encountered the likes of Jeanette Dykman, Father Claerhout, W.Hulley, Martin Koch and Gabriel de Jongh etc. Watching some of these great names painting, Henry gained an appreciation of the techniques that made these names great.

After five years, the gallery re-located to Sandton City and became the Taylor Errol Boyley Gallery. Attention shifted exclusively to marketing Errol Boyley and building up his reputation in Johannesburg.

Five years later, Henry decided to branch out on his own and set up the Henry Taylor Art gallery in Lonehill. Here he focused on up and coming artists as well as the more established artists that he had grown accustomed to. The move was successful and continued to be for seven years when Henry decided to move to the Fourways Mall. It was here that Henry began to specialise in Old Masters focusing on investment art for individual buyers and corporate investors.

Henry Taylor Gallery remained in Fourways Mall for fourteen years but was moved to trendier locations where his target audience was more readily available, first to Design Quarter and then to Cedar Square Mall. Hence the Henry Taylor Gallery is now a destination gallery thanks to the larger premises and wide collection of original paintings and bronze and stone sculptures.

Behind the roaring laughter and warm friendly manner as well the Red Bull induced type energy levels, are a pair of constantly assessing eyes that suggest that there definitely is more and hint at the man who knows his craft and has over the past 35years carved out a reputation that secures his own niche in a sector dominated by big names.

As a second generation gallery owner, Henry Taylor discovered the foundational needs of South Africa art buyers, and caters to that need. After 35years he acknowledges that the knowledge, service and transparency he provides his clients is more important than any image he may portray. This has been the main factor which made 2009 a prosperous year for him instead of the hard year it was for others in this industry.
