Simon Shore is a North Cotswolds-based art dealer, agent and advisor who operates within the international art market on behalf of private clients, collectors and museums.
Founding and helping to grow successful galleries in the Cotswolds, Mayfair and New York’s Upper East Side, Simon specialises in the French Impressionists and has placed works by artists such as Monet, Picasso, Sisley, Caillebotte and Pissarro into some of the world’s most illustrious collections, both academic and corporate.
Simon works across all levels of the art market, helping to cultivate private collections as well. Whether sourcing a single sought-after piece or setting an entire art investment strategy, he has unique access to some of the finest works in private hands.
With 25 years’ experience, Simon is widely-respected and uniquely-placed within the industry – and it is his reputation for transparency and professionalism, as well as his personal approach, that help his clients buy and sell with confidence.
The history of the Napoleonic wars has always held a fascination for Simon so it was little surprise to anyone when he first decided to begin buying (and occasionally selling), his own collection of art from this period.
