Lucy Johnson specialises in 16th- and 17th-century English and Continental furniture, with an emphasis on the Italian and Spanish Renaissance period, and French Haute Epoque. The accent is on originality, provenance, patina and condition, with museum and collector calibre items shown alongside pieces which have a broader appeal to clients furnishing houses and apartments.
Lucy also specialise in Modern British Masters, such as Henry Moore, Ben Nicholson, John Piper and Graham Sutherland, who are international figureheads in terms of their contribution and the scope of their influence and are artists represented in public collections worldwide. Each picture is a significant example of technique, with interesting provenance and context.
Her showrooms, which are open by appointment, are at Plantation Wharf in Battersea, central London and in Holwell, just outside Burford in the Cotswolds. Lucy exhibits at the major art and antiques fairs in the UK and San Francisco, showing early pieces alongside modern and contemporary, and as a specialist dealer at the major art fairs.
Lucy works closely with private, institutional and corporate collectors worldwide and has collaborated on many interior design projects with architects, designers and decorators, involving both historic and modern interiors. She also works as a consultant providing comprehensive sourcing and advisory services.
