Rafael Valls Limited is a St. James’s-based art gallery specialising mainly in Old Master paintings, particularly in works by Dutch, Flemish and Spanish masters.
Owned and run by Rafael Valls and his wife Caroline, the gallery has traded for over thirty years and carries an eclectic, varied and extensive stock mainly from the 17th- and 18th-centuries, but with interesting examples outside this period. It has gained a reputation for trompe l’oeil paintings and for the small exhibitions it holds annually to coincide with Old Master Paintings Week in London.
The gallery exhibits annually at The European Fine Art Fair in Maastricht, which is now regarded as the finest art and antiques fair anywhere in the world.
The gallery purchases works of art directly from private clients and can act as agents for individuals as well as providing valuations, advice on conservation and advice to buyers and sellers at auction.
Caroline Valls is a former Chairman of the BADA Fair and has served as a member of the Council of the British Antique Dealers’ Association.
