Run by proprietors Alfred and Ronald Cohen, Trafalgar Galleries specialises in European Old Master paintings including Dutch, Italian, German, Flemish, French and Spanish works from the 14th to 19th centuries.
They have been based in Bury Street, St James’s, the hub of London’s internationally renowned art market, since 1956.
The gallery deals principally with museums, foundations and private collectors and their paintings have been acquired by a wide range of major national and international museums.
They have been holding exhibitions for over 50 years, usually accompanied by informative catalogues. Typical examples of exhibitions and catalogues have included Italian Paintings from the 14th to 18th Centuries (2004), Aspects of Painting over Six Centuries (1977) and In the Light of Caravaggio (1976).
The gallery prides itself on the diligence of its picture research. Among work published by Ronald Cohen has been A Rediscovered Painting attributed to Goya: La Boda The Royal Modello and Jusepe De Ribera - An alternative view of his origins, apprenticeship, and early works.
The gallery has an extensive art reference library.
