Carnes Fine Art specialise in 19th – 20th British and European art work. The company was created by myself, Bradley Carnes and operates from our business location in Lancashire. We source fine oil paintings and works on paper from around the world with a particular interest in late 19th to early 20th century British landscapes, along with French impressionism and continental works of art.
A passion for fine traditional artwork was sparked in the mid-eighties, I was 13 years old. One winters evening I was passing the Unicorn Gallery, which back then, occupied a traditional art gallery located next door to the old Rex Cinema in Wilmslow, Cheshire. I stopped to gaze at the most beautiful highland landscape oil painting, delicately positioned and rightly so, upon a grand art easel surrounded by the tantalising glow of the impressive showroom. The wonderful piece was by the British artist Alfred de Breanski Senior, I remember it so clearly, at that moment my affection for fine traditional landscapes was born. Years later, I began to collect various pieces and refine my knowledge in this field. With a strong passion fuelling my drive and with continued hard work I am now in a fortunate position to deal in fine art. Years of building my experience has equipped me with the expertise to gather some of the finest art work in this genre.
We frequently acquire works by leading traditional British artists including Alfred de Breanski, Benjamin Williams Leader, William Mellor, Henry Parker and Herbert Royle. Carnes Fine Art also endeavour to source and stock fine European work by artists such as Jules Rene Herve, Eugene Galien-Laloue and Antoine Blanchard, amongst others. Whilst fine oils are our love, we are open-minded and stock delightful and unique pieces across a broad range of styles and mediums.
