About us

Priory Fine Art was founded in 2010 by Brett Stainwright Ward in an historic Georgian mansion in the small village of Thurgarton in Nottinghamshire – the building that gives Priory Fine Art its name.  
Brett’s vision for the company was to source and supply exceptional quality paintings at highly competitive prices by keeping unnecessary overheads to a minimum and using the contacts and experience he had gained through his work in both an art museum and as an auctioneer and valuer in a fine art auction house.  
Since it was founded Priory Fine Art has sold thousands of paintings to collectors, dealers and institutions throughout the world and has built an enviable reputation for the quality of the paintings on offer and the service provided.
At the beginning of 2021 Priory Fine Art moved into a new purpose built property to allow its continued expansion into the future
