Antique oil paintings and antique watercolours are the choice of many for adding a decorative atmosphere to a space, whether it be domestic or commercial, with many a fine business establishment reinforcing its theme and style with carefully selected artworks.

Our range encompasses periods from the 18th and 19th century as well as some vintage and contemporary works, with both oil and watercolours represented in addition to prints, some of which are signed and numbered.

Collectors of art are encouraged to visit our website, or better-still our showrooms, and view our collections as new examples are being added all the time as works are sold and move on.

Original oils sit next to signed, limited edition prints and tastefully accomplished watercolours by leading UK and international artists in the Regent Antiques gallery of painting and prints - for sale to our customers, worldwide.

Some of the works on offer are antiques and some date from more recent times, but you can be sure of their value and authenticity in a world where, like antiques generally, age does not always dictate value.

Antique Oil Paintings at Regent Antiques

Our North London showrooms are usually well-stocked with oil paintings from well-known artists who operated in the 18th and 19th centuries, as well as a few more recent works. With prices to suit most pockets, this is a great place to start your art collection and, as paintings are by their very nature one-off articles, we strongly advise you to visit us regularly - either in person or via the website, and look at the new arrivals in this category. Many of our customers are just waiting for the right painting to come long and when it does it will be gone in an instant. Our email notification service will help you to avoid this by giving you the “heads up” when a new painting comes into stock.

Landscapes are one of the most popular types of painting that we stock and we regularly offer works by artists such as Carelli, Pollentine, Muller and Ficklin, whose work is appreciating in value but still affordable. We can’t make any guarantees of course but works by these and some of the other notable artists that we regularly offer for sale are likely to increase in value in the medium to long term and represent a solid, if not totally risk free, investment.

Always take a few minutes to speak to our in-house experts and ask any questions that you may have. Buying a painting is not like buying an item of antique furniture. The furniture has a use and you will get value from it in one way or another whereas a painting generally represents a decorative piece as well as an investment.

Although landscapes are the mainstay of our antique oil painting collection that we offer for sale, there are other styles represented including portraits and still life works. We never know what will arrive today or get sold tomorrow, so regular vigilant checking is definitely something you should be doing as often as you can.

Antique Watercolours

Although oil paintings form the larger part of our range, watercolours are far from being just a second thought. We usually have a choice of landscapes in watercolour and the cost of acquisition is usually lower than that of antique oil paintings.

Antique Prints & Contemporary Prints

Prints are popular as a way to own great artwork without the capital investment that can be the case with antique oil paintings and other original works. Our range of prints, many of which are limited, signed and numbered editions, is largely contemporary and includes interesting and unusual items that will appeal to specialist collectors and art lovers in general.

Pay a Visit to Our Showrooms Yourself and Take a Look at Our Antique Occasional Tables for Yourself

If you see an antique painting, perhaps a Victorian oil painting or something earlier or maybe an antique watercolour work or other piece of artwork that you would like to buy please be assured that our specialist team will pack it very carefully and ship it to almost any destination worldwide. We always ask you to please request a shipping quotation first though, quoting the unique reference number on the item’s description page, unless you are located in the UK mainland where we are able to ship to you free of charge.

Our North London showrooms and gallery are open to the public for viewing every weekday between the hours of 10am to 5pm and we also open occasionally on Saturdays. See the homepage of this site for our latest opening hours, including our latest Saturday opening arrangements. You don’t need an appointment but if you want to speak to one of our experts then it is worth calling in advance to make sure that there is someone on hand as the team are often out of town on buying trips.

The showroom is easy to find and is close to rail and public transport links. You will always find many examples of beautiful antique paintings, but if you are travelling to see a particular painting or print please call first to make sure that it is still available.

If you cannot visit the showroom and you have questions about any of our antique oil paintings, vintage paintings and prints or other item or items then you are welcome to contact us by telephone or email using the contact details found at the top of every product description page. Please also quote the item reference when contacting us.

Please be sure to check our notes as to the condition and dimensions of the antique painting or print you wish to buy before purchasing and use the photographs to satisfy yourself regarding the item’s condition.

Finally, please don’t forget to sign up for our free new item notification service which means we will send to you weekly notifications of any fresh arrivals that appear in your categories of interest, giving you an edge over other customers when you are looking for items which are in great demand - please click HERE to receive these notifications.

Antique Painting Grape and Melon Eaters After Bartolome& 39 Murillo 18th C

Antique Painting Grape and Melon Eaters After Bartolome' Murillo 18th C

This is a delightful antique Spanish oil on canvas painting after Bartolome' Esteban Murillo, depicting two peasant boys eating grapes and melon, Circa 1780 in date.  It features a dog staring at two seated boys while they eat fruit with a basket of fruit in the forground. This lively realist portrait of street urchins constitutes an appealing record of everyday life at that time. This superbly accomplished painting is executed in the style of Murillo's later works where he continued to evolve to the very end. In the last decade of his life, Murillo took Rubens's lesson even closer to heart, during this period his brushwork became looser and more visible than ever before, sometimes even to the point that the canvases appear unfinished. Murillo also reduced his palette to the more sober hues of mauve, grey, brown, and carmine, making his late style more refined than in any previous period.   His style of painting the street children of his native Seville was unprecedented. He employed great naturalism, employing a sombre palette and strong chiaroscuro, contrasting lights and darks, and very little background detail. They are caught, like a photographic snapshot, playing or eating, but are very rarely aware of an onlooker.   This magnificent painting is housed in its original gilded frame surmounted by a pierced cresting rail of scrolling foliage. It is beautifully executed and as such would make a lovely addition to your collection.    Condition: In really excellent condition the painting and frame having been beautifully cleaned, please see photos for confirmation.
