Who We Are

Why Gurr Johns

With an independent spirit and global perspective, Gurr Johns has a proud tradition of giving leading professional insight into the art market and for developing longstanding relationships with art collectors.  Since 1914, our reputation has been built on the values of connoisseurship, discretion, and commercial transparency.

We employ an experienced college of professionals across our offices in London, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Delhi, and Hong Kong. Our team is recognised for its strength of client service, market experience, and negotiation know-how, and for always being led first and foremost by our clients’ interests.

Social Responsibility

Gurr Johns believes operating as a responsible business brings benefits to our enterprise, our people, our clients, and the broader cultural community.

Each year we sponsor educational arts platforms at a public institution. For 2020, we are delighted to partner with Pallant House Gallery, in the South of England.  www.pallant.org.uk
