About

A private dealership based in London, specialising in International Post-War & Contemporary Art. Originally founded in 1991 by Scottish art dealer Brian Balfour-Oatts, a former Christie's specialist, ARCHEUS / POST-MODERN deals primarily from art fairs in the US and by appointment in London.

The gallery focuses particularly on American and European masters from the 1950s and 1960s, and related later works.
