Founded in London in 1946, Marlborough Gallery is widely recognized as one of the world’s leading contemporary art dealers. Initially embracing a new generation of post-World War II artists including Henry Moore, Francis Bacon, Graham Sutherland and Ben Nicholson, the gallery was soon selling masterpieces of the late 19th century including bronzes by Edgar Degas and paintings by Mary Cassatt, Paul Signac, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Alfred Sisley and Auguste Renoir. By the late 1950s and early 1960s Marlborough held a string of prime exhibitions related to Expressionism and the modern German tradition. In 1960 an exhibition of new paintings by Francis Bacon proved sensational and was followed in 1961 Henry Moore’s important exhibition of stone and wood carvings. That same year saw an exhibition of work by Jackson Pollock and in 1964 an extraordinary exhibition of paintings, watercolors and drawings by Egon Schiele was held in London for the first time.

During the 1970s and 1980s, Marlborough staged some of London’s most remarkable exhibition by such artist as Frank Auerbach, Francis Bacon, Lynn Chadwick, Lucian Freud, Babara Hepworth, R.B. Kitaj, Henry Moore, Ben Nicholson, Victor Pasmore, John Piper and Graham Sutherland. Important exhibitions were held of work by Jacques Lipchitz and René Magritte in 1978; and the innovative Schwitters in Exile show of 1981 that reshaped opinion of the late work of this artist.
Marlborough Gallery has represented such seminal artists as Jacques Lipchitz, David Smith, Robert Motherwell, Phillip Guston, Adolph Gottlieb, and the estates of Jackson Pollock and Franz Kline.

In October 2007, Marlborough Chelsea reopened at 545 West 25th Street, New York, NY. Marlborough Chelsea will also house the offices of International Public Art/Marlborough (IPA). IPA is an independent corporation of Marlborough Gallery Inc. committed to the development of international public art projects, with an emphasis on the integration of art, architecture, and the urban and natural environments.
