Our History

Starting out as a well-respected and award winning Leicestershire based farming family who specialise in the rearing of pedigree English Longhorn Cattle, John & Pat Stanley have a keen interest in the Art world and have combined their artistic expertise with farming passion to create Blackbrook Gallery.

Established in 1989, Blackbrook Gallery are specialists in 19th Century animal paintings and are proud members of the UK’s largest trade association for Professional Art & Antiques Dealers – LAPADA.

The gallery holds a selection of oil on canvas paintings from a number of acclaimed artists including William Albert Clark, A.M Gauchi, John Vine and Thomas Weaver.
A full list of our artists can be found under our Popular Artists page.

With the gallery’s connections to the art world, they constantly have new painting entering their gallery for both collectors and investors.
