GRANT WATERS FINE ARTBy Appointment Only
I focus chiefly on Modern British paintings, drawings and original prints from the 1890s to the 1950s by well recorded artists. This has been my area of personal collecting interest since the late 1960s and now that collecting has extended to dealing, I tend to offer only those things I enjoy myself and in which I have confidence about the quality of the work, condition and value for money. The majority of the stock is figurative, although I do have a keen interest too in 1950s and 1960s abstraction, and thus the inventory will be varied. At times there will be work by good European, American and Australian artists of the early to mid 20th century. I do not deal in contemporary art.
There are several hundred works in stock at any one time, a good number of which will be shown here on the Decorative Collective. The stock changes regularly and I aim to keep this site up-to-date. Sometimes I will bring out something I have had in my private collection for decades. I am really a collector at heart who has accumulated far too many pictures over more then fifty years.
I can also be found on www.artuk.org (the Art Detective section), where I contribute especially to discussions about artworks held in public collections in South East England, East of England and the Midlands. I am also working with Art UK on a number of curations to help the public navigate the site to best advantage given any particular interests they may have. Art UK is well worth a visit.
My elder son Nick Waters deals in Modern British art as well. He is also on the Decorative Collective under Nick Waters Art and on the DC's sister website, Hoarde Vintage under the business name RetroSixty. He deals in Post War art but sometimes has 21st Century artists in stock, such as Sir Peter Blake and Joe Tilson.
The prices shown for my stock on Decorative Collective include shipping to the Great Britain mainland. Shipping is available elsewhere, but do please ask me for a quote. I try to keep the costs as low as possible without compromising the quality and speed of the shipping process. Overseas clients may also have to pay import taxes / Value Added Tax or similar in their own country. Every sold item is accompanied by a detailed receipt, including the name of the artist where known, and all such items identified specifically are guaranteed as being authentic.
In order to enquire further about a work on this site, or to make a purchase, please contact me on 07738 730952 (any day from 0800 to 2100 UK time) or via email by clicking on the CONTACT DEALER tab on each stock item page. Enquiries for other artists not listed on my site are always welcome as I or my son may have something in stock or we may know where such a work may be located. Normally I will endeavour to get back to the caller the same day. I am very happy to provide additional images, a condition report, and further background information about any work. On request I will reserve available works for up to 72 hours to allow the client time to make a decision. Viewings are normally possible by appointment in Angmering, West Sussex, and are very much welcomed, as I recognise that clients may prefer to see pictures 'first hand' before making a decision to buy. I have been in Angmering for well over thirty years.
