About Robert Perera Fine Art

Robert Perera graduated from Cambridge University, England and after working for a leading investment bank set up Robert Perera Fine Art in the south coast Georgian town of Lymington over twenty years ago. He specialises in 19th & 20th century paintings, etchings, lithographs and linocuts.

The Perera family have had a long history in the fine art business including owning the New Forest Gallery and organising national exhibitions including Adolphe Valette (L.S.Lowry's teacher) in Manchester City Art Galley and Martin Snape in Portsmouth City Art Gallery.

We are truly a family business with many family members actively involved in the gallery with over a hundred years experience between them.

In the Media

Robert has appeared on the BBC's antique program "Flog-It!" and has also been asked to appear on ITV's antique programme as a specialist picture dealer.

The gallery was mentioned recently in the Guardian newspaper in an article about the New Forest.

The gallery has recently been asked to lend paintings for Television and a London marine exhibition which is expected to be opened by Her Majesty the Queen.


We advise museums, galleries, auction houses, companies, solicitors and registered charities on selling paintings and assets. Recently we have valued works for a European government department. Robert has also been asked to lecture at Cambridge University on the fine art business.

From our gallery in Lymington we source paintings and prints from the UK and worldwide for our extensive client list and our own gallery stock.

We thank you for you prompt payment. We hope you are satisfied with your purchase and thank you for your very professional advice

Thank you so much for your very quick response to my email. Unfortunately we made the wrong decision and left the picture in the auction ....... it fetched £820 so clearly it would have been better to sell to you. Again thank you - I particularly appreciated your help on a Sunday evening. T. England
