A 1986 graduate of Christie's Fine Arts in London, Anthony McNaught headed the fine arts department of a West Coast auction house for three years before opening his own gallery in 1989. He selects each work with care because he believes that fine paintings become heirlooms, enriched with our shared memories. In his own words, "Many things come and go. Art abides."
