Tomasso Brothers Fine Art was established in 1993 in Leeds, and opened its first London gallery in 2010. Today, we operate from Bardon Hall in Leeds and from Marquis House, on Jermyn Street in London, at the heart of St James’s, for centuries the home of some of the world leading art galleries. Dino and Raffaello Tomasso are recognised internationally for specialising in important European sculpture from the early Renaissance to the Neo-Classical periods, with a particular knowledge of European Renaissance bronzes. They have interests in several other fields including Old Master paintings, antiquities, fine furniture and objects. Tomasso Brothers also advises the Arts Council of England's Reviewing Committee on the export of works of art and objects of cultural interest.
We regularly support British and international museums and cultural institutions through sponsorship and the loans of artworks. In 2012, we contributed to the realisation of the landmark exhibition Bronze at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. More recently, we have sponsored Blood and Tears: Albrecht Bouts and the Image of the Passion at the Suermondt-Ludwig Museum in Aachen, Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill at the Strawberry Hill House Trust in London, and Bertoldo at the Frick Collection in New York.
In addition to advising private collectors of European sculpture and Old Master paintings internationally, Dino and Raffaello have made significant sales to some of the world's most prestigious museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Bode Museum, Berlin; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; The Liechtenstein Collection, Vienna; the Yale Center for British Art; the Art Institute of Chicago; and the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna.
