Welcome to the Newman Fine Art Website



Originally trading as the Heather Newman Gallery, Newman Fine Art is the business established by Derek Newman following the death of his mother and business partner Heather in September 2004


The business continues with the policy of specialisation in fine quality British Watercolours of the 18th 19th & early 20th Centuries that Heather established in 1969 at her home in Gloucestershire, where Derek joined her in partnership in 1986


The reputation of the business which has long been regarded as a leading authority in this field is enhanced by membership of The Cotswolds Art & Antique Dealers Association (CADA)


In the 1960’s and 70’s watercolours of this period were greatly undervalued as their quality and importance to the development of British Art was still in the early stages of recognition. Many people have been consequently introduced to the subject and enabled to build up major collections over the past 50+ years from the exhibitions of both the Heather Newman Gallery and subsequently Newman Fine Art


Based in a charming old cottage in the small Cotswold town of Painswick in Gloucestershire, pictures can be viewed throughout the year at any time by appointment


Please contact Derek Newman for any specific requirements, as well as advice on any collecting issues
