Ray Waterhouse worked in London in the international art trade for over 35 years after being awarded a First Class degree in Art History and History at London University in 1973. He began Waterhouse & Dodd in 1987 with Jonathan Dodd. He now lives and works in New York where he runs Fine Art Brokers, and acting as adviser to a select few important collectors.
His specialist knowledge is in Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Modern art, but given his enormous art market experience he is knowledgeable in most areas of the market. He has developed close ties with museum curators, artists, private collectors and dealers across the globe. Although Ray has helped form a number of important private collections of European and American art, one of which is worth well over $100 million, he still enjoys working with new collectors and helping them form a strategy to their collecting. He has also helped many clients sell art discreetly and at very favourable prices. He has been entrusted by clients with buying individual paintings without his clients even viewing them up to the value of $22 million.
Ray has lectured widely on the subject of collecting art and how to establish value. He has given talks in New York, Los Angeles, Palm Beach, Hong Kong, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Basel and elsewhere.

Jonathan Dodd brings more than 33 years’ experience of the international art market to his role in Fine Art Brokers. Having read Law and History of Art at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, he worked in an antiquarian print gallery before joining forces with Ray Waterhouse at Galerie George, and with him founding Waterhouse & Dodd in 1987.
Based in London, Jonathan travels widely and has built up a network of contacts for buying art throughout Europe and the USA that he continues to visit regularly. These include not just dealers, but private collectors, artists, journalists, art advisers and museum curators.
Originally Jonathan’s specialist field was 19th and early 20th century European Art, encompassing Victorian and Academic art, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, but over the years this has extended to most collected areas from pre-Renaissance to contemporary art.
Jonathan is married to the editor of an art magazine.

We are delighted that Adrian joined Fine Art Brokers on June 1st from Sotheby's, where he had been from 1987 until April 2015. He was Head of 19th Century European Paintings for 15 years, having previously worked for 12 years in the Impressionist and Modern Art Department.
Adrian had a distinguished academic career, winning a Morehead Scholarship to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, spending a year in Montpellier at Université Paul Valéry, and he then studied Art History at Downing College Cambridge.
Adrian took his first auction in 1992, and was appointed Senior Director at Sotheby's in 1997. During the last 15 years Adrian has been instrumental in developing the 19th century market, working across Europe and specialising in Scandinavian, Spanish and French painting. He visited USA frequently to meet major clients. He is looking forward to sharing his expertise with clients of Fine Art Brokers in his two areas of specialist interest, 19th and 20th century art.
