Peter Harrison and Simon van Oostende met whilst reading history of art and art world practice at Christie’s Education in London. They soon discovered that they shared the same deep passion for old master pictures, which in June 2019 led to the launch of Harrison & van Oostende Fine Art, specialising in sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth-century British and Continental paintings.

Key to Harrison & van Oostende’s approach in sourcing works is a thorough and extensive level of research and the ability to find pictures of only the highest quality. Consequently Harrison & van Oostende Fine Art has sold several artworks to both private clients and museums. 

Harrison & van Oostende Fine Art is currently managed by Peter Harrison, having previously interned with the esteemed London Old  Master galleries Philip Mould Ltd and Simon Dickinson Ltd.
