Charles Mayes is a former director of Richmond Gallery in Cork Street and has specialised in important equestrian paintings, contemporary figurative art and sporting and marine art for more than thirty years. He spent some years at the London dealers Frost & Reed who dealt in fine equestrian, Victorian and marine paintings.

Educated at the Courtauld Institute of Art,  Charles has sold highly important paintings by masters such as Canaletto, Cezanne, Sisley and van Gogh as well as by most of the important sporting and equestrian painters of the 19th and 20th centuries, in particular Sir Alfred Munnings.

Complementing his expertise in historical equestrian and sporting paintings, Charles Mayes has worked for many years with major contemporary equestrian painters and sculptors from Tod Ramos (whose "Racing Year" exhibitions he put on at Richmond Gallery) to Susan Crawford, Peter Curling, Darren Baker, Judy Boyt, Lesley Thiel and Brooksby.

A main speciality is the commissioning of equestrian and sporting paintings and bronzes. Call or email Charles Mayes for information on commissioning.

As a corporate art consultant Charles has worked on the collections of numerous companies and Health Care providers including Rolls-Royce, Heidrick & Struggles,  Hammerson, John Lewis, The Royal College of Surgeons, The Heart Hospital and London Bridge Hospital.
