Agnew’s Moves, Appoints New CEO

After a year in a temporary space, Agnew’s, the family firm of art dealers founded in 1817, has found a new home—a four-story townhouse next to Brown’s Hotel in Albemarle Street, Mayfair.

LONDON—After a year in a temporary space, Agnew’s, the family firm of art dealers founded in 1817, has found a new home—a four-story townhouse next to Brown’s Hotel in Albemarle Street, Mayfair. The firm had sold its building on Old Bond Street to fashion chain Etro last year.

Agnew’s has also appointed the first chief executive in its history not to be a member of the family: Thomas Lighton, formerly managing director of Waddington Galleries, which specializes in modern and contemporary art. The appointment confirms the firm’s commitment to dealing in modern and contemporary art as well as the Old Masters and English watercolors with which it has historically been associated.
