Giles Baker-Smith has been working at the heart of the London art world continuously for well over 30 years, initially in the secondary market, specializing in nineteenth and twentieth century British and European painting, and, since 1992, focusing primarily on the contemporary sector. As founding director of the Blue Gallery, he has identified, nurtured and championed the work of a host of artists across a wide spectrum of media, many of whom have forged significant reputations. Today GBS Fine Art continues to offer a platform for artists, who, irrespective of fad and fashion, produce work of clarity, accomplishment and resonance.
