Nicholas Grindley was born in England in 1951. For over 35 years now he has been dealing and researching Chinese art, with particular interest in furniture and works of art. During most of this time he has conducted his business as a private dealer although since 1998 he has published two catalogues a year, and exhibited in London, New York and Hong Kong; many works from these exhibitions and his other dealing activities are in museums and private collections throughout the world. Nicholas is asked by museums in the US and Europe to advise on the acquisition, disposal, cataloguing and re-attribution of Chinese furniture in their collections. He had a gallery in Old Burlington Street, London for over 10 years, but has now moved to New York on a permanent basis. However, the business is still very much UK based, administered and run from his office in Suffolk by manager Rebecca Gardner, who is the first point of contact especially for UK and European clients. Nicholas Grindley exhibits during Asia Week New York in March, the AADLA Spring Show in New York in May and the prestigious Fine Art Asia Hong Kong Fair in October.
