About

  • About

    The longest established art gallery and leading dealership in Oxford, over the past two decades Aidan Meller has sustained high acclaim for the calibre of work displayed. With a reputation for showing internationally acclaimed artists of the Western canon, the gallery also works closely with collectors to provide expert consultancy services.

     

    Located on Turl Street in the heart of Oxford, the gallery’s principal site provides a display area for exhibitions. Aidan Meller has developed over the past twenty years to represent significant estates and important artists including Camille Pissarro, Pablo Picasso, and Marc Chagall. Since its inception, the gallery has displayed an academically rigorous, ambitious programme of shows from the Bloomsbury Set to Impressionism, and the St Ives School. The gallery has hosted historically significant exhibitions including a substantial collection of significant Pre-Raphaelite School drawings discovered by Aidan Meller in 2013.

  • Investing considerable resources into research, the gallery aims to encourage a continued and engaging discourse around the oeuvres of the artists represented. With a diverse range of activities that engage with education, history, and publishing, the gallery plays a unique role in Oxford’s cultural landscape. With the intention of spurring creativity and fostering a passion for art, the gallery has forged strong links to local schools, Oxford University, and the Ashmolean. Public engagement includes collaboration with the University Art History Society, local talks and lectures, and workshops and competitions with local schools.

  • Complementing exhibitions, the gallery holds an expanding programme of events, based at a stately home that dates from the Elizabethan period. Since Aidan Meller made the residence his private home in 2016, the historic building has been given a new lease of life as a space to display artwork, invigorating the local community. A safe house for Elizabeth I, inspiration for Toad Hall, and with connections to Burne-Jones, the space is a rare gem that sets off the work displayed.
