Founded by Jonathan Voak in 1997, Atelier Limited is based in London and Jersey and deals mainly in 17th - early 20th century oil paintings, watercolours, drawings and etchings and offers a museum standard conservation service. The Company operates from its office in Grouville, Jersey, and uses its London base near Tower Bridge to meet clients.
Atelier harnesses the expertise of its Director and Consultants who have previously occupied senior positions in London’s national museums. The Director of Atelier, Jonathan Voak, was a curator with the Victoria and Albert Museum and Head of Apsley House, the Wellington Museum, on Hyde Park Corner in London.
Atelier is a member of BADA (the British Antique Dealers' Association), LAPADA (the Association of Art and Antique Dealers), and of CINOA (the International Art and Antique Dealers Association). The company exhibits in London at the annual BADA and LAPADA Fine Art & Antiques Fairs and the Summer and Winter Art & Antiques Fairs at Olympia. It also holds regular exhibitions in Jersey and Guernsey.
Full colour illustrated catalogues are issued up to three times per year and specialise in the Channel Islands, early views of the London Thames with a special emphasis on the London Docklands, and marine paintings in general. A strong marine theme is usually balanced by a number of landscape, figurative and still life paintings.
