Our Departments

Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood Staff

At Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood, we are proud to have the largest team of experienced fine art specialists in the West Country. Staffed by our own full time experts and a number of key consultants assisted by several junior valuers we can provide advice across all the principle fields as well as an increasingly important number of niche disciplines.

This coupled with an extensive fine art reference library, our own computer databases compiled from some fifty annual auction sales and a number of specialist Internet programmes means we can assist owners with the accurate identification of their art, antiques and collections.

We also have historical relationships with a number of London auction houses, and a reliable association with several key local and national Museums, Art Galleries and a number of academic authorities which provide both a useful resource for research as well as a broader market place.

All of our fine art experts utilise their knowledge outside of work either in the writing of articles, are members of specialist research bodies or provide assistance to a number of important local organisations.

We currently have the following departments:-
