Living House Gallery

About Richmond Hill Gallery online & Living House Gallery

The Richmond Hill Gallery opened its doors in 1996, specialising in promoting the work of Royal Academicians and other leading 20th century artists.

Over 24 years, Marianna Penturo has housed many important paintings into private and corporate collections worldwide. She has now created the intimate and atmospheric Living House Gallery where you can explore a selection of carefully curated artworks by senior Royal Academicians and leading established artists within a less formal environment.

In homage to these artists, over two years, Marianna has adorned this living house with antique architectural features and iconic design pieces to further stimulate your senses, a theatrical backdrop to the masterly paintings that take centre stage.

By creating an evocative, yet familiar domestic, space the collector can intimately enter the surface of each painting and explore their own senses … an extraordinary experience.


 “Artists, lovingly, fill their studios in order to inspire creativity, so I bring that atmosphere to you at Living House Gallery.
Marianna Penturo – Fine Art Consultant


Visiting Living House Gallery is by appointment and invitation only between 11am – 5pm.

In 1996 I set up the Richmond Hill Gallery to eliminate the pretence and intimidation I had experienced as a fine art student while visiting private art galleries in the early 1980s. I also decided to bring the very best of 20th century painting to Richmond whilst before it had only been accessible in the Mayfair art quarter. 

I have been very fortunate and continue to work alongside many major Royal Academicians and leading artists over the years, these include John Bellany CBE RA and the Estate, James Butler OBE RA, The late Frederick Gore CBE RA and his Estate, Anthony Green RA, John Hoyland RA and the Estate, Dr Barbara Rae CBE RA and Philip Sutton RA to name a few. 

I have also worked alongside many major art specialists to source artworks by modern Masters to include Picasso, Matisse and Pissarro for my discerning customers. 

I’ve been very fortunate to be invited to the artists’ studios to select the works for my exhibitions. To know the art first hand, from the artist’s own perspective, to hear their stories, to visit their homes and their studios has given me a wealth of knowledge which I enjoy passing to my clients. 

Advertising in the RA magazine and other fine art magazines, I was also involved in producing, with the artists, several important fine art publications. 

When you buy a piece of art you love, you learn its story and the artist whom created it, you become part of its journey and its becomes part of yours. 

So what can I do for you: 

The art market is vast, so its terribly important to find the right art dealer to help you on your journey. To understand your criteria and to nurture your loves. A trusted friend who will be painfully honest and loyal. 

Whether you are a first time buyer who wishes to build a collection, or an experienced collector who wishes me to source a particular piece or refine your collection, this should be an exciting and worry-free experience. 

I will happily provide you with advice through my experience and wealth of knowledge on whom to collect and why, if required. 

You will have exclusive and confidential access to the latest collections at Living House Gallery.

All the artworks come with full providence and authenticity and I will also provide you with a full valuation for your insurance. 

By experiencing the collection privately and intimately, I want you to experience first-hand all the excitement of connecting to a piece of art … our confidentiality and discretion is paramount.

Shuffling works around to welcome your new purchase can be daunting, so my experienced and fully insured art installer and lighting technician is at hand to take the strain and find the perfect setting for your new acquisition. 

We also work with established fine art couriers and shippers and can offer professional advice on framing and conservation. 


Visiting Living House Gallery is by appointment and invitation only between 11am – 5pm.
