Marlborough Fine Art
Artist in London
Marlborough Fine Art was established in 1946 by Frank Lloyd and Harry Fischer who emigrated to England from Vienna, where Lloyd's family had been antique dealers for three generations and Fischer had dealt in antiquarian books. They 1st met in 1940, as soldiers in the British army. In 1948 they were joined by a 3rd partner, David Somerset, now the Duke of Beaufort, and chairman of Marlborough Fine Art (London) Ltd. After the wartime years of recession, London became the principal market for modern art and Marlborough's role in this changing art world was set up.
