About Antique Portrait

Antique Portrait was founded by Alan Nelson in response to the growing World interest in all things genealogical. As major dealers in fine paintings they have successfully run substantial traditional galleries in London for the past 20 years. Selling major works of art internationally to private clients and museums.

This site was founded to display and sell a unique and important archive of portrait engravings. Since going on line one year ago the site has been regularly visited by 2000 collectors per day and we have sold several thousand prints. We now have an even larger stock of original antique engravings, spanning over 500 years and encompassing every major ruling family of Europe. All are available for sale or reproduction, subject to our standard conditions.
