Rossi & Rossi was founded in London in 1985 by Anna Maria Rossi who has been active in the field of Asian art for some 40 years. In 1988 she was joined by her son Fabio who had studied at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). Together, they have established a reputation as leading dealers in traditional Indian and Himalayan art, early Chinese and Central Asian textiles and works of art as well as contemporary Asian art, particularly Tibetan. Their deep interest in both the art and culture of the past and the vibrant and innovative art being produced by Asian artists today is reflected in their international reputation for handling only the finest pieces. Among their clients are such institutions as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The Cleveland Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston,the Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney, the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and the Tokyo National Museum as well as distinguished private collectors. Contemporary collections include The Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art along with The White Rabbit Foundation in Australia, the Liverpool Museum, the Burger Collection Hong Kong and the Devi Foundation, India.
Rossi & Rossi have published a number of scholarly works and regularly stages specialist and ground-breaking exhibitions. The gallery moved in 2007 to the current premises on the ground floor of an elegant 18th century townhouse in the centre of Mayfair enabling them to give greater prominence to contemporary Asian art while continuing to show the traditional Tibetan and Himalayan art for which they are renowned. In 2013, Fabio Rossi opened a new space within a former industrial building in the Wong Chuk Hang area of Hong Kong Island, where he shows both classical and contemporary works.
