About Us

Founded in 1980, Gallery Lingard is dedicated to the research, cataloguing, exhibition and appraisal of architectural archives, drawings and watercolours.

The Directors are professional appraisers of architectural archives as well as smaller collections of architectural drawings, historical or contemporary, both at home and abroad.

Architectural drawings and watercolours are offered for sale by the Gallery and can be purchased through our website.  The many exhibitions of drawings and watercolours mounted by the Directors are each accompanied by carefully researched and illustrated catalogues.  Our books and catalogues are collected by museums and libraries as well as private collectors with an interest in this field.

Gallery Lingard is also associated with landscape architects and designers       Lingard + Styles Landscapes, for whom they act as historical advisors in respect of historic gardens and parks.  For further information about the work of Lingard + Styles Landscapes please see
