Knysna Fine Art is one of South Africa's finest and largest galleries. We specialise in contemporary South African art in a variety of media.
The owner is Trent Read, the eldest son of the late Everard Read, who was the doyen of South African art dealers and Trent is the fifth generation of his family to be a dealer. He worked at Christie's in London and also worked in the USA. He moved to Knysna in 1994. He is considered an expert in contemporary South African art but his knowledge of the fine and applied arts in general is broad and clients of the gallery have access to a wide spectrum of expertise from his local and international links.
The gallery director is Corlie de Kock.
We consult to museums, corporate and private collectors both here and internationally and offer expert advice on the care and maintenance of collections. Our expertise in the design of environments to show art at its finest is used extensively by architects and designers. We value for insurance and probate.
