Stephanie Hoppen Gallery on Walton Street exhibits contemporary artists and photographers from UK, Europe, America, Asia, Australia and South Africa. What differentiates Stephanie Hoppen's gallery from any other is her refreshingly practical approach to art. She is not interested in the jargon or the theory – only in the practice – preaching that many of the conventions about buying and displaying art are stifling and out of date.

"Buying art is not like buying a piece of furniture. It has no function other than to bring joy into one's heart and an element of pure beauty ... above all, it should be 'love at first sight'"

Her shows are intriguing, dramatic and exciting, Originally an antiquarian book and map dealer, Stephanie broadened her interests to include photography, prints, paintings, sculptures, glass, jewellery and furniture. The gallery in Walton Street has become a destination for buyers of contemporary art.

Stephanie Hoppen is also an influential force in British interiors and author of countless design books including 'Picture Perfect', 'Perfect Palettes' and 'White on White'.
