About us

The consultancy was founded by Philip Herriott who was formerly Secretary General of The Federation of British Artists, one of Europe's largest art organisations, where he worked with over two thousand artists. He was dirctor of the Alwin Gallery of Contemporary British Sculpture where he worked with the artists Elizabeth Frink and Lynn Chadwick and the estate of Henry Moore. Please see About us


" I was delighted with the help and advice Philip gave me about the art for my apartment. The whole selection process was enjoyable. It was particularly helpful that he could bring work to me so that we could view it in situ in the apartment to see if it was suitable and that he could work around my busy schedule.


I use the apartment frequently for entertaining and the quality of the artwork is regularly complimented. I would recommend Philip extremely highly."

"Art Search's director Philip Herriott ran the Federation of British Artists for several years which means he knows everyone in the world of art. If you have a home or office with empty walls, Herriott is the best person to help you find something to fill them, no matter whether it's for a boardroom or a drawing room.


Friendly, approachable and unpretentious he will guide beginners through the labyrinthine tunnels of the art trade while at the same time he can source precisely what the cognoscenti such as the Sultan of Brunei and BMW want to acquire. He has a particular gift for looking at a space and knowing exactly what will suit it best.


Art Search do not charge fees to their clients but obtain a commission from the artist.                                                                         They advise private and corporate clients throughout the UK."
