Honore Cavaroc was an artist and photographer who was born and lived his entire life in Lyon. His father was a goldsmith and this enabled Honore to study at the Imperial School of Fine Arts in Lyon. He painted many small outdoor sketches in the hills and valleys surrounding his home city. Some of this en plein air work was used for larger paintings in his studio and exhibited in Paris and Lyon.

Having lived and worked in London for over 30 years, we are now based in Dorset. We buy and sell fine paintings and watercolours from 1860 to 1960. We do not have a gallery in Dorset but we exhibit and sell at major art fairs in London. See our Exhibitions page for details of forthcoming events. Outside these dates, appointments or visits can be arranged. We are members of B.A.D.A. and also members of LAPADA, the largest association of professional art and antique dealers in the UK.
