Based in Cheltenham, England, Brave is a premier art gallery with a focus on antique landscapes, portraits and scenes. New finds are added every week, each thoroughly researched and conserved by our in-house team.

Discover exquisite antique paintings that capture the imagination

Our collection is brimming with the finest antique European art - the special pieces that bring decades of charm to your home.

Every painting is assessed by our conservator and restoration work is undertaken when required. We do things the hard way to make life easier for you. For example, we usually keep the original gilt frames and restore each one rather than replacing them with modern replicas.

Benefit from a hassle-free delivery

It couldn't be easier to fill your walls. Simply place your order securely through the website and we'll take care of the rest. Once dispatched, you'll receive a tracking code and regular updates via email or SMS, whichever you prefer.

Learn more about each artist

We use ancestry records, newspaper archives and our extensive library to uncover the background story of each piece. It's fascinating to understand the context of a painting and connect its history with your home.
