Jonathan Gooderham established his first Gallery, Jonathan Grant Gallery, in 1984. In 1989 he purchased ARTIS Gallery and moved both galleries to their current location.

Today Jonathan Grant Galleries has an expansive exhibition space at 280 Parnell Road, encompassing Jonathan Grant Gallery, ARTIS Gallery, and the Basement Gallery, a hybrid studio and exhibition space that offers clients private viewings of large scale sculptures and paintings from the stockroom.

What we do

Jonathan Grant Gallery specialises in British & New Zealand paintings and sculptures  dating from the 18th to the 21st century.

Jonathan Grant Gallery has been operating as a dealer gallery in Auckland, New Zealand since 1984. We assist clients to build collections that express their own individuality, providing the provenance and scholarly background to each painting, and advising on framing, hanging and all other aspects of collecting.

We pride ourselves on offering the finest quality works from our diverse stockholdings. We have helped to form important collections for both individuals and public institutions.


Born in Auckland in 1948, Russell Hollings showed an interest in art from a young age, consolidating his reputation and talent by nineteen when he won his first art award: the R. J. Barnett Award.

Hollings spent his childhood in Papakura, where he derived inspiration from his immediate surroundings. The areas of Clevedon, Alfriston, Hunua and Pukekohe, combined with the landscapes of Thames and the Coromandel Peninsula provided ample scope for Hollings to paint in the manner of the French Impressionists – en plein air, outside within the environment that he was intending to capture.
