We are proud to say that we have been instrumental in forming some of the finest private collections of Chinese art in the West.

Littleton & Hennessy Asian Art provides consistent and reliable high quality acquisition and consulting services. We furnish clients with personalised assistance, sourcing pieces to form new collections and to compliment existing collections. Drawing on many years of experience in the Asian art markets, we offer our clients the expertise to purchase with confidence pieces that will enhance their collections.

Please contact us if you have any queries, would like a valuation, are looking for a specific piece, are interested in refining your collection, or perhaps attracted to the idea of building on a collection.



We began in 1996 assisting clients based in the United States and Europe in purchasing Asian art.

In 2001, the London St. James’s premises was established with twice yearly exhibitions while simultaneously launching an inaugural exhibition of Chinese art in New York during March Asia Week.

Originally named Oriental Arts UK, we changed our name to Littleton & Hennessy Asian Art in 2004 to coincide with the opening of our New York location and to cover the broad spectrum of our establishment and client base.
