Of all gift giving surely buying art for another presents the most pitfalls. Aesthetic tastes can be violently held and difficult to second guess, the benefits of a well-chosen artwork, however, can pay dividends for years.

There can be no more unique and thoughtful present, it shows care, intelligence, taste (obviously if bought from us!) and sits on the lucky recipient’s wall as an everlasting reminder of all those qualities in the giver. Although to be fair some men would prefer a framed rugby shirt signed by the full world cup squad.
