Established in 1988 on Hollywood Road, Wattis Fine Art has built up a reputation as the foremost gallery in Asia specialising in historical pictures, antique maps and travel books of East Asia. Jonathan Wattis, who joined Christie’s in London in 1977, has drawn on his wide experience of the international art market to collect these antiques and holds regular exhibitions focusing on the historical development of the Far East. The gallery is a magnet for those fascinated by the rarest recorded images and maps of the region, and counts major museums, libraries and foundations in Asia, Australia and the USA among its clients.
