Established in 1972 as Christie’s Contemporary Art, a subsidiary of the famous auction house Christie’s International, CCA Galleries has over 50 years experience as one of the world's leading publishers and galleries, specialising in original limited edition prints.
Operating as an independent company since 1985, CCA has continued to build on its reputation in partnership with Coriander Studio. In 2010 CCA Galleries bought Coriander Studio outright, one of Europe’s longest established and most prolific print studios that specialises in silkscreen and digital techniques. In 2014 CCA also bought Curwen Studio, the UK’s oldest and most prestigious lithographic print studios since 1939, and in 2015 incorporated Huguenot Editions, a specialist etching and intaglio printmaking studio. Four years later, the three leading printmakers and publishers moved to the former Isleworth Film Studios, establishing the now internationally acclaimed Worton Hall Studios.
In the early days, CCA introduced original prints into the art world as a major and collectable art form. Today, CCA continues to promote these ideals and boasts an enviable international reputation. Its aim now, as it was in 1972, is to publish the finest limited edition original handmade prints by established printmakers and eminent artists, as well as young artists in the early stages of their careers. CCA prides itself on nurturing long-standing working relationships with artists, and working closely with them to create prints in all mediums at Worton Hall Studios.
In addition to published artworks, CCA also owns a wide collection of original paintings by some of the best known British artists: including Sandra Blow RA, Donald Hamilton Fraser RA, Sir Terry Frost RA and John Hoyland RA to name a few. CCA also acts on the behalf of artists estates, as in the case of Donald Hamilton Fraser.
Part of CCA’s philosophy is making contemporary British art accessible to the wider community, executed through an e-commerce website, the gallery in Jersey, the CCA Art Bus which takes exhibitions to schools and towns across the UK, and a selection of authorised stockists:
