Parker Fine Art Auctions launched in July 2020, co-founded by Directors Buffy Parker and Henny Smith.
We hold monthly auctions of Oil Paintings, Prints, Engravings, Drawings, Photographs, Posters, Watercolours, Works of Art and Frames in our saleroom in the centre of Farnham – nearly 6,000 square feet filled with natural light.
We are the only auction house in England to sell just Fine Art and also have a unique offer to vendors: to sell with us is just £10 (plus VAT) per lot, which includes all commission, illustration & insurance.
Our auctions – featuring everything from 15th century engravings to contemporary installations – are held live and online, with convenient viewing times and dates in the days leading up to the sale, including the preceding weekend.
For further information, please contact Henny Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01252 20 30 20

Buffy Parker – Director
Buffy has worked in Fine Art since starting out as a porter at Bonhams in 1973. Having led his own Art Dealership in Hampshire for thirty years, buying and selling between 2000 and 3000 paintings a year, Buffy’s particular area of expertise is in Old Master Paintings. He has discovered paintings by Frans Hals, Annibale Carracci, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo amongst others, but his most notable achievement was spotting a Sebastiano del Piombo, which eventually sold to the Getty Museum in California.
Buffy returned to the Auction world as the Head of Pictures at a Surrey auction house before establishing Parker Fine Art Auctions in 2020.
