Ordovas is a private gallery dealing in the best of 20th century and contemporary art with a museum-quality exhibition programme. Founded on a commitment to and passion for art, and grounded in 18 years of specialist experience, it offers maximum discretion and unrivalled access to public and private collections globally, helping collectors, whether established or new, to navigate the art world. Pilar Ordovas founded her gallery after 13 years at Christie’s, where she was International Director and Deputy Chairman, Post-War and Contemporary Art in Europe, and two years as a Director of Gagosian Gallery in London.

Ordovas stages three museum-quality exhibitions a year; scholarly in tone, these shows bring focus to historical works as well as modern masters and often present works that have not been exhibited for generations.  Many works are loaned from private collections to which there is no public access and several exhibitions have been organised in close collaboration with major institutions including The Courtauld, Dulwich Picture Gallery and the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.  Located in the heart of London’s art district, the sleek 2,000 sq ft space at 25 Savile Row provides an inspiring environment for exhibitions and private sales of rare and important artworks.
