The gallery is one of the leading specialists in Russian and Greek icons from the 16th to the 19th century and sells to private clients as well as to national museums, both at home and abroad.


Richard Temple founded the Temple Gallery in 1959 which quickly became a centre for the study, restoration and exhibition of ancient icons and sacred art. Temple is a member of the Advisory Panel of the Art Fund (formerly the National Art Collections Fund of Great Britain) and has been highly active in the acquisition of icons by several major museums.
