Welcome to Staithes Group Art Specialists, T.B. & R. Jordan's Gallery

We’re Tom and Rosamund Jordan and we have been dealing in Fine Art for over forty years.

Our special interest has always been the work of Impressionist artists painting in the North of England around a hundred years ago. The Staithes Group, who worked in and around the picturesque fishing village, have always been special favourites. Many of them trained in Paris and/or Antwerp at the height of the Impressionist movement bringing the broad brush strokes and outdoor painting of this Movement back to Yorkshire. Their work is now in private and public collections world wide.

A more recent interest is the work of mining artists, especially that of the late Durham miner, Tom McGuinness.

We search for the best examples and sell at prices that make it possible for clients to hang museum quality examples on their walls.


On Monday 30th April some of our paintings and the Staithes Group itself are featuring on a BBC programmer for Yorkshire and Lincolnshire TV. Called 'Art and the Sea' it should be possible to view it then or later on  the BBC Yorkshire and Lincolshire website. 

We will be bringing some of the paintings shown in the programme to our Staithes Group Selling Exhibition in the Pannett Gallery, whitby from 26th May until Sunday 10th June.

More details can be found on our Facebook page : The Staithes Group of Artists which I keep up-tp-date with news and loads of pictures.
