Marlborough began as representatives for a new generation of post-war British artists, such as Henry Moore and Francis Bacon. The gallery quickly expanded its business to 19th century secondary market dealings in Degas, Cassatt, Signac, Monet, Pissarro and Renoir.
Through the 1960s, Marlborough presented exhibitions of new work by Bacon, Still, Moore, Pollock, David Smith and Schiele.
