Tomasso was founded in Leeds, Yorkshire, in 1993, by brothers Dino and Raffaello Tomasso. They specialise in European Sculpture, Master Paintings and Ancient Art, and are recognised internationally for their particular expertise in European Renaissance bronzes.
Dino and Raffaello have promoted and supported, through loans and exhibitions, major international institutions and significant sales have been made to some of the world’s most prestigious museums, including the Bode Museum, Berlin; The Liechtenstein Collection, and the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Yale Center for British Art and the Art Institute of Chicago.
Their first London gallery opened in 2010. Today, they operate from Bardon Hall in Leeds and from Marquis House, on London’s Jermyn Street, located at the heart of St James’s, for centuries the home of some of the world’s leading art galleries. In 2014, Emanuela Tarizzo (Courtauld Institute of Art BA 2009, MA 2010) joined the team and is now Gallery Director in London.
In over 25 years, Dino and Raffaello have made major rediscoveries in the fields of European Sculpture, Master Paintings, and Ancient Greek and Roman Sculpture, collected in Tomasso Brothers’ anniversary publication XXV.
