About Us

Kallos is ancient Greek for ‘Beauty’. The name is our touchstone for every artwork we offer at the gallery.


Founded in 2014 by Baron Lorne Thyssen-Bornemisza, Kallos Gallery is a London gallery specialising in antiquities and ancient art. We sell only the most extraordinary pieces from Antiquity, offering Ancient Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Western Asiatic and European masterpieces. Each artwork has been carefully chosen for its outstanding artistic merit, cultural significance, and provenance.


 We make it our business to ensure that our clientele enjoy the impeccable personal service and professional expertise they expect, and that their collections deserve.


In line with the educational priorities of our founder Baron Lorne Thyssen-Bornemisza, through our events and exhibitions, and our educational outreach programme, we are dedicated to making Kallos Gallery a forum for communicating important study and insight into the ancient world.
