Not Just a fine Art Shop!!
In 1960 Leonard Cowling and Bernard Wilcox went into partnership specialising in supplies for commercial Art and Graphic Studios. An office was obtained near London’s old Billingsgate Market and Cowling & Wilcox Ltd was born.
In 1961 a need for larger premises led to the lease of a small shop at No 61 Broadwick Street, Soho, in London’s West End.
Our move to Soho attracted many young artists to this area where they could find a good source of supplies, affordable rents and like-minded people.
The Art Schools were producing Design Graduates full of confidence and enthusiasm, ready to take on the world.
