Careers at King & McGaw

Over the past forty years, we have become the most prominent fine art publisher in the UK. By working directly with leading museums and galleries, we are proud guardians of prestigious art licenses, including The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Keith Haring Foundation, Tate, National Gallery and British Vogue to name a few. 

We are passionate about what we do and everything we produce is uncompromising on quality. From the precise pigments we select to the sustainable paper we print on, the frames we make – by hand in our state-of-the-art workshops ​​– to the care that goes into our packaging. 

Based in Newhaven, East Sussex, we have extremely committed retail and museum wholesale teams on site. United by our shared love for the arts, we’re making it our mission to preserve it for posterity. That’s why we conserve rare pieces and we support emerging artists. When a customer shops with us, artists, their estates, and institutions benefit from sales. 

We have the network, contacts, and manufacturing processes in place, and we are focussed on building a talented team of people who can contribute to the brand’s ongoing success story.
