Saatchi Gallery

The Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea, London was opened by the collector Charles Saatchi in 1985 to display his superb collection of contemporary art to the public.

Saatchi's collection is now housed in Chelsea in part of the 19th century Duke of York's Headquarters. The original Saatchi collection began in St John's Wood before moving to the County Hall on the South Bank before relocating to its present site in 2008.
