Primavera was founded by Henry Rothschild and first opened its doors in 1946 at 149, Sloane Street, London. Primavera opened in Cambridge at 10, Kings Parade and so the foundations were laid for what is now known as one of the world’s best contemporary art galleries. Primavera has seen many changes in the world of art and crafts over the years. From the
beginning British craft was sought out, including country potteries, basket makers and studio potters. The latter group included the now-famous Ray Finch, Bernard Leach and Lucie Rie. Today Primavera shows work exclusively by British artists with a unique selection of Jewellery, Ceramics, Glass, Sculpture, Paintings, Textiles, Wood, Bronze, Enamel and Silverware.
