transaction and are thankful to have found you and
your fine gallery.

I came to your site via a Wikipedia article on Anthony Thieme.
You seem consistently to select fascinating work in the
impressionistic world. I am at the point of developing my
brushwork, and your selections almost invariably show
brushwork of exceptional merit or skill, or both.
Thanks much... Dave G. (Boston, MA)
It was a pleasure meeting you and visiting your lovely
shop. We love our new painting and will definitely visit
you again when next in Fort Lauderdale.
Jim and Carole H. (Chicago, IL)
You took time with me while I visited PPA and gave me
information about Emile Gruppé and his book on color, the
limited palette, etc. I wanted to thank you for your expertise,
your time and kindness. I am testing some of his methods
and I am very pleased. It seems to be providential that I
visited your distinctive, excellent gallery in November...
Kevin H. G. (Marietta, GA)
Dear Stuart and Mrs. Pocock,
Thank you for all your patience in leading us
through the acquisition of our lovely
paintings and lamps. We enjoyed meeting
you both and look forward not only to
future visits to your shop, but also to
renewing our acquaintanceship.
Again, many thanks for your infinite
Stephen and Karen N.(Kennebunkport, ME)
Just a quick note to thank you many
times over for the time you spent researching
my painting with me. I learned so much from
the experience and my parents would be happy
to know that their artwork ended up with you.
I know you will find a good home for it and
again, I thank you for making the sale such a
comfortable and informative experience.
James D. (Fort Lauderdale, FL)
Thank you for taking so much time helping us select the frames for our
collection of paintings. You attention to detail, quality of selections and
level of professionalism are simply outstanding. We couldn't be more
pleased with the end result and the artwork now shines.
What a difference the right frame makes!
John and Diane F. (Palm Beach, FL)
Here is the picture I promised of the painting in its
new home. The perfect setting turned out to be in the
center hall downstairs and changed the space
completely. Thank you so very much for all your

Dear Mr. Pocock,
Enclosed find our check for the purchase of the
painting by Aldro Hibbard. We very much look
forward to receiving the it once we return to the City.
I'll confirm that date with you by email.
Natalie and I want to thank you for working with us
to make the purchase a reality. We love the work and
have wanted a painting by Hibbard for some time.
Our "Winter Landscape" is perfect and will be a
welcomed addition to our collection.
We would like to also mention that we were very
taken by your breadth of knowledge and your
enthusiasm. It is obvious you have a love for what
you do. It made us feel very comfortable and we
genuinely appreciate the time and care you took in
assisting us with our decisions.
Alfred and Natalie M. (New York, NY)
From "ItsJustLight.com" article on the gallery:
...'Walking into the gallery is like entering a museum, and undoubtedly there are more than enough incredible works
lining the walls to fill a respectable museum. While there is an endless supply of art for sale in South Florida
specifically marketed to the tourist market, this art most certainly does not fall into that category.
With an emphasis on impressionist paintings of the early to mid 20th century, the art and antiques in the Pocock
Gallery are fit for the walls and rooms of the most discerning collectors and the gallery is easily in the same league as
the best galleries in New York and Europe. The gallery itself is reminiscent of the most luxurious of royal salons,
decadent and rich, but at the same time very warm and inviting'...
....'Everywhere that I travel, I like to meet good people. “Good” is quite an ambiguous word, but I take it to mean
many things; kind, knowledgeable, genuine, honest… Having worked in the fashion industry for long enough, I have
honed my senses to quickly identify the good people, because in life they are all too rare and are truly worth
surrounding oneself with. In an art world filled with many people of questionable motives and morals, Stuart Pocock
manages to be all of these things.'
Nick Zantrop, Author and Photographer, California
Denise and I were thrilled to see the three paintings
in their new frames. We kept staring at them; the
frames brought the works to life. Details that we
had not noticed before appeared before our eyes!
Thank you so much; plus, your fee is very fair...
Dean and Denise P. (Winchester, MA)
I had to take a few minutes out of my day to thank you
for thinking of me for the William Lester Stevens. As
you said, "it will look spectacular on the wall with the
right lighting"... And it does! Your mannerism and
professionalism were perfect and far exceed most of
Thank you once again for offering the painting to me. I
now certainly have a passion for Stevens' works and
pray for another e-mail from you with another offering.

Dear Mr. Pocock:

Thank you also for making the sale of our two
paintings so easy. At first we were a little
apprehensive because of the long distances, but
after talking with you we could tell we were
dealing with an honest person. Difficult to

worked out the way it did. We will send out

The painting was delivered today. The box was a little damaged,
but your packing is so good that nothing happened to the artwork.
It is always such a pleasure to do business with you and I look
forward to our continuing relationship.

The Gruppé is better than expected - and
thats saying a lot. Love the frame too. I'll

Hello Mr. Pocock.
Your offer has been the strongest one from any dealer by far. Apart
from that, I also feel more confident dealing with you after our
telephone conversation. I therefore would like to proceed with the
sale of my painting to your gallery. What's the next step?
Thank you for your kind consideration,
Paula B. (Nashville, TN)
I contacted a number of parties for the sale of my
clients' artwork and you are the only one that has
bothered to write back more than three words to me. I
thank you for all the information you provided me and
appreciate your candor and constructive suggestions.
With regard to the single painting that you have
interest in, I will present your offer to my clients as
well as the sales information you provided. I feel
confident that they will want to proceed with the sale
and will be in touch with you shortly.
Thank you once again,
Mark S. (Coral Gables, FL)

art pieces from us, I am not surprised you enjoy such
a fine reputation.

Pocock gallery when we visit Fort
Lauderdale.' Review on Google.com
Stuart... Thank you for spending time with us in your beautiful
gallery. It's funny to think that we were a bit intimidated when we
first walked in. You made us feel right at home.
When the time comes and we are serious about collecting, we know
where to go. Need to finish college first! ;)
It was wonderful seeing you as always.
Although it was a short visit, we are
thrilled with our newest acquisitions!!

Review posted on google.com
Pocock Fine Art is the best art gallery in the area. The selection of artwork is incredible and every
piece is researched, documented and very well priced. The owner has a great eye and every painting
is framed with superb taste. Have been shopping there for many years and every time we go in, it
seems to be better than the last. We visit some of the best art galleries in the country - the world -
and Pocock's has our highest recommendation.

Dear Mr. Pocock:
Thank you so much for your detailed response to our
inquiry about the Gordon Grant painting. We all really
appreciate your hard work, honesty and referrals. We
will diligently follow your advice and contact a few
dealers, and possibly sit on it for five years.

so happy to have it in our collection. Words cannot describe

the framing exceptional. What a difference it
makes to the room and to our art collection...

Dear Pocock Fine Art:
My wife and I just spent the last hour going through your website
and think that your collection is outstanding and very well
presented. We will be visiting Miami Beach this winter and will
make it a point to stop by your fine establishment. By the way, we
travel quite a bit and have visited all the best art galleries in the
country. Based on what we have seen on your website, it is obvious
you are among them.

Stuart, the painting arrived today...
What a great packing job! The painting really looks great and your description of its
condition and of the frame was a big help. I'd like to also thank you for the packet with
the bio and listings on the artist, as that proved very informative. Buying art unseen is
a daunting challenge, but with your help it turned out to be an enjoyable experience.
Thanks again, Roger.

Dear Mr. Pocock,
I'm so thankful that even though my painting didn't
suit your beautiful artwork gallery collection, you
took your time and knowledge to help me.
Have a great day,

paintings are simply gorgeous!

Again it was a pleasure doing business with you.
Hope to continue in the future.

The painting arrived today, and as you
said, it is truly wonderful in presence. You did a
masterful job with the framing and display, and
it really punctuates the piece nicely.
The transaction, packaging, shipment, and
associated documentation was first class.
Thanks so much! I hope I find my way to another
one of your works.
Chris E. (San Diego, CA)
For high end art and antiques, walking into the Pocock is like entering a museum of fine art. Each piece is
magnificently displayed in the most tastefully decorated of settings, superior or the equal of any art or antique
specialty store in the country inclusive of those located in the prestigious areas of uptown Manhattan. The prices
clearly labeled, the staff available, knowledgeable and helpful but totally unaggressive without any "hard sell"
push. Each piece of work is also available with a proper authentication that you can trust and rely upon.
Even if you can't afford any of it, Pocock is worth a browse and you'll always find yourself welcome to do so.
(Review on Yelp.com)
Crossing paths with you has been a pleasure, and
working with you is quite enjoyable!
By the way, after leaving your shop the first time I
contacted a friend and said, "I finally got a chance to see
REAL art." She laughed and knew exactly what I meant!

Something I liked was transformed into
something I now love, the painting and its new

Above all, I cherish every day your sister's paintings on
my wall. They hang together, vertically, on just the right wall.

The Cahoon Museum of American Art board and staff can't thank you enough for allowing us to borrow seven
works for our exhibition "A Family of Artists: Gruppé Family March 13 to April 29, 2012."
The exhibition was very well received and we had many people from on and off Cape viewing the exhibition
and commenting very favorably on the quality of the work. Because we were able to borrow such exquisite works
from you, the quality level of the exhibition was exemplary.
Thank you again for allowing us to borrow these extraordinary works and I hope our paths cross again soon.

Cheryl and I would like to thank you for your generous
time in evaluating our painting. Even though the results
were not what we had hoped for, non the less (sp),

enjoy the work and have placed back on the wall already.
Once again, thank you..

We are pleased to announce that the opening of 'Jane Peterson: At Home and Abroad' was a great
success... The exhibition of eighty-nine works is the first large-scale retrospective and first museum
exhibit of Peterson works in forty-five years. Your participation in the exhibition made it possible for
us to bring this well-deserving American artist back to the public sphere. We are most appreciative of
your loan which was significant in making the exhibition a great success.
