About Us

Trowbridge Gallery was established in 1982 and is the only antique print Gallery in Western Australia. The Gallery specialises in selling original prints from the 17th to 20th century. Subject areas are wide and varied including early maps, charts and prints of Western Australia, flora and fauna including ‘The Birds of Australia’ and ‘The Mammals of Australia’ by John Gould, architecture, legal, medical, musical, sporting and decorative prints to name a few.

The Gallery is owned by Steven Marcuson who scours Europe searching out these old works on paper whilst keeping up with any new advances in conservation framing.

Trowbridge Gallery also has its own workshop specialising in conservation framing and is a Government Preferred Provider.

Steven Marcuson

Owner

Steven was born in Glasgow, Scotland and came to Australia in 1983 while still in his early twenties. The business was established later that year in Old Theatre Lane, Claremont. Over the next few years the business grew and in 1989 moved into its present premises. Steven’s passion is history so searching out of old maps, charts and rare lithographs is, for him, the best job in the world. In 2016 Steven’s first novel The Bunting Quest was published by Hybrid Publishers in Melbourne and reprinted the following year.

Bronwyn was born in Perth, Western Australia. She spent her twenties and early thirties in London and New York working with interior designers advising them on art and framing. Returning to Perth in 1995 she joined Steven as the Artistic Director of the Gallery. Her creative insight led the Gallery into the design space adding to its historical antique base. With Bronwyn’s guidance the Gallery’s reputation for quality framing and presentation is unsurpassed in Perth.
