Together with Louise Whitford, Adrian founded the Whitford Gallery in 1973. Operating from premises in Belgravia, the Whitford Gallery dealt in Belle Epoque, Orientalism, Pre-Raphaelites, Symbolism and Vienna Secession. When in 1982 the Whitford Gallery associated with David Hughes, the gallery moved to its current premises on 6 Duke Street, St. James's. Whitford and Hughes continued dealing in the arts of 1880-1930 and developed a distinctive specialisation in Belgian painting and French inter-war Cubism. Their exhibition catalogues have become collectables for anybody with an interest in these fields.
After David Hughes' retirement in 1992, Adrian continued the gallery as Whitford Fine Art. He has since refocused on French and British 20th Century art, including the movements of Cubism, Modernism, Ecole de Paris, Post-war Abstraction and British Pop Art.
Over the years, Adrian has been involved in the forming of high-profile private and public collections both in the fields of the fine and decorative arts. Over three decades his interests have developed and altered but always proven to be visionary. Remaining one step ahead of the market Adrian continues offering clients a safe investment.
Adrian Mibus' keen eye for collecting, his enthusiastic personality and visionary have been the subject of many magazine reviews, including 'Vogue Living' (Oct-Nov 1992), 'Architectural Digest'(Italy, May 1993), 'Ambiente, Die Kunst zu Leben', (April 1994), Elle Decoration (Dec-Jan 1995), Saturday Times Magazine, May 2004, 'Architectural Digest' (Italy, Oct. 2006).
