Timothy Taylor is active in both the primary and secondary markets. The gallery currently represents an intergenerational roster of more than twenty artists and estates from across Europe, Asia, and the Americas, including Alex Katz, Kiki Smith, Antoni Tàpies, and Eddie Martinez. The gallery is known for championing painters whose work is characterized by bold color, distinctive surface treatment, and engagement with the art-historical tradition. Examples include the abstraction of Jonathan Lasker and Chris Martin, to the Symbolist-inflected figuration of Honor Titus and the interiors of Hilary Pecis. Many of these contemporary artists had their London debuts at the gallery. In addition, Timothy Taylor regularly presents historical exhibitions of post-war artists, including Philip Guston, Jean Dubuffet, Agnes Martin, and John Chamberlain.

The gallery's London headquarters is located in a five-story Georgian townhouse at 15 Bolton Street in Mayfair. The gallery expanded internationally in 2016 with the opening of its first New York location on the ground floor of a Chelsea townhouse. [3] In 2023, it opened a 6,000-square-foot flagship space at 74 Leonard Street in Tribeca, renovated by the architectural firm StudioMDA. [4] [5] Alongside its permanent locations, the gallery has a presence in Asia through art fairs, institutional placements, and pop-up exhibitions, such as the first major exhibitions of Sean Scully, Alex Katz, Eddie Martinez, and Antoni Tàpies in mainland China. In addition to regular program, the gallery publishes a range of exhibition catalogues and monographs, with new texts commissioned by leading curators and critics.

<i>City Limits</i> (painting) 1969 painting by Phillip Guston

City Limits is a 1969 painting by Phillip Guston, part of his “hoods” series of representational works. These paintings depicted cartoonish versions of Klansmen engaged in various mundane activities. While other works in this series featured the artist himself under the guise of a KKK member, City Limits provides a more straightforward depiction. The child-like presentation has been described as enabling “a simple account of the simple-mindedness of violence.” It is influenced by his early work with Mexican Muralists and was part of his polarizing abandonment of Abstract Expressionism as a genre at his 1970 Marlborough Gallery exhibition. It is featured in Philip Guston Now, a traveling retrospective that generated controversy when it was postponed in 2020.
