The late Christopher Wood was a picture dealer of great renown and an expert on Victorian art, in particular the Pre-Raphaelites, the Arts and Crafts Movement and gothic revival furniture, sculpture and ceramics. Perhaps best known from the popular BBC television series The Antique Roadshow, Wood is credited with reviving an interest, both scholarly and commercial, in a field of art that had fallen from fashion after the First World War. The Christopher Wood Gallery has now become incorporated with James Harvey British Art, the eponymous Harvey having been a protégée of Wood's and an expert in the same field.
