Starting at the age of 10, child prodigy Anthony Christian studied the techniques of the "Old Masters" at the National Gallery in London. Throughout his time at the National Gallery and for a further seven years Anthony studied the works of Rubens, Rembrandt and other Old Masters. His painting and drawing style most resembles the techniques of Leonardo da Vinci.

His work features in certain private art collections such as Gore Vidal, Baroness Marie-Helene de Rothschild, Viscountess Jacqueline de Ribes, Mrs J Heinz, Bill Blass, HM Queen Elizabeth II, Mrs. James Lipton and Herbie Hancock.

His wife, Marian Fanny Christian, is also an artist. Fanny's style is probably unique in its form and uninfluenced by Christian's work although they sometimes combine their drawing skills to produce beautiful Collaborations
