Victor Musgrave (1919–1984) was a British poet, art dealer and curator. Described by David Sylvester as a 'true pioneer' Musgrave was the first gallerist to show Bridget Riley and was a champion of Art Brut. He often bragged that he was the only art dealer who did not wear a tie.
Musgrave ran 'Gallery One' between 1953 and 1963, first in Litchfield Street then moving to D'Arblay Street in Soho. The gallery gave Yves Klein his first solo exhibition in London and also presented work by Fluxus artists. In the 1950s he had several exhibits of work by Francis Newton Souza.
