ABOUT THIS FAIR:

Masterpiece London (28 June - 04 July 2018) is the unmissable art fair at which visitors can view and buy the finest works of art, design, furniture and jewellery - from antiquity to the present day. The Fair offers an unparalleled opportunity for new and established collectors to discover exceptional works for sale across a range of price points from 160 international exhibitors and across every major market discipline.

 

Longstanding Masterpiece exhibitors including Richard Green, Adrian Sassoon, Wartski, Robilant + Voena, Verdura/Herz-Belperron and Dickinson are joined by carefully selected new additions for 2018 including: ArtAncient, Ben Brown Fine Arts, Cahn, CINDY CHAO The Art Jewel, Day and Faber, DIE GALERIE, Galerie Yann Ferrandin, Flowers Gallery, James Graham-Stewart, Hammer Galleries, Hauser & Wirth, Galerie Henze & Ketterer, Hill-Stone, Hunter / Harrison, Kallos Gallery, Landau Fine Art, Lullo • Pampoulides, Maruani Mercier, Moussaieff Jewellers, Sarah Myerscough Gallery, Jill Newhouse Gallery, Partners & Mucciaccia, R & Company, Fabio Salini and Vigo.

Masterpiece’s cross-collecting ethos can be seen throughout the Fair, where exhibitors specialising in a wide variety of disciplines and eras are brought together, offering the broadest spectrum of works of any art fair, with classical and contemporary shown side-by-side. Visitors will encounter presentations which carefully combine furniture, sculpture and works of art from all periods, unified by quality. Examples of this ethos can be seen at Benjamin Proust, Perrin Fine Art, Robilant + Voena, and Safani Gallery & Geoffrey Diner.

This year important Impressionist and Modern works will be exhibited at the Fair by a number of exhibitors. Landau Fine Art’s presentation will include a Picasso oil painting which hung for decades behind the desk of his only dealer, Paul Rosenberg. Gladwell & Patterson will be bringing a preeminent example of a late waterlilies painting by Monet and, celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, Hammer Galleries will be bringing an early work by Joan Miró along with Marc Chagall’s Peintre au coq rouge.

DIE GALERIE are collaborating with M. F. Toninelli Art Moderne to present a focussed booth with work by three key Surrealists: Max Ernst, André Masson and Roberto Matta, including a monumental bronze statue by Max Ernst, whose work will also be shown at Ludorff’s stand. German Expressionist works by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff and August Macke, will be displayed by Galerie Henze & Ketterer.

 Van Cleef & Arpels, Stand A27 - Clock, c. 1929, by Van Cleef & Arpels, heritage  collection, Turquoise, lapis lazuli, pink quartz, enamel.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

Masterpiece is an important destination for collectors of British art and design and many of this year’s exhibitors are celebrating the work of British artists as well as those who have lived and worked in the UK. This focus is encapsulated by Richard Green whose presentation ‘Best of British from our Shores and Beyond’ includes pieces by J.M.W.Turner, L.S. Lowry and John Constable.

Modern and Post-War British artists, including Eileen Agar, Duncan Grant, Barbara Hepworth, Bridget Riley and Graham Sutherland, will be presented by The Redfern Gallery, Osborne Samuel, Philip Mould, Offer Waterman, Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert and Piano Nobile.

Opera Gallery will be presenting works by some of the world’s biggest artists from the last century at Masterpiece London art fair at Royal Hospital Chelsea this year (27th June – 4th July). Curated by Opera Gallery London Director Sebastien Fabien Plantin, the gallery’s eclectic display will explore nudity, eroticism and sexuality, with works ranging in price from £60,000 to £1.8m.

Alongside works by great Modern European artists Picasso, Joan Miro and Alexander Calder, there will be large scale paintings by Keith Haring, Jean Michel-Basquiat, Tom Wesselman and Fernando Botero, as well as sculpture by the late pop-artist Robert Indiana.

Opera Gallery’s exciting array of works at Masterpiece 2018 celebrates a year where Modigliani’s nude fetched a record-breaking $150m, London showcased its first ever Erotic Art Exhibition, and Sotheby’s paid homage to the nude in their Erotic Art auction reaching sales of £5m. For Masterpiece, Opera Gallery has sourced their most compelling works from their galleries across the world and brought expressively to show at Masterpiece.

Founded by Gilles Dyan in 1994, Opera Gallery offers museums, foundations and private international art collectors unique access to a diversity of Modern and Contemporary artists through an exciting programme of curated exhibitions and high-profile art fairs.

Among many other highlights at the 2018 edition, celebrating the best of British and in celebration of the 300 year anniversary of Thomas Chippendale’s birth, Ronald Phillips and Apter-Fredericks will be presenting important pieces by the British cabinetmaker.

British furniture will also be championed by Oscar Graf, whose stand will explore the theme of ‘Victorians & Edwardians’, displaying beautiful pieces in a variety of styles from 1860-1910. Jewellery exhibitor Didier Ltd. will include a focus on British designers on their booth with pieces by Wendy Ramshaw and her husband David Watkins.

18 Davies Street Gallery display will showcase the best of 20th Century French and Italian design with exquisite pieces including fashion house founder Jeanne Lanvin’s 1920’s oak writing desk, Milanese armchairs, to Cordouan alabaster and polished copper floor lamps. The exhibition will also include Jean-Pierre Pincemin’s minimalist paintings, created after his involvement with the Supports/Surfaces movement.

The star highlight is LANVIN fashion house founder and doyenne of Haute Couture Jeanne Lanvin’s personal desk and its accompanying deskchair, carved in oak with gilt bronze handles. Both were created especially for her by Armand-Albert Rateau in the early 1920s during his major redecorations of the fashion designer’s apartment, homes, and businesses.

Masterpiece London will be holding talks, workshops and tours throughout the public days of the fair as part of a Talks & Education Programme, in association with Chopard. This includes a new initiative - a Curator and Art Trade Day on Saturday 30 June co-chaired by Thomas Marks, Editor of Apollo, and Philip Hewat-Jaboor, Chairman of the Fair, which will include a call for papers from academics. This is in addition to a series of ‘How to Look at’ talks, providing visitors with the tools needed to get the most out of viewing and buying a range of disciplines of art. Throughout the Fair there will also be free to attend on-stand talks with exhibitors, where specialists will give visitors an insight into some of the highlights on display.
