Anthony Crichton-Stuart, Director of Agnews, joins LAW Board

London Art Week is pleased to announce that Anthony Crichton-Stuart, Director of Agnews, has joined its Board. He spent much of his career at Christie's, working in the Old Master Paintings department in both London and New York, and was directly involved in many of Christie’s most successful Old Master sales at that time. Anthony returned to London in 2009 and joined the revamped Thos. Agnew & Sons in 2013 after the long-established international fine art dealership (founded in 1817) was acquired by a new American owner. He has worked closely with international collectors and museums in the USA, UK, Europe, Australia and Japan. He brings a wealth of experience from the international (pre-contemporary) art market to the LAW Board.

Anthony says: "I have always enjoyed participating in London Art Week as it is one of the most collegial art events in the world. Last year the LAW team adapted quickly to the restrictions the pandemic inflicted on the art market and I particularly enjoyed contributing to talks and articles, which helped engage with curators and collectors, old and new, around the world. Agnews are uniquely active participants in all areas of the market, from Renaissance and Baroque Old Masters through Romanticism and the 19th Century, and Modernism in the 20th Century. I will continue to acquire and present important, interesting and thought-provoking works of art, always with a view to attracting a new, younger and diverse clientele to the pleasures and satisfaction of collecting."

Sam Fogg - 16 March – The Female Artists, Actresses, and Playwrights of Strawberry Hill Theatricals


This webinar will explore the role of female artists, actresses, and playwrights involved with theatre at Horace Walpole’s Strawberry Hill. Judith Hawley (Professor of English, Royal Holloway, University of London) will discuss Walpole's activity as a playwright and the custom of private theatrical events of the period. Cynthia Roman (Curator, Prints, Drawings, and Paintings, The Lewis Walpole Library, Yale University) will present illustrations of Walpole’s scandalous gothic play The Mysterious Mother by the artist Diana Beauclerk and the closet built to house them at Strawberry Hill. Laura Engel (Professor of English, Duquesne University) will consider Walpole’s literary executor Mary Berry’s play Fashionable Friends, which was performed at Strawberry Hill with sets designed by her sister Agnes and starred herself and the sculptor Anne Damer in the leading roles. She will also discuss Damer’s close relationship with the famous actress Eliza Farren, re-imagined in Emma Donoghue’s historical novel Life Mask.

Both galleries have recently handled early works by Lawrence that will feature in a forthcoming online exhibition at the website of the Holburne Museum in Bath entitled Thomas Lawrence: Coming of Age. Amina Wright has worked for three decades as a curator of historic art collections, exhibitions and interiors, specialising in eighteenth-century British art and Old Master paintings.

Florrie Evans, director of The Fine Art Society London, in conversation with Jo Baring, Director of the Ingram Collection of Modern British & Contemporary Art.

More details on the talks will be announced on the website; they are all free to attend, just register online to take part. Written articles will spotlight individual works of art for sale from London Art Week dealers on a variety of subjects. A series on Women Artists continues a thread that LAW started in October 2020; and whilst we are still unable to travel in real life, London Art Week lets the artists do the travelling for us, presenting works on the theme of A Place in Time – views and locations captured by artists across the centuries that we might like to imagine ourselves in and the travels we could enjoy to reach them.

London Art Week Summer 2021, 1-16 July

London Art Week will take place as a dual aspect event, online in a Digital format allowing participants from across the globe to take part, and as physical exhibitions in galleries as local guidelines allow.

A new introduction to LAW Digital Summer 2021 will be Revolution and Renewal, an online themed exhibition. London Art Week is delighted to welcome as guest curator the art historian, curator and academic scholar Dr. Arturo Galansino, Director General of the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi in Florence. Well-known among the London Art Week community, Arturo Galansino has been invited to curate this special exhibition by the LAW Board who have long admired his exceptional track record in curating and co-curating incredible shows spanning Old Masters to contemporary art: from Moroni, Giorgione and Rubens at the Royal Academy to Ai Weiwei, Bill Viola and Marina Abramović at the Palazzo Strozzi. “It will be interesting to see what thread, narrow or broad, he weaves from the submitted works to Revolution and Renewal,” comments Amelia Higgins, Director, London Art Week.
