The Works on Paper Fair, The Science Museum, 6th – 9th February.

This very enjoyable Fair, which is now in its fifth year at the Science Museum, brings a wide variety of works on paper together. The Fair’s director Lucy Russell sums it up saying

 “We aim to present a stimulating and diverse range of Early, Modern and Contemporary watercolours, drawings, prints, original posters and photographs from the late 15th Century to the present day”.
