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”.
Some fifty dealers are participating in the show and among them is Guy Peppiatt Fine Art who is showing watercolours and drawings by the 19th century British artist Edward Duncan while Harry Moore-Gwyn is exhibiting a series of studies for the Briar Rose series by Sir Edward Burne-Jones as well as a study for Stanley Spencer’s unfinished The Apotheosis of Hilda.
There are a larger number of galleries selling 20th Century and contemporary works this year, including the Lilford Gallery, who display works by Billy Childish and Banksy, and ArtDog London. There is also a good showing of Japanese works from Mary Deeming Fine Art and the Tolman Collection.
All the works are vetted by experts and prices range from £250 to as much as £75,000. The majority of works are in the £500-10,000 region.
