20|21 International Art Fair, Royal College of Art, Kensington Gore, London SW7, 14th – 17th May 2015
Now in its ninth year this popular fair offers a wide diversity of art from sixty galleries, many of which are based in the UK. The art however comes from a variety of different countries, including Japan, Russia, Serbia and South Africa with prices from a few hundred pounds upwards.
Some twenty-three years ago Agi Katz of the Boundary Gallery bought a portfolio at auction in which were watercolours by an artist she had not come across before called Olga Lehmann (1912-2001). Agi fell in love with the watercolours which dated from 1940 and depicted scenes of life during the Blitz, so much so that she tracked down the artist and they became friends and she was also able to acquire more of these distinctive works. There is appropriately enough a special display of them to mark the 75th anniversary of the Blitz.
