BROWN’S ART WEEKEND

I am bringing you these two blogs today because they update the story of London as a key art market and between them celebrate art from antiquity to the present times and provide a wonderful opportunity to learn and buy.

 Many thanks to my patient readers for putting up with the number of blogs I have published in recent weeks but they represent the vibrancy of London as a world centre of art and antiques, especially at this time of year.

Now in its second year this exciting weekend not only provides the opportunity to visit the various exhibitions taking place in galleries and auction houses in Mayfair and St. James’s but also to attend some of the specialist lectures at Brown’s Hotel, which include topics from ‘How to start your art collection’ to ‘Fashion in Art’ and ‘The history of art in Mayfair’. Each talk will be hosted by a leading art expert and will last 45 minutes at £30(including refreshments).
