Masterpiece London opened its door yesterday for a special preview. The art and design fair is in its fourth year and is going from strength to strength, becoming a firm fixture in the summer art season. It is a unique experience that allows visitors to admire art and design creations from a very eclectic selection of galleries from all over the world.
The spectacular value of Masterpiece London offers the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of many works of art, that when sold to a private collector will not be available to the general public any longer. Eclectic is the appropriate word to define this fair, with the young Princesses Beatrice & Eugenie paying a visit yesterday as well as Uma Thurman and Anna Wintour.
The Sperone Westwater Gallery from New York embodies the unique nature of Masterpiece London with a selection of art that spans from the baroque period, with a wonderful Lorenzo Lippi painting of Saint Catherine of Alexandria to a modern sculpture of Tom Sachs named Vanity.
Masterpiece takes place from 27 June – 3 July 2013 in the heart of Chelsea, on the South Grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, London SW3.
