    Thursday 29 June-Wednesday 5 July, daily at 6pm, JLT Stand in the Partner’s Area

     

    SAW was set up to give people of any age curious about any kind of art the opportunity of looking at it and, more importantly, handling it, within a small group led by a specialist dealer  or curator. These workshops are not talks, or master classes for experts, but environments in which anyone can engage with objects first hand, look, think and ask questions. They are as much about passion and pleasure as knowledge.

     

    Subjects will vary each day. They are free to attend with a Masterpiece 2017 ticket and will operate on a first come, first served basis, maximum 10 guests:

     

    29 June – Chinese scholar’s rock, with Marcus Flacks

     

    30 June – Bronze: The Centaur Nessus Abducting Deianeira, c1590, with Dino Tomasso

     

    1 June – Rustic pottery v. court porcelain, with Errol Manners

     

    2 July – Regency silver, with Lewis Smith of Koopman Rare Art

     

    3 July – Historicism meets modernism: a tureen designed by Christopher Dresser, c1880, with Blairman’s Martin Levy 

     

    4 July - Lalique: the pine cone pendant in context, with Wartski’s Katherine Purcell (on Wartski’s stand)

     

    5 July - Cabinet of Curiosities, with Jan Finch

     

  • See The Cape Reimagined, an exhibition by Burberry at Masterpiece London.

    Our official Preview Day partner, Burberry, will bring a selection of handmade couture capes to this summer's fair.

    Referencing the spirit of the Burberry archive, each cape is designed in their London atelier and crafted using unique constructions. Introduced on the runway, these collector’s pieces are inspired by the scale and form of Henry Moore’s sculptures, and represent the very essence of the British brand.

    This year Masterpiece London launches MASTERPIECE PRESENTS, a new large-scale dedicated exhibition space which will transform the Fair’s entrance.

     

    Masterpiece has always offered collectors the opportunity to view and buy masterworks from antiquity to the present day, and this year we are stretching boundaries, with our most contemporary work for sale being a brand new immersive installation by renowned Chilean artist Iván Navarro.

     

    Navarro is known internationally for his socio-politically charged sculptures of neon, fluorescent and incandescent light. He represented Chile at the 53rd Venice Biennale and his work is held in major public and private collections around the world.

     

    Navarro’s installation has been commissioned for the Fair by Paul Kasmin Gallery who will be exhibiting for the first time this year.
