    Masterpiece London, sponsored by the Royal Bank of Canada, is delighted to announce the exhibitors joining the fair’s 7th edition, which runs from 30 June - 6 July 2016 (preview Wednesday 29 June) at the Royal Hospital Chelsea. Masterpiece is the world’s leading multi-disciplinary fair, showcasing museum-quality works of art and design that span over 5,000 years of art history. Exceptional works will be presented from across disciplines including Impressionist and Modern art, Post-war and contemporary art, Old Master Paintings, modern and contemporary design, decorative arts, ethnographic and folk art, antiquities, rare books and jewellery.

    This year the fair welcomes new exhibitors who represent the best in their field: designer Axel Vervoordt builds on the strong presence of ‘cross-discipline’ exhibitors at Masterpiece, such as returning exhibitors Rose Uniacke and Alessandra di Castro. Tornabuoni Art will present key works of Post-war Italian art, adding to the fair’s strong representation of this period with returning exhibitors Mazzoleni London, Robilant + Voena and Cortesi Gallery and new exhibitor M & L Fine Art. Wallace Chan, the Hong-Kong based jeweller makes his UK debut at Masterpiece and will present new works specially created for the fair. Chan is known for numerous innovations including the ‘diamond claw’ and the ‘Wallace cut’. Design gallery Modernity (Stockholm) will bring extraordinary works of Danish and Swedish design from the early 20th century, including a Jens Jacob Bregnö standing clock from 1927, inspired by the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun. Further additions for this year are Stephen Ongpin, gallery for Master drawing, watercolour and oil sketches from 16-20th centuries and Safani Gallery, New York-based specialists in art from ancient cultures of the Near East, Egypt, Greece, and Rome – who share a stand with Harmakhis Galerie, as well as Senger Bamberg Kunsthandel, David Ghezelbash Archéologie and Waterhouse & Dodd.

    Impressionist, Modern and Post-war art galleries returning to the fair include Richard Green, Dickinson, Robilant + Voena, Thomas Gibson Fine Art, Offer Waterman, Piano Nobile, Lowell Libson, and Osborne Samuel.

Remarkable works of jewellery will be presented by Symbolic & Chase, Hemmerle contemporary German jewellers, and Van Cleef & Arpels.

    At the fair Royal Bank of Canada will present the RBC Fifth Plinth, a project curated by RBC Curator Robin Anthony and Masterpiece Chief Executive Nazy Vassegh, inspired by London’s Trafalgar Square public art programme The Fourth Plinth. This year’s theme of women celebrates the female perspective, examining masterpieces bought to the fair by its exhibitors that have been created by, featuring or made for women.

    Nazy Vassegh, Chief Executive of Masterpiece London said ‘I am delighted to announce so many brilliant additions to this year’s fair. Masterpiece has unrivalled depth and spectrum, and I am pleased that Masterpiece has continued to strengthen every edition. We are looking forward to another great year.

    Tony Johnson, Head of Sales and Relationship Management, RBC Wealth Management, said ‘We are delighted to be back at Masterpiece London as Principal Sponsor. The fair is one of the most prominent gatherings of collectors, exhibitors and curators in the world, and provides inspirational experiences for our clients and new perspectives for us all.’’

    In 2016 Masterpiece London takes place alongside London Art Week, 1 - 8 July. The fair also coincides with London’s summer auctions for Old Master Paintings, Modern, Impressionist, Post-war and Contemporary Art.

  • Masterpiece London is delighted to announce Perrier-Jouët Champagne as its official Champagne Sponsor for the 2016 Fair. For the first time at Masterpiece, this iconic champagne house will also be sponsoring the Terrace, which they will transform into an elegant bar area for visitors to enjoy during the fair.

    Since its creation by Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and his wife Adèle Jouët in 1811, the House has always favoured an approach combining skilled craftsmanship with a sense of artistry. Known for their celebration of the marriage of art nouveau and nature, as demonstrated by the Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque bottle, designed in 1902 by Emile Gallé, their vision and spirit will be perfectly reflected in the design of the terrace.
