  • THE NSPCC JOINS MASTERPIECE LONDON AS THE 2015 CHARITY PARTNER 02/03/15



    Masterpiece London is delighted to announce its partnership with the UK’s leading children’s charity, the NSPCC, ahead of this year’s Masterpiece Fair. 


    The focus of the partnership is The Art Gala at Masterpiece, which will be held in aid of the NSPCC on Tuesday 30 June – a glittering event that will raise vital funds for the NSPCC’s post-abuse therapeutic ‘play therapy’ services, supporting children across the UK affected by sexual abuse.  


    This year the event includes a glamorous evening reception from 7.00pm to 8.30pm with tickets available at £100 per person. The Art Gala reception, which will include a silent auction, live entertainment, champagne and canapés, will be followed by an exclusive dinner for London’s most art-loving philanthropists. Tables priced from £10,000 will be decorated in the spirit of this year’s ‘Neo-Romantic’ theme, providing the perfect setting for a wonderful night.

  • EXCEPTIONAL EXHIBITORS ANNOUNCED FOR 2015 20/01/15



     

     

    Masterpiece London is delighted to announce significant additions to this year’s Fair; London’s renowned fine art gallery Richard Green (UK), David Gill Galleries (UK), Parisian decorative arts dealer, Kraemer Gallery (France), Van Cleef & Arpels (France), Jacques de la Béraudière (Switzerland), Nilufar (Italy), will all join the Fair for the first time. In good company, they will be presented alongside returning exhibitors including Ariadne Galleries (USA/UK), Adrian Sassoon (UK), Blain | Southern (UK), Dickinson (UK/USA), S.J. Phillips (UK), Hemmerle (German), Offer Waterman and Co (UK), Sam Fogg (UK), Thomas Gibson Fine Art Ltd. (UK), and Tomasso Brothers Fine Art (UK), bringing together a selection of the world’s leading art, antiques and design galleries. The Fair offers unrivalled opportunities for collectors and enthusiasts to meet international specialists from a diverse range of disciplines and to purchase some of the finest and rarest works available in the current market.

    We are very pleased to be exhibiting at Masterpiece this year. We have been watching this fair since it began, taking over the helm from the premier Grosvenor House Art & Antiques Fair, after it closed, and have been impressed with the way it has brought many of the characteristics of successful international art, antiques and luxury fairs together under one roof. A first class fair in London at the height of the summer season is just what the market needs.” Jonathan Green, CEO, Richard Green

    Of the Kraemer Gallery, who are exhibiting in London for the first time in their 140 year history, Karl Lagerfeld says, “For high quality 18th century [furniture and objets d’art], the Kraemer Gallery is my favourite.” (Le Monde, 15 September 2012)

    The Fair occupies a unique position at the heart of the summer season in London, drawing both international and UK based visitors to the capital annually to peruse over 3,000 years of history and creativity through some of the most exceptional objects exhibited for sale. General admission tickets cost £25 each and can be purchased from the Masterpiece London website www.masterpiecefair.com

    Masterpiece London 2014 was robust, with over £100 million worth of art sold and over 35,000 visitors attending during the eight day Fair, which sets the stage for the 2015 edition. The commercial success of the 2014 Fair can be attributed to the increased number of private sales and the groundswell of interest and purchases from world-renowned institutions including the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Rijksmuseum, MoMA, British Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum, The Getty and Tate.

    Of the Fair, Martin Travis at Symbolic & Chase, said, “Masterpiece has matured into a fair that features on the international calendar for all serious collectors and dealers alike. In 2014, existing clients were excited to be returning, and numerous new faces appeared to see what the fuss was about. As an exhibitor, I can honestly say it is sad when the fair finishes and we have to go home, as it is one of the few fairs that sees huge visitor numbers right up until the last hour. The visitors are also not there to just sightsee, as we have enjoyed significant sales to new and existing clients each day the fair is open. I am looking forward to 2015.”

    The Fair will once again bring to London a wealth of exceptional UK and international names, including Alan Wheatley (UK), Alessandra Di Castro (Italy), Amir Mohtashemi (UK), Apter-Fredericks (UK), Based Upon (UK), Carolle Thibaut-Pomerantz (France), Charles Ede (UK),  Collisart (USA), De BackkerMedieval Art (Belgium), Elle Shushan (USA), Galerie Anne Autegarden (Belgium), Galerie Chenel (France), Galerie Diane de Polignac (France), Galerie Mermoz (France), Geoffrey Diner Gallery (USA), Gordon Watson (UK), H. Blairman & Sons (UK), Hancocks (UK), Hirschl & Adler (USA), JGM Art (UK), Jorge Welsh Oriental Porcelain & Works of Art (UK), Koopman Rare Art (UK), Les Enluminures (USA), Linley (UK), Lowell Libson Ltd (UK), MacConnal-Mason Gallery (UK), Mallett (UK), Mayoral Galeria d’Art (Spain), Michael Goedhuis (UK), Michel Beiny (USA), Osborne Samuel (UK), Peter Petrou (UK), Philip Mould and Company (UK), Robertaebasta (Italy), Robert Young Antiques (UK), Robilant + Voena (UK), Ronald Phillips (UK), Rose Uniacke (UK), Sladmore Contemporary (UK), Symbolic & Chase (UK), The Fine Art Society (UK), The Sladmore Gallery (UK), Trinity House Paintings (UK), Verdura (UK/USA), Wartski (UK), Whitestone Gallery (Japan) and Whitford Fine Art (UK).


    Nazy Vassegh, CEO of Masterpiece London said “Looking at the evolution of the fair from the grass roots stage in 2010 to generating over £100m worth of sales in 2014, I feel our identity as an internationally important cross-collecting fair has been proven and that we are a commercial and cultural success. 2015 will be a seminal year for us and with the continued support of our Principal Sponsor, Royal Bank of Canada, Masterpiece will go from strength to strength.”

     – Georgina Adam, Financial Times and The Art Newspaper

    “In its fifth year Masterpiece 2014 went from strength to strength with an estimated £100 million of art, antiques, design and jewellery sold over the course of eight days. Collectors keenly acquired works across categories and exhibitors from around the world are quickly securing their places for Masterpiece 2015.”  

    – Nazy Vassegh, Chief Executive, Masterpiece London

     

    In 2015 Masterpiece London is delighted to welcome back the Royal Bank of Canada for its second year as the Principal Sponsor of the Fair.

Its success is a testament to the vibrant international art scene, the passion of collectors, exhibitors and curators, and the dedication of those who devote their time and energy to making this show a reality. At Royal Bank of Canada, it is this dedication that we admire most. It is very much in keeping with our dedication to our clients and our keen focus on working with them–from aspiration to achievement.”
