MASTERPIECE LONDON 2014, in association with RBC Wealth Management, announces its strongest exhibitor line up to date ahead of the 5th edition. 10/01/14
Masterpiece London returns to the world’s capital of culture in June 2014 to celebrate its 5th anniversary edition. The 2014 offering of exquisite art, antiques and design from across the world, with over 90% of exhibitors returning, cements Masterpiece London’s role as a leading international fair which is pioneering in its advocacy of cross-collecting.
Graham Southern, Director at Blain|Southern, said “Last year marked the gallery’s first appearance at Masterpiece and the fair was undoubtedly a resounding success. What makes this fair so unique is the range of artworks on display, where one might unexpectedly encounter anything from classical to the contemporary, creating an immersive opportunity to experience and learn about art for both the dedicated collector and the viewing public.”
The fair will showcase the finest master works available, creating an unmissable opportunity for international collectors and connoisseurs. The fair will take place from 26 June – 2 July 2014 (with a Preview on Wednesday 25 June) in the South Grounds of The Royal Hospital Chelsea, London SW3. Tickets are £25 and can be purchased from the Masterpiece website www.masterpiecefair.com.

Of the 2013 fair, Peter Osborne, Director of Osborne Samuel said “Masterpiece
has become a highlight of our summer season and 2013 was an exceptionally
successful event for the gallery. The fair has become an essential destination
for British collectors and this year we also saw many more visitors from USA as
well as mainland Europe, and China. It is the most elegant of fairs and
provides visitors with a fabulous feast for the eyes; and for serious
collectors, a wonderful choice of the very best things in their chosen field.
As well as meeting old friends, every year at Masterpiece we meet new
collectors from around the world, and we are already acquiring masterworks for
the 2014 event, which can’t come soon enough!”
and artworks of the highest order will be presented across multiple disciplines;
paintings and works on paper, ceramics, rare
maps, sculpture, photography, jewellery, important furniture and contemporary design will
all be offered for sale. All works will be stringently vetted by a committee of
experts before the fair opens, giving buyers every confidence in their choice.
Harry Fane from Verdura added “Masterpiece has established itself as one of the ‘must attend events’ of
the London season. Everyone will tell you something different about
participating but for Verdura, we find the fair beautiful and it attracts an
interesting and diverse group of visitors who buy our jewellery. What more can
we ask for?”
Masterpiece Marie Curie Party will
take place on Tuesday 1 July at 19.00, the second year that the charity has
been the beneficiary. In 2013 the Midsummer Party, chaired by Heather Kerzner, raised a record of
£840,000, beating Marie Curie’s target of £500,000 by a phenomenal amount.
Nazy Vassegh, CEO of Masterpiece London, said, “We are delighted to welcome back such a
significant portion of our 2013 exhibitors. Our 5th fair will mark a
milestone for us within the international art fair circuit and this level of
support highlights the strength of our cross-collecting offering”.

SEASON'S GREETINGS FROM MASTERPIECE LONDON 13/12/13
European Treasures presented by Masterpiece London 18/10/13

The pavilion featured a selection of masterpieces from our world-class exhibitors and illustrated the breadth of European works created over the last 3,000 years in disciplines including antiquities, old master paintings, modern art, jewellery, antiques and design.
Masterpiece London would like to thank the following exhibitors for contributing to this exciting venture: Ariadne Galleries, Carter Wright, Daniel Crouch Rare Books, Dickinson, Geoffrey Diner Gallery, The Fine Art Society, Peter Finer, Mayoral Galeria d’Art, Osborne Samuel, Ronald Phillips, Röbbig Munich, Robilant + Voena, Rose Uniacke, Wartski.
Rare Meissen AR vases at The European Treasures Pavilion presented by Masterpiece London (Fine Art Asia 2013, 4-7 October, stand N10) 17/09/13
Set of three AR vases Once owned by the Marquise de
Parabère, mistress of Philippe II, Duc d ’Orléans
(1693–1750), Meissen, Germany, c. 1733/34
Masterpiece London is delighted to be able to showcase a wonderful selection of works from our internationally renowned exhibitors in Hong Kong this October. The European Treasures Pavilion presented by Masterpiece London can be found at stand N10 throughout Fine Art Asia 2013, which takes place from 4-7 October with a Preview on 3 October.
One of the highlights of the pavilion will be a rare set of Meissen AR vases c.1733/34 (pictured above), presented by Röbbig Munich.
The monogram AR on the vases indicates that this set was made especially for the king or was ordered
by him. Consequently, how the vases were to be used, that is whether they should be displayed in one of the sovereign’s palaces or should serve as a diplomatic gift, was entirely at his majesty’s discretion.
The forms of the vases are based on Japanese Arita porcelain and on models from the Chinese porcelain metropolis Jingdezhen. The type of the full-bellied vase with lid can be traced back to Chinese Deckelschultertöpfe (high-shouldered lidded pots), which themselves were based on bronze vessels. The tall, baluster-shaped vases are modelled on archaic bronze ritual vessels of a type known as ‘gu’. The asymmetrical compositions on the vases, painted in what was known as the ‘old Japanese style’, indicate that the painter had made a close study of Kakiemon porcelain.
