The 32nd edition of the British Art Fair opens on September 29th presenting its annual showcase of the very best Modern British and Contemporary British Art, elegantly installed throughout the museum-style interiors of Saatchi Gallery, London.

Since 1988 British Art Fair has been the flagship fair for Modern British Art, representing celebrated artists including Bridget Riley, Francis Bacon, Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, David Hockney, Terry Frost, John Piper and many more, with fine and rare works released to the art market especially for the event.

The fair took a new direction last year under the ownership of Ramsay Fairs, with the introduction of fresh initiatives. The 2022 edition welcomed over 10,000 visitors.
