Masterpiece Art Fair 2019 - Icosahedron

Masterpiece London 2019 opened on June 27th and runs until July 3rd. A virtual tour of the event is available on the website here.

At this unmissable art fair visitors can view and buy the finest works of art, design, furniture and jewellery – from antiquity to the present day. The Fair offers an unparalleled opportunity for new and established collectors to discover exceptional works for sale across a range of price points from over 150 international exhibitors and across every major market discipline.

Held at the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, this year’s Fair, the 10th, presents 155 exhibitors including 22 new galleries. The entrance showcases a sculptural installation by Phyllida Barlow, in conjunction with Hauser & Wirth, referencing the supersized ‘pom-pom’ works she first developed in the 1990s.

Exhibitor stand talks showcase the diversity and quality of works for sale, giving insight into the artists and creators, their times, techniques and styles.

Every exhibit at Masterpiece is vetted by a team of over 150 leading international specialists comprising scholars drawn from all areas of the art world, including museum curators, conservators, auctioneers, dealers and galleries. Twenty-seven individual Vetting Committees examine each piece in their own field to ensure that the exhibit is in good condition, clearly labelled, and worthy of exhibition at Masterpiece.
