Masterpiece London will return to the South Grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea from 30th June – 6th July 2022, in partnership with Royal Bank of Canada.
Attracting established collectors and the culturally curious, Masterpiece is one of the world’s leading multidisciplinary art fairs, offering the finest works of art, design, furniture and jewellery, from antiquity to the present day.
The fair provides an unparalleled opportunity to discover exceptional works for sale from our pre-eminent galleries and specialists; the centrepiece of a unique week of cultural experiences in the heart of London. The vetting of all exhibits at Masterpiece is undertaken to uphold the integrity and success of the Fair, giving confidence to all who visit, whether experienced collectors or those new to buying.

Masterpiece Presents provides a platform for innovative, immersive works of art at the entrance to the Fair. This year’s Masterpiece Presents will be announced in Spring 2022.
In 2019 Masterpiece showcased a sculptural installation by Phyllida Barlow, in conjunction with Hauser & Wirth, referencing the supersized ‘pom-pom’ works she first developed in the 1990s. One of Britain’s leading contemporary female artists, Phyllida Barlow is well-known for using found materials like plaster, cardboard and cement, which turn the conventions of traditional sculpture on their head.
Masterpiece Awards are awarded to those exhibits and stands that are judged to be outstanding – perhaps undiscovered, rare, provenanced, and of beauty. The 2022 Masterpiece Award winners will be announced during the Fair.
A virtual tour of the last event, in 209, is available here.
