LAPADA, the world’s largest association of art and antiques dealers, celebrates its 45th anniversary this year—it certainly doesn’t look its age, with its annual Art & Antiques Fair coming up in London’s exclusive Berkeley Square in September, and a vigorous program of conferences and lobbying between its teeth.  The LAPADA symbol of the golden chandelier remains the mark of an experienced, knowledgeable, trustworthy dealer, backed by a strong advisory, mediation and lobbying association.  Arts &...

Who are the young artists and entrepreneurs disrupting the art world? Arts & Collections reveals some of the most exciting innovators shaking up the scene today  For centuries, the art world has been rigidly organised, with galleries, auction houses and museums controlling the way art is promoted, and young artists struggling to break through or to make a living out of their work.  All that now seems to be changing. With the development of the...

Singer Debbie Harry is 75 next year, and with the launch of her autobiography Face It comes a chance to assess the artistic iconography of the ultimate ‘80s rock chick From Andy Warhol to H.R. Giger, singer Debbie Harry’s punky look has been co-opted by the art world as iconic of the glossy, perhaps superficial 1980s. Now nearing 75 years of age and still working as a singer and actress, Harry has produced her first...

Despite the rise of the mobile phone and smartwatch, traditional wristwatches are by no means obsolete. In fact, driven by the passion of many small, individual designers, there’s a powerful movement to bring back the wristwatch as a statement of style, personality and individuality. One of the most striking stories is that of Atelier Wen, a young brand formed by a team of French and Chinese designers with the aims of taking high-quality Chinese mechanical watches into the mainstream. It’s an open secret that even in a...

While investment in stocks, shares and bonds remains an uncertain option, alternative investments, such as art, cars, coins and stamps, have become increasingly attractive. The rate of return can be spectacular, and this is true nowhere more than in the world of wine bottles. Between 2012 and 2017, for instance, the Petit Mouton 2011 vintage appreciated from £690 per case to £1,831, an increase of 165 percent.  Last year, two of just 600 surviving bottles...

This time, Stampex International celebrated two leading female philatelists within the show’s...

Over 200 works from the private art collection of George Michael are to be auctioned by Christie’s in London this March. The proceeds will help to continue the singer-songwriter’s philanthropic work.  The late George Michael, who died suddenly on Christmas Day in 2016, was a keen visitor to galleries and artist’s studios, where he developed friendships with many of the Young British Art Movement (YBA) artists whose work he admired deeply. His impressive collection represents...
