The 20/21 British Art Fair, the only fair which specialises exclusively in British art will take place from 10 – 14 September at the Royal College of Art, Kensington Gore, London SW7.
The fair is a pivotal date for collectors of British art and continues to attract an enviably loyal following in London's busy art fair calendar. Its particular strengths lie in the excellence and range of Modern (1900-1945) and Post-War art (1945 – 1970), however, the fair also has a wide selection of contemporary art (1970 onwards).
Each year the 57 exhibitors bring to their stands a great variety of work, often privately sourced and kept back especially for the fair. The result is a niche event that annually showcases a truly eclectic selection of paintings, prints, drawings, sculpture and a stand dedicated to photography.
The Royal College of Art is an ideal setting for the fair and is often called 'the spiritual home' of British art. On offer will be work by most of the leading names in 20th century British art alongside a large selection of contemporary work, for example: Alan Davie, Edward Burra, Elisabeth Frink, Patrick Heron, David Hockney, Howard Hodgkin, Peter Lanyon, Henry Moore, John Piper, Bridget Riley, Graham Sutherland and Keith Vaughan.
At the fair, the history of the 20th and early 21st century British art is represented: Vorticists, Camden Town, Scottish Colourists, Bloomsbury Group, surrealism to post-war abstraction, pop art, the YBA's and more recent graduate work. The price range is from a few hundred up to many thousands.
'The only art fair I make an effort not to miss is the 20/21 British Art Fair.….it is the only gathering of dealers I find really enjoyable and inspiring with a wide range of high-quality Mod Brit on show…' (Andrew Lambirth, The Spectator).
The fair is once again proudly sponsored by EFG Private Bank.
