No longer at Tour & Taxis but in the NW corner at Heysel) and Maastricht for TEFAF. Both these wonderful fairs deserve to be well attended as they have been …

Happy New Year and a Preview of the Art Market in 2021

As has been recorded countless times, the art market in 2020 was well and truly up-ended by the bizarre times in which Covid forces us to live.

The Summer Impressionist, Modern & Contemporary Art Auctions in London: 18th-26th June 2019

With only a handful of weeks between the May auctions in New York and this week’s London sales the auctions are really rather limited.
