London Art Week 2015

Fine Art

London Art Week (3 to 10 July 2015) is the most important gallery-based celebration of traditional art, highlighting the unrivalled quality, riches and expertise available within the galleries of Mayfair and St. James’s. Bringing together over 40 leading art galleries and three auction houses, the event includes a series of dedicated exhibitions and will present a wealth of paintings, drawings, sculpture, and works of art from antiquity to the 20th century, many of which have been hidden from public view for decades.

Johnny van Haeften and Lowell Libson, Senior Committee members of London Art Week: “'London Art Week’ is a key moment of the year which celebrates the resounding importance of the art gallery. It also highlights the position of Mayfair and St. James’s as the global centre of the traditional art market, and the leading destination for expertise. We look forward to welcoming collectors, curators and enthusiasts to this year’s event which will offer the strongest and most diverse selection of art to date.”

A myriad of exciting rediscoveries will be unveiled at London Art Week 2015. Highlights include The Sayer Family of Richmond, 1781, by Johan Zoffany, R.A. (1733-1810), one of the most important rediscoveries in the field of classical British art for decades (Colnaghi); a marble sculpture of Lucretia by Philippe Bertrand (1663-1724), artist at the Court of Louis XIV, which has been unseen since it was exhibited at the Salon de Louvre in 1704 (Galerie Sismann); the only known drawing by Cesare Magni (1511-1534), pupil of Leonardo da Vinci, to be firmly attributed to the artist (Martin Hirschboeck); and Madonna and Child by Simon Vouet (1590-1649), otherwise known as The Madonna Molé, whose existence was known by scholars through an engraving, but whose whereabouts were unknown until now (Maurizio Nobile).

Exhibitions presented for London Art Week 2015 include Portraiture through the Ages (Agnew’s), French Drawings from the 17th to 19th Century (Katrin Bellinger at Colnaghi), Reclaiming Antiquity; creation and revival between the Fall of Rome and the Renaissance (Sam Fogg), Fragments: From the Tiber to the Ganges (Oliver Forge and Brendan Lynch), Paintings from Georgian Britain; A Golden Age (Richard Green Fine Paintings), On Copper (Johnny van Haeften Ltd.), Ignacio Pinazo (1849-1916). A Valencian Master of Light (Galería José de la Mano), From the Salon (Daniel Katz Gallery), The Painter’s Menagerie and The Sculptor’s Menagerie (Rafael Valls Ltd. and Tomasso Brothers Fine Art), Shapely Forms: Vessels in Antiquity (Rupert Wace Ancient Art), and From Merchants to Monarchs: Frans Pourbus the Younger (The Weiss Gallery).
