Ambrose Naumann began dealing in fine art alongside his father Otto Naumann in 2016, and has co-exhibited as Naumann Fine Art at TEFAF. Paolo Antonacci Roma will bring a selection of 19th century paintings to London including a romantic view of Tintern Abbey. F.

Teaming up with local dealer Trinity Fine Art this Summer is new participant Georg Laue, Kunstkammer Ltd (Munich/London) to show a highly important Renaissance Court Casket from the famed Lothian collection of Newbattle Abbey, near Edinburgh. The Casket is by the Nuremberg Master of Perspective, one of the earliest Northern European cabinetmakers to use perspective in marquetry.
The exhibitions at LAW Summer 2019 cover a broad variety of art spanning more than 5,000 years. Early Art At Ariadne Galleries Taking Shape – Form and Function in Ancient Sculpture will include a Mesopotamian weight in the form of a duck from the second millennium BC. Oliver Forge and Brendan Lynch Ltd. presents Works of Art from the Ancient World - around 35 Greek, Roman and Egyptian works of art dating from 400 BC to 400 AD, some of which come from famous collections. At Sam Fogg, Medieval Art in England is a major new exhibition devoted to English art from a period spanning the 6th to the 16th centuries, when England was a key player on the cultural stage and a thriving hotbed for artists whose surviving works together tell the story of immigration, trade and cross-cultural ex- change. S Franses will show The Lost Tapestries of Charles I, owned or commissioned by him, some when he was Prince of Wales, and other smaller textiles of the period, including a newly discovered tapestry of “Dido and Aeneas” from a major lost series of Mortlake from circa 1640’s. Many of them have been in private hands and not seen for decades.
Centrepiece at Ben Elwes Fine Art is a beautiful sculpted white marble portrait relief roundel of Jenny Lind c1866 (the Swedish Nightingale, featured in The Greatest Showman) by American artist Margaret Foley (c1827-1877). Sculpture highlights will also be found at dealers including Tomasso Brothers Fine Art, Brun Fine Art and Galleria Carlo Virgilio & C. which will feature works by well-known and well-regarded Italian artists of the 20th century, including Lucio Fontana, Fausto Melotti and Leoncillo, with a small selection of 21st century works.
