Masterpiece 2017 is always a highlight of our exhibition calendar, and this year certainly did not disappoint! We had visits from our artists, such as Astor Milan Salcedo, our delightful clients past and present, as well as an opportunity to introduce Trinity House to some new friends. We’re now delighted to show you some new official shots of our stand at A35!
Degas’ Portrait de M. et Mme. Louis Rouart turned heads on our outside wall at the stand. It is a very rare piece from the artist, surprisingly large in its size for Degas. It certainly depicted what you come to expect at Masterpiece! The piece – one of the last portraits Degas created – shows Degas’ talent for capturing human relationships like no other, he presents a private moment in Madame and Mousieur Louis Rouart’s relationship.
Our Samuel John Peploe also attracted some great intrigue! This extraordinary artist is normally instantly recognisable for his still life work, this piece however is unusual for Peploe, it’s a huge piece and a nude painting. Whilst not expected for the artist, it was instantly appealing to our visitors for its uniqueness, and the only one of its style at Masterpiece. See more details on this sophisticated piece.
Georgia from our London gallery reflects back on the event – “What we really like about the show is there’s truly something for everybody there. Masterpiece have a schedule of talks and events, where you can learn about anything from Picasso to Ancient African masks, it really gives an exclusive feel! It’s not just an art fair, it’s refreshing; if you want to learn about art you can, if you want to buy or sell you can, and it’s not just about paintings but fashion too. You can also find art to suit all budgets.”
We’re very excited for next year’s fair and in the meantime if you’d like to find out more about this exclusive event or any of the pieces we had on show, please do get in touch with us.
