Early, Modern, & Contemporary art on paper under one roof
9 - 12 February 2017 , Royal Geographical Society, Exhibition Road, SW7
Visit the Works on Paper Fair to view and buy from leading dealers in Early, Victorian, Modern and Contemporary art, all on paper. For several of the dealers, this is the only fair they exhibit at.
The wide range of works on paper at the fair includes drawings, watercolours, original prints, and posters.
Prices range from under £500 up to £250,000.
The fair always features a loan exhibition of pictures not normally on display to the public. Our loan exhibition for the 2017 fair is a selection from the superb Eton College Collections.
In 2016 our loan exhibition was "Laurie Lee - The Artist" - drawings and watercolours by the author Laurie Lee, loaned by his daughter Jessy Lee. The exhibition of 31 re-discovered pictures drew a great response..

"Some of the greatest and most important works ever created, are in fact works on paper and form part of an edition." - Collins & Kent International Fine Art
