Early, Modern, & Contemporary art on paper under one roof
9 - 12 February 2017 , Royal Geographical Society, Exhibition Road, SW7.
Why the Works on Paper Fair?
Visitors to the Works on Paper Fair can view and buy from some of the best dealers in Early, Victorian, Modern and Contemporary art.
A wide range of original works on paper including watercolours, drawings, prints, and posters can be found at the Fair. This includes all types of pictures drawn by hand, in ink, pencil, crayon, chalk, pastel, gouache or charcoal, and all of our pictures are vetted to ensure the highest quality.
Prices tend to range from under £500 up to £250,000.
This year we were able to present a special exhibition; "Laurie Lee - The Artist"; of loaned work from Lee's daughter Jessy Lee. Visitors to the fair were able to see 31 of Laurie Lee's discovered pictures.
