Masterpiece London, Royal Hospital Chelsea

Masterpiece London is the unmissable art fair at which visitors can view and buy the finest works of art, design, furniture and jewellery, from antiquity to the present day. The Fair offers an unparalleled opportunity for new and established collectors to discover exceptional works for sale across a range of price points from over 150 international exhibitors and across every major market discipline. It also happens to be quite the event on the London social calendar.

Earlier this week, Nicky popped by, twice, to do some imaginary dream shopping and to catch up with some long time gallerist friends. These are a few pieces and stands that caught her eye…

This year Masterpiece showcased a sculptural installation by Phyllida Barlow (above left), in conjunction with Hauser & Wirth, referencing the super sized ‘pom-pom’ works she first developed in the 1990s.

Carefully combining works from across genres and eras Axel Vervoordt’s stand included substantial furniture by celebrated Brazilian designer José Zanine Caldas, including this 3m long Caldas table from 1979.
