International Platform for Paintings, Drawings and Sculpture – July 4 to 11 2014
London Art Week, launched last year, is the platform that unites Master Drawings and Sculpture Week and Master Paintings Week. This collaboration, which proved so successful in 2013 resulting in major sales, brings together some fifty specialist dealers across the fine art disciplines and three major London auction houses. London Art Week illustrates the extraordinary range and quality of fine art from the 15th to 20th centuries available on the market and strongly underlines the unrivalled connoisseurship and expertise to be found in the city. During LAW special exhibitions and other events will be staged by all the participants. The 2014 event will be held from 4 to 11 July, a date that should be in the diaries of collectors, curators and enthusiasts from all over the world.
The Crown Estate is delighted to be renewing its support for Master Paintings Week in 2014. The twenty-two leading dealers and three international auction houses are all situated a short walk from one another in the heart of London’s Mayfair and St James’s, the latter forming a core part of The Crown Estate’s holdings. James Cooksey, Head of St James’s Portfolio, said: “The Crown Estate is delighted to support for the second time this important event in London’s art calendar which makes such an important contribution to the art community in St James’s and helps to promote the area’s unique culture and heritage”. Johnny Van Haeften, one of the co-founders of MPW, commented: “We are delighted that The Crown Estate has renewed its support of MPW, recognising its value in maintaining the cultural traditions and expertise to be found in London, and particularly in St James’s”.
