This year London Art Week takes place 3rd - 8th July to accommodate changes in the busy art fair calendar and to allow international collectors and curators to be able to enjoy all that London galleries and auction houses have to offer in July (please note this is a correction to dates given in the Silver Members Summer Planner).
London Art Week is a major showcase of the best the art market has to offer from leading international galleries and auction houses, in London and abroad. LAW aims to offer the very best paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture and objects, dating from Antiquity to the 20th Century.
This year LAW has adopted a theme of Music and Dance, following on from Revolution and Renewal in 2021, to be celebrated in an exhibition on the LAW Digital website.
Encourage and support your residents to visit the site - links at the bottom of this blog.
Discuss the art and music together and discover what meaning each has for your residents and colleagues.
Regular LAW exhibitors are joined by new exhibitor Miles Wynn Cato and returning exhibitors Moretti, Rountree Tryon and Stuart Lochhead Sculpture.
Highlight works in the LAW Digital Music and Dance exhibition will be a preliminary drawing
for one of Thomas Rowlandson's (1756-1827) 26 illustrations to William Combe's 'The Dance
of Life' (published 1817) at Guy Peppiatt Fine Art, and at Daniel Katz Gallery, a magnificent painting of Sappho recalled to life by the charm of music by Merry-Joseph Blondel (1781-1853), dated 1828.
A monumental early 19th century six-light candelabrum centrepiece with a piping satyr, made by Paul Storr (1771-1844), will take centre stage at Koopman Rare Art.
Augmenting London Art Week’s special Music & Dance theme is an exciting partnership between London Art Week, the arts hub Cromwell Place and the globally-renowned Philharmonia Orchestra, to present a series of unique chamber concerts surrounded by the finest works of art.
Experience the sublime compositions of Scarlatti, Mozart and Beethoven performed by a specially-created string trio of the Philharmonia’s leading musicians: on violin, Zsolt-Tihamér Visontay, Joint Concert Master of the Philharmonia Orchestra; Yukiko Ogura, Principal Viola and Karen Stephenson, No. 2 Cello.
Make it more personal, using your 'about me' documents, identify those with a background in the arts, exhibits, music, dance and/or performance.
