"The 20th Century British Art Fair"
1999-09-29 until 1999-10-03
Royal College of Art
UK United Kingdom
The 1999 20th Century British Art Fair will take place at the Royal College of Art, Kensington Gore, London from 29 September to 3 October and this year will celebrate one hundred years of British art.
It is the only fair to cover British art from 1900 to the present day and for five days, under one roof, art lovers can enjoy and marvel at the talent and diversity of painting, sculpture, photography and ceramics which incorporate 20th Century British art.
Visitors will be able to judge for themselves who are the greatest British artists of the century. Names such as Auerbach, Bacon, Freud, Frink, Hepworth, Hockney, Moore, Nash, Sickert, Spencer spring to mind but there are without doubt others who, as yet, have not been given the full recognition they deserve.
The 60 leading dealers will show historic British art - from the Scottish Colourists and British Impressionists to post-war abstraction and pop art - up to contemporary art. All work is for sale and prices range from a few hundred to many thousands.
The fair is organised by Gay Hutson and Angela Wynn with the help of an advisory committee whose chairman is Sir Anthony Tennant. Other members are dealers Camilla Braka, Julian Hartnoll, Peter Nahum and Maureen Paley; Dr. Judith Collins from the Tate Gallery, arts advisor Julie Lawson and arts journalist Colin Gleadell.
