Scheduled for the last week of January, the event coincides with the major Old Master auctions and scholarly events focused on drawings. It is a week dedicated to historic art, where collectors, scholars, museum curators and dealers travel to New York from around the world to view artwork and participate in the events around the city.
Our mission is to foster appreciation, enjoyment and study of pre-twentieth-century artworks and antiquities in the Western European tradition. By creating the Henry Clay Fricks, Archer Milton Huntingtons and Isabella Stewart Gardeners of the future, we safeguard and increase the rich legacy of the great collectors of the 19th and early 20th centuries. By using an on-line platform to disseminate new research, exhibitions and learning experiences, we bring together scholars, institutions, and collectors, and reach out to a wider audience through web-based public engagement initiatives.
An eye-opening and unique opportunity to come and explore, enjoy and discover world-class art in the heart of London. Hosted across more than forty of the capital's most notable galleries, as well as three leading auction houses, we will be welcoming visitors from around the globe to experience our world class art up close. With a myriad of objects on display, from ancient sculptures to Old Master drawings and Impressionist paintings, there will be something for everyone whether you are a seasoned collector or just curious to learn more about art.
