The fair, which is unique in that it features only art work rendered on paper, has gained a fantastic reputation over the years as one of the most vibrant and innovative platforms for dealers specialising in early, modern and contemporary art, with prices ranging from under £500 all the way up to £250,000.

Taking place at the Royal Geographical Society in the upscale west London district of South Kensington, this year’s fair is presenting a typically varied selection of art this year, among which the Eton College collection stands out more than most.

Containing some of the finest works from the classic period of English watercolour painting that can be seen anywhere in Britain, the collection’s appearance at this year’s fair represents an opportunity to see watercolours which are rarely on view to the public. In fact, some of the pictures have never before been publicly displayed.

As has become traditional, the fair will also feature a full programme of daily talks, with key speakers for this year including writer David Boyd Haycock, art critics Frances Spalding and Andrew Graham-Dixon, and printmaker Anne Desmet, RA.
