Enthusiasts of art, design and antiques are expected to flock to the grounds of the Royal Chelsea Hospital later this month for Masterpiece London 2013 – one of the capital's most prestigious and exclusive art shows.
Now in its fourth year, Masterpiece London has established itself as an event of the highest possible calibre – attracting collectors, curators and exhibitors from around the world. Described by organisers as a "forum for distinctive design and aesthetic excellence", the fair promises participants not just an opportunity to shop for exquisite exhibits but also to mingle with the art world's foremost names.
Masterpiece London boasts of its stringent commitment to quality and assures those poised to make purchases that every work on offer has been vetted by a panel of passionate experts. Buyers can act with confidence – whether their interest lies in portraits, sculptures, antique clocks and pocket watches, jewellery or designer furniture.
The fair takes place in a custom-built pavilion on the spectacular South Grounds of the Royal Chelsea Hospital. This sumptous bespoke venue comfortably houses not just the exhibitors, but also an array of dining and drinking options that include Scott's Seafood and Champagne Bar, the Mount Street Deli and Le Caprice – so guests can be assured they won't want for world-class cuisine.
A programme of educational and entertaining talks is also scheduled, including lectures from exhibitors and representatives of the Courtauld Institute of Art. Every day for the full week of the fair, a highlights tour will take place – introducing new arrivals to the event's biggest attractions.
Masterpiece London 2013 kicks off on June 27th, following an exclusive preview on the preceding afternoon. It runs until July 3rd.
The Royal Chelsea Hotel is easily accessible from a number of luxury London hotels and ideally placed for those using public transport. The closest Underground station is Sloane Square on the District and Circle lines, which is a ten-minute walk from the venue.
