The London Original Print Fair is the longest-running specialist print fair in the world.
The 25th Fair will be the largest ever, with some 60 exhibitors including new participants from America and a specialist in Japanese prints. Dealers, Print Workshops and Publishers come from France, Germany, Ireland and America as well as Britain.
This year the Fair will include first-time exhibitors from New York, Mary Ryan Gallery and The Old Print Shop, inspired by the reaction to the British Museum’s exhibition 'American Scene: Prints from Hopper to Pollock' in 2008, as well as international dealer Israel Goldman, a specialist in Japanese Prints.
Anniversary events will include a special loan exhibition drawn from the collection of the British Museum by the long-standing Keeper of Prints & Drawings, Antony Griffiths. It will be a very personal selection, bringing together some lesser-known gems which have a special appeal.
