London Original Print Fair 2010
29 April—3 May 2010
In the Main Galleries, Burlington House
Open daily between 10am and 6pm
Thursday and Friday late evening opening until 8pm
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.
