The LAPADA Art & Antiques Fair returns to Berkeley Square this month from 15 – 20 September, offering an unmissable opportunity to source some of the world’s most coveted works of art, antiques, design and decorative arts from more than 100 members of LAPADA, the Association of Arts & Antique Dealers. Everything for sale at the fair has been vetted by a committee of specialists to ensure authenticity and buyer confidence. We’ve picked the top 5 things to see this year:
The Parker Gallery
An 18th-century painting catalogued as being by a “Follower of Joshua Reynolds” at auction and later found to be a genuine self portrait by renowned British artist Joseph Wright of Derby will be unveiled by The Parker Gallery at LAPADA.
Whitford Fine Art
Three bathers by Polish-Parisian artist Caziel, a friend of Picasso, is among the highlights of Whitford Fine Art’s LAPADA offering. The Mayfair Gallery has a broad selection of the cubist artist’s vibrant oils.
A little morbid perhaps, but the huge and remarkably complete sabre tooth cat skull or Machairoduc gigantus, is sure to draw some attention. It dates back to the late Miocene, circa 5 – 10 million years ago.
Designed by Paoul Henningsen and made by Andreas Christensen Flyger in 1932, this Mira Flygel PH grand piano seems almost too pretty to be played.
CJ Martin Coins
These Greek Gold Amphora drop earrings are as old as they are beautiful, dating back to the Hellenistic period, circa 3rd century BC.
