Art Antiques London
12th – 18th June 2015
Albert Hall Memorial West Lawn, Kensington Gardens, SW7 (opposite the Royal Albert Hall)
Website: www.haughton.com
Set in the beautiful parkland of Kensington Gardens, the Fair’s Pavilion is positioned next to the Albert Memorial and opposite the Royal College of Art and The Royal Albert Hall; it is the first fair to take place on the historic site of the Great Exhibition of 1851.

The sixth edition of Art Antiques London will bring together more than 60 exciting international art and antiques dealers offering exceptional works of art, among them many of museum quality. Furniture, paintings, drawings, sculpture, textiles, ceramics, glass, clocks, watches, jewellery, objets de vertu, silver, antiquities and Asian art are among the many different categories included and for sale.

The superb lecture programme is a particular feature of the Fair, underpinning its academic credentials and always receives acclaim from collectors and museum curators. On 15th June, lectures will be devoted to Waterloo – in Face to Face: Dame Rosalind Savill in Conversation with the Duke of Wellington, the Duke will consider the Battle of Waterloo (with 18th June being the Bicentary of the first Duke’s defeat of Napolean at Waterloo), as well as talking about the celebrations at Apsley House and the collections and the artistic legacy of the first Duke. Napolean – The Man and the Phenomenon: A Lecture by Count Adam Zamoyski will look at Napolean’s Egyptian campaign, his looting of works of art from all over Europe, his foundation of the Louvre and more.

The Fair will also host Study Days for The Silver Society, The English Ceramics Circle and The Jewellery Historians together with a number of other important lectures.

Admission to the Fair costs £15 – tickets can be bought in advance via www.haughton.com or at the door.
