Master of all trades
The Royal Hospital Chelsea plays host to an exceptional week of cultural, culinary and social experiences for Masterpiece London. Gathering together over 160 of the world’s top galleries, this leading art fair is a must for anyone interested in the creative arts.
Masterpiece London is unique among art fairs because of the breadth of creativity on display, with exhibitors covering painting, sculpture, jewellery, furniture and objets d’art – from antiquity to the present day. Everything on show has been vetted by an expert panel drawn from academia, museums, auction houses and galleries.
The Royal Hospital Chelsea becomes the meeting point of creatives and collectors…what sets it apart is the juxtaposition of art and design from all periods and origins.

For those wishing to learn more, there are guided tours available from the experts at Sotheby’s Institute of Art as well as a programme of events including talks by leading exhibitors to champagne tastings hosted by Perrier-Jouët.
While you explore, look for displays and pieces that have been granted a Masterpiece Award. Award categories include Outstanding Display, for imaginative exhibition stands, and Exhibits of the Year – which may have been chosen due to their rare provenance, craftsmanship or beauty. Past winners have included Gallerie Marcilhac, who displayed a superbly crafted art deco guéridon table from 1920.
Whether you have an eye for painting, sculpture or furniture design, you will find plenty to inspire you at Masterpiece London.
