For many art-lovers, the beginning of July is a date in the diary as the Master Drawings London, a series of exhibitions across the capital, gets up and running. It also represents an opportunity to nourish one’s collection as the exhibition is timed to coincide with the major auction houses opening their doors to begin their major drawings sales. The exhibition spans St. James’s, Mayfair and Bloomsbury and incorporates works from The Renaissance to the present day.
2010 marks the year that Masters Drawing London celebrates its tenth anniversary. Inspired by Crispian Riley-Smith, the event has flourished over the years to the point where Master Drawings New York, the sister event, has been launched across the pond. Master Drawings London takes place from the 3-9th of July across twenty of London’s finest art houses.
