Caroline Penman took over the fair in 1982 and says: ‘This year we’re celebrating our London heritage and the part this great city has played in contributing to the art and culture of our country. Our exhibitors will be showing a number of specially selected London made or London related pieces amongst their stock, and silver, paintings, sculpture and posters will feature strongly.’
The Chelsea Fair offers period and contemporary classics in an inspiring mix of traditional antiques, ceramics, glass, silver and jewellery, Decorative Arts, Mid-Century Modern and British and European modern art. Thirty-five specialist dealers exhibit.
Among them will be Barclay-Sampson with a range of original vintage posters. Dating from the Golden Age of posters in the early and mid-20th century, these will include a special section with a London theme and several early London Underground posters by Harry Beck, the artist famous for creating the logical map of stations in its popular and current familiar form. Lately designated a London Design Icon, it is on sale for £750.
