London Art Week

London Art Week June 29 2022 [embedded content]Video: LAW I'm heading to London this weekend to see the Old Master sales, and will also look in on some of the dealers exhibiting as part of London Art Week. It's a good event, most of the galleries have special exhibitions on, and if you're lucky, there might be a free canapé or two. You can see who's exhibiting here. Things that have caught my eye include, the above portrait of Mrs Margaret Smith by George Romney, at Libson & Yarker, which is about as good as Romney half-length portraits get, the sort of thing you might expect to see in the Frick Collection. And my friend Miles Wynn Cato has a number of new discoveries, including works by Thomas Gainsborough, and the below fascinating life portrait of John Locke, done in pastel in 1696 by his friend Dr Alexander Geekie, and unrecorded since 1727.
