British Art Fair

Beryl Cook - Bouillabaisse in Marseilles (2006) detailThe 20/21 British Art Fair, now in its 19th year, will be opened at the Royal College of Art by John Humphrys at 5pm today: Wednesday 13 September. "Lovely to see you all here, possums". Whoops! That's Barry. Who's John? Never mind. The Fair covers British art from 1900 to the present day and is the market leader for Modern Brit. art. Expect to see loads of rubbish, but you'll also find the latest gem from Beryl Cook (detail above) and an excellent bronze sculpture by Jacob Epstein: Portrait of Peggy Jean (1928). The Fair's at The Royal College of Art until 17 September. Admission: £8 (silver surfers £5). Ripoff!
