Master Paintings Week
The 3rd Master Paintings Week will take place in London from 1 to 8 July. This is a collaboration between London's top auction houses - Bonhams, Christie’s and Sotheby’s - and 23 commercial galleries in Mayfair and St James’s, all of which will hold special sales and exhibitions to showcase the unrivalled art expertise to be found in London. Click the title link for a list of participants. The press release for Master Paintings Week has already introduced me to to a lesser-known Dutch old master: Jan Daemen Cool (1589-1660). His An Unknown Lady (1634) reminds us that Lady Gaga isn't the first wealthy woman to indulge herself with silly fashions and certainly won't be the last.
