Works on Paper

Here's a date for your 2014 diary. From 6 to 9 February the Science Museum in London will be holding its 5th Works on Paper Fair (CLICK). All types of pictures drawn by hand will be included: watercolours, prints, posters, ink, pencil, crayon, chalk, pastel, gouache or charcoal. Prices start at £250. This original drypoint of a fashionable Edwardian lady perusing pictures at an art exhibition caught my eye: Les Trois Crayons de Watteau by Paul Helleu. It would set you back £11,500. Not a fair for punters seeking bargains. Admission costs £15. No concessions for silver surfers!
