LONDON.- Masterpiece London confirmed that planning permission has been granted for this year’s inaugural fair which will take place at the former Chelsea Barracks, London SW1 between 24-29 June 2010.

Residing opposite the prestigious Royal Hospital Chelsea and ideally situated in the heart of central London, Masterpiece London will be held in a Stabilo-designed bespoke structure on the site. Visitors will enjoy a remarkable array of works of art, from fine and decorative arts to contemporary design, vintage cars and other premium collectors’ items.

Nicola Winwood, Fair Director of Masterpiece London says: “We are delighted to confirm that Masterpiece London will be taking place on the site of the former Chelsea Barracks in 2010. In collaboration with the Royal Hospital Chelsea, we have been working extremely hard over the past few months and we look forward to delivering a world-class event for the local community and indeed the city of London.”

This exciting news follows the recent announcement of a number of newly-confirmed exhibitors who will be participating at the Fair. Joining A La Vieille Russie (USA), MacConnal-Mason, Marchant, SJ Phillips, Peter Finer and the Tomasso Brothers are the distinguished names of Anthony Woodburn, Cahn International (Switzerland), Offer Waterman, Galerie Steinitz (France), Vanderven & Vanderven (The Netherlands) and Wartski. These illustrious names, amongst others, will be exhibiting alongside the established founders Mallett, Ronald Phillips, Apter-Fredericks and Asprey as Masterpiece London seeks to showcase some of the greatest works on a scale not seen in the capital since the Great Exhibition of 1851.

Thomas Woodham-Smith, Chairman of the Masterpiece London Board comments: “With the green light from Westminster City Council, we are very pleased that we can continue the development of this new and exciting event, which will showcase the very ‘best of the best’, setting a new standard in terms of elegance, quality and expertise. Over the next month a number of major high-profile collaborations and details of the Masterpieces to be showcased at the event will be announced.”

Masterpiece London is set to attract art lovers and enthusiasts on a global level, as the Fair reinforces the capital as a leading artistic and cultural hub, whilst showcasing a plethora of leading international names, including Fabergé, Lalique and Cartier to name but a few.
