Online | 23 February–7 March 2017

This carefully curated grouping of over 100 lots aims to celebrate an array of artists, past and present, who have turned to paper as their medium of choice. Versatile, ubiquitous and capable of an infinite range of expressions, working on paper provides artists the opportunity to mine their creativity and, in the process, discover something that occasionally alters the course of their practice. Whether it be drawings, paintings, photographs or prints, works of art that use paper as their chosen support are prized for their sense of innovation.
