LONDON.- London Art Week Winter 2020 takes place from Thursday 26th November to Friday 4th December 2020; see special gallery exhibitions around Mayfair and St. James’s, and at our partner museums, and also view important works for sale on the event’s LAW Digital platform. London Art Week Winter will also host its second Symposium, this year celebrating Raphael, the exalted genius of Renaissance art - painter, architect, designer of sculpture and tapestries, and one of the greatest draughtsmen of Western art - the 500th anniversary of whose death occurs this year.

London Art Week, the collegiate event involving more than fifty leading international art dealers, began in 2001. It brings together specialists in drawings, paintings and sculpture, antiquities and the fine arts for the staging of exhibitions and the sharing of ideas and learning. London Art Week went Digital in Summer 2020, and the event website has evolved into an exciting new platform for sharing news, virtual events and academic articles about art of the past 5,000 years, from ancient to modern.

London Art Week Symposium - Raphael
London Art Week inaugurated its first and highly acclaimed Symposium in December 2019, held at the National Gallery; this year the LAW Symposium will mark the 500th anniversary of Raphael's death. LAW is working closely on this edition with Ana Debenedetti, Curator of Paintings and Lead Curator of the Raphael Cartoons project at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Among the subjects under discussion will be:

• Raphael at 500: a missed celebration?, exploring the significance of this anniversary, and of anniversary exhibitions more widely, the impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on them, and how the international museum community has responded;

• Collecting Raphael, exploring the fortune of Raphael and his school in early-modern collections across Europe, focusing not only on the more widely known works on canvas, but also on the afterlife of drawings and other media such as tapestry cartoons, and

• Raphael's Legacy, exploring the legacy of Raphael's designs specifically in the realm of tapestries, focusing on the reopening of the Raphael Court at the V&A, the exhibition Raphael - The Power of Renaissance Images in Dresden, and those tapestries that have remained in Italian collections.

Museum-Quality Works under £10,000
London Art Week is associated with exceptional art, offered by its participating dealers and auction houses whose collective knowledge and expertise is also harnessed and shared through events such as the Symposium, alongside its museum partners, contributing art historians and critics. While many of the museum quality works featured can sell for six- or seven-figure sums, London Art Week is about the best in all categories and it may delight visitors to know that outstanding works can also be acquired for under £10,000. Here we focus on a selection of particularly decorative works, which will look fabulous in the home whether traditional or modern in style, and with the added bonus that they are all of artistic and historical significance.

Stephen Ongpin Fine Art
A beautiful portrait of the French actress Jeanne Silvain by Louis Welden Hawkins (1849-1910) dated 1909.

This delicate portrait of the young actress Jeanne Silvain (1892-1983), executed in pastel, coloured chalks, watercolour and touches of gouache, measures 34 x 30 cm. It is presented in its original carved and gilded frame, also designed and signed by the artist. £8,500

Oliver Forge and Brendan Lynch Ltd
Egyptian cylindrical pottery Jar, Early Dynastic Period, c. 2,600-2,500 B.C.

This 23 cm high jar has a very contemporary look to it despite being nearly 5,000 years old. £3,000

Charles Beddington Ltd
German School, A Caterpillar (Attacus Cecropia), c. 1800, in watercolour, over pen and ink, on paper, 101 × 177 mm Inscribed 'Attacus Cecropia' (lower left) Framed dimensions, 26 x 33 cm £3,800

Galleria Carlo Virgilio & C.
This bronze vase, Welcome Spring, by Italian sculptor Umberto Pinzauti (1886-1960), circa 1915, is 27.3 cm high.

It shows a debt to the New Secession, Germany’s expressionist art group of the art nouveau period. The vibrant sensuality of the vase’s lines, and the poses of the figures in high relief, stand out. The intense, sensual dance of the figures is in dialogue with Poliziano’s famous verses, Calendimaggio - spread across the centre of the vase - recalling the Florentine rite of love. £5,300
