LONDON.- The 37th edition of London Original Print Fair has drawn to a close at its new venue, Somerset House, with visitor numbers increasing by 16% from the last in-person edition. The Fair has reported exciting sales, including works by modern and contemporary artists including Andy Warhol, David Shrigley, and Baroque engraver Wenceslas Hollar.

Peter Harrington Gallery had a stellar week, selling a print of Andy Warhol’s Shoes (1980) for £150,000. This is one of five prints from Warhol’s Shoes portfolio, which were Warhol’s largest-sized and among his most iconic and significant commercial print series. The gallery has also sold works by Tracey Emin including I Loved My Innocence (2019) for £6,000 and The Beginning of Me (2012) for £4,000.

Bernard Jacobson Gallery saw their best Print Fair for several years, with prints by abstract artist Robyn Denny and English painter and printmaker Richard Smith seeing excellent sales. The gallery placed works by abstract artists Robert Motherwell and Sam Francis and celebrated British painter William Tillyer in major collections.

Daniel Crouch Rare Books exhibited an incredible single-owner collection of over 200 works by the engraver Wenceslas Hollar, one of the largest in private hands. They made numerous sales from this collection including his Jerusalem (£10,000), Dead Mole and Seasons (£12,000).

Jealous Gallery launched renowned artist David Shrigley’s new work Live Each Day As If It Were Your First. Created exclusively for the London Original Print Fair, this highly anticipated work by Shrigley saw eight-hour queues and sold out on the day of launch. The gallery also saw excellent sales of Chris Levine’s new and exclusive works commemorating the Jubilee. Jealous Gallery founder Dario Illari says, The Shrigley launch at LOPF was a great success, it’s brilliant to see the artist’s fans anticipating and enjoying his work. We’re thrilled to have sold out of the work, and our thanks to London Original Print Fair and Somerset House for the opportunity and their help with this launch.

Julian Page and Austin Desmond Fine Art saw works sold by Lucian Freud and Terry Frost. They launched artworks by Marcelle Hanselaar, Alexander Massouras, James Rogers and Kate McCrickard, with multiple sales of all of them including an acquisition of the McCrickard by the British Museum.

The British Museum also acquired Private View from Verbatim, a new woodcut by printmaker Jake Garfield, which harks back to William Powell Frith’s famed 1881 work A Private View at the Royal Academy.

An eye-catching work at Eames Fine Art was snapped up early: Howard Hodgkin’s etching with carborundum and hand colouring In an Empty Room. The work was sold to a private collector for in excess of £10,000.

Cynthia Corbett Gallery, a first-time exhibitor at the LOPF, displayed a solo exhibition of works by Deborah Azzopardi with several sales of Queen, a silkscreen print made in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, including one to a major international collection; and Shoe, featuring the monarch’s bespoke coronation shoe made by Roger Vivier.

TAG Fine Arts launched Adam Dant’s new book Political Maps at LOPF, with a book signing by the artist during the Fair. The gallery has seen great sales of Dant’s Zeb Soanes Presents Stories from The Shipping Forecast (2022), a novel and diverting map created in collaboration by the artist and Zeb Soanes, the famous voice of the UK’s Shipping Forecast.

Director of London Original Print Fair Helen Rosslyn says, It has been a pleasure to return to a physical event and we have been delighted with how the London Original Print Fair has worked at Somerset House. It has been heartening to see such great attendance and sales at the Fair this week, and hugely encouraging for the industry as we emerge post-Covid.
