Uglow’s sitter in this painting recalls how the artist put her in a swimming cap as he disliked her short hair. Though she found the end portrait unflattering, the composition is certainly interesting and welcomes greater focus on her facial features. Euan Uglow, ‘Sue Wearing a Blue Swimming Cap’, 1978-1980

Richard Hamilton (born UK, 1922-2011)
In Horne's House - Study III, 1981
Graphite and wash with collaged piece of
black paper

In this print study Hamilton created a tapestry
of historical styles and subjects to illustrate an
episode from James Joyce's Ulysses (1922).
It shows the artist returning to an earlier study after a period of some thirty years, having
previously abandoned the project when he
could not find a print publisher willing to take
it on due to the prohibitive cost of resetting
the text.

Hamilton represents this
approach visually by moving from the birth of
art (here represented by the white outline of a
hand recalling prehistoric rock art) through
styles reminiscent of Giovanni Bellini and Paul
Cézanne, to the Futurist drink sipped by an
Ancient Egyptian figure. Joyce's description of
Ulysses as his attempt to render Homer's
myth 'sub specie temporis nostri (in the aspect of our times) was a formative influence on Hamilton's own approach to making art.

Final days of excellent show "Pushing Paper" at British Museum supported by Bridget Riley.

Excellent show of
Eduardo Paolozzi 1924-2005 @hazlitthollandhibbert

Eduardo Paolozzi, Scottish-born of Italian parents, studied at Edinburgh College of Art (1942-43), and at the Slade (1944-47). He had his first one-man show (of drawings) at the Mayor Gallery in London while still a student, the proceeds of which enabled him to move to Paris, where he lived until 1949. While there he met Giacometti, Arp, Léger, Brancusi and Braque, and was influenced by the work of the Dadaists and Surrealists. His interest in popular culture was stimulated by the art brut of Jean Dubuffet. @ HAZLITT HOLLAND-HIBBERT LIMITED

Colourful displays on @raweditions stand (55) at British Art Fair with works by artists including Gilbert & George, Damien Hirst, David Hockney, Howard Hodgkin, Michael Craig Martin, Julian Opie, Grayson Perry, Bridget Riley and David Shrigley.

Launched in early 2017 by Tanya Grigoroglou, RAW Editions was conceived as a celebration of the intrinsic qualities of print media and an exploration of the endless possibilities of their raw materials: paper, wood, copper, acid. It was born from a desire to promote intellectually stimulating editions of unparalleled technical mastery. In its current form, RAW Editions is an eclectic curation of prints and multiples in a reposeful and understated online space.

RAW Editions joins the specialist dealers at British Art Fair showcasing work by Britain's greatest artists of the past century.

Manifold Editions

Launching now at British Art Fair at Saatchi Gallery, London: 'Fall in Love I' and 'Fall in Love II' by Jonathan Yeo.

These two new editions represent the first collaboration between Manifold Editions and Jonathan Yeo, inspired by the artist's 'Leaf Works'; an extension of his P**n Collage series. Upon closer inspection, the falling leaves reveal themselves as fragmented genitalia from pornographic magazines, challenging viewers' predispositions towards po*******hy.

Visit our stand #14 at British Art Fair this week to view the editions in person, or visit our website for further information.

David Inshaw: Looking Back, Looking Forward

The ground floor gallery space at #BritishArtFair 2019 is given over to a retrospective of paintings by David Inshaw, one of this country’s most distinguished figurative artists whose iconic painting The Badminton Game (1972-3) is one of the best-loved pictures in Tate Britain.

Inshaw lives in Wiltshire and paints the surrounding chalk downland with insight and affection. When he first moved there some 40 years ago, a girlfriend introduced him to the works of Thomas Hardy and he realized how nature could become the vehicle and context for his most deeply-felt experiences. In some ways he can be seen as a contemporary interpreter of Hardy’s Wessex.

The exhibition is curated by author @AndrewLambirth @Spectator art critic and the The Redfern Gallery

Don't miss this precious show, coming right after the British artist's successful show "Mind Zero", which closed just a few weeks ago at Saatchi Gallery

Our Story

Established in 1988, #BritishArtFair is the only fair to specialise in Modern and Post-War British art presenting an unrivalled section of works by 20th century giants such as: Bacon, Freud, Frink, Frost, Hepworth, Hitchens, Hockney, Hodgson, Lanyon, Lowry, Moore, Nash, Piper, Riley, Scott, Spencer and Sutherland. Alongside there is also a large selection of contemporary work by established British names from the YBA generation such as Hirst, Emin and outsider artists like Banksy. The leading dealers showing at the fair are only too happy to share their knowledge with visitors. A number exhibited at the first Fair back in 1988. Andrew Lambirth, the highly respected art critic of The Spectator wrote: 'The only art fair I make an effort not to miss is the 20/21 British Art Fair ... It's the only gathering of dealers I find really enjoyable and inspiring, with a wide range of high-quality Mod Brit on show, some of which even manages occasionally to seem affordable'.

The next Fair will be held at Saatchi Gallery 3 - 6 October 2019 .
