Art-lovers can plan a tour of more than 40 of the capital’s galleries taking part in this year’s London Art Week. The event, which starts on Friday and ends on July 7, sees a range of art, from priceless antiquities and Old Master paintings to work by renowned contemporary artists, go on display.
Exhibitions include The Baroque Face: Rubens to Ribera at Fergus Hall, Master Draughtsmen of the Venetian Settecento at Stephen Ongpin Fine Art, featuring more than 22 drawings by the 18th century Venetian masters Giambattista and Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo, and a survey of French sculpture, The Romantics to Rodin, at Daniel Katz.
Other highlights to catch are Masters of the Field, an exhibition of paintings by British exponents of sporting art, including George Stubbs and Alfred Munnings, at Rountree Tryon Galleries, a fragment from The Marriage of Bacchus and Ariadne by Guido Reni, which was commissioned for the wife of King Charles I, at Moretti Fine Art, and an exhibition of work by 20th century Italian artist Giorgio Morandi at Robilant + Voena. Paintings by the likes of Constable, Turner, Gauguin and Munch will also be on show at an array of venues.
