For the duration of the week lectures will take place including 'What to look for when buying Old Master Drawings, tips and pitfalls' and an exploration in the recent rediscovery of Giovanni Bandini. See the list of lectures here.

Twenty-six dealers will offer pieces ranging from ancient Egyptian sculpture to 20th century drawings. Probably the oldest piece on view will be the Egyptian bronze seated cat, Late Dynastic Period, 25th-31st Dynasty, 715-332 BC, included in Rupert Wace Ancient Art's exhibition The Cat in Ancient Egypt.

Exhibitions include Tomasso Brothers Fine Art's exhibition, devoted to the Grand Tour, which will include a pair of bronzes by Francesco Righetti (1749-1819): Ariadne and Bacchus and Amour et Psyche du Comte Foy, signed and dated 1790. Hill-Stone Inc. of New York will be showing master drawings at The Fine Art Society including Christ Crowned with Thorns by the Genoese painter Domenico Piola (1627-1703) to name a few.

Shown in intimate gallery settings located in Mayfair and St James's, the event promises to be unmissable.

And not forgetting the Old Master paintings & drawings sales this will begin from 8th July at Sotheby's, Christie's and Bonhams.
