Last week I spent an inspiring afternoon at Frieze Masters in Regents Park, London.
Frieze Masters coincides with and is within walking distance of Frieze London in Regent’s Park. Frieze London is one of the only fairs to focus only on contemporary art whilst Frieze Masters gives a unique view of the relationship between old and new art. Frieze Masters shows work made before the year 2000 whereas Frieze London shows work mainly post year 2000.
It was the most extraordinary privilege to witness such an eclectic, diverse collection of works by so many artists I admire under one canvas roof! and was so heartening to see so many leading galleries and art dealers showing and selling work of such incredible quality and true beauty. I think one of the most fascinating aspects of Frieze Masters is that you get to see lesser known works by world class artists which may well never be available to public view again. It was almost like being able to glimpse into some of these artists private studios and I came away hugely inspired.
I will definitely be visiting next year and highly recommend it to anyone who admires great art. Where else can you works by see Monet, Ben Nicholson, Lowrie and Schiele in a tent! So exciting! Loved it!!
Here are some of my favourite works from Frieze Masters:
