Castel­lani’s

Country Life Every Week - - Art Market -

A lit­tle closer to Na­ture is a Calder mo­bile with Ga­lerie Ve­dovi from Brus­sels (Fig 5); al­though ‘un­ti­tled’, it is surely a nest-mak­ing rook.

Not nests but din­ners with Di Donna of New York, which of­fers ‘A Sur­re­al­ist Ban­quet’ of paint­ings, sculp­tures and as­sem­blages on foodie themes by Sur­re­al­ist artists in­clud­ing Magritte, whose 141 ∕8in by 10¾in L’ex­pli­ca­tion (Fig 8) will, in­deed, be ex­plained.

The Lon­don Orig­i­nal Print Fair (LOPF) also has its pri­vate view this evening, with the an­nounce­ment of the win­ner of the Hal­lett In­de­pen­dent Ac­qui­si­tions Award en­abling a UK mu­seum or gallery to ac­quire an orig­i­nal print at the fair, at up to £8,000. The short­list in­cludes Gains­bor­ough’s House, Sud­bury; Hat­ton Gallery Great North Mu­seum; New Walk Mu­seum and Art Gallery, Le­ices­ter; Rus­sell-cotes Art Gallery, Bournemouth; and Univer­sity of Dundee Mu­seum. The LOPF con­tin­ues to Sun­day, with 51 in­ter­na­tional deal­ers, gal­leries and pub­lish­ers.

A 1967 Magritte litho­graph with Gilden’s Art Gallery could scarcely be more ap­po­site. It mea­sures 247∕8in by 18½in (sheet), is num­bered 62/107 and is ti­tled Le Sa­lon de Mai (Fig 4 ).

As usual, sev­eral new prints will be launched, in­clud­ing work by Polly Apfel­baum, Glenn Brown, Brian Eno, Tom Ham­mick and Har­land Miller plus Royal Aca­demi­cians Gil­lian Ayres, Tess Jaray and Christo­pher Le Brun PRA.
