London Art Week gets set for summer

The dealer-led festival of fine art, London Art Week, will return to the capital for its Summer 2019 event between June 27 and July 5.

Featuring artworks from antiquity to the 20th century, the event will feature selling exhibitions, art talks and tours in the galleries of St James’s and Mayfair, the traditional heartland of London’s fine art scene.

London Art Week will also coincide with the various Old Master and Classic auctions at the city’s leading auction houses.
