Levy-Dhurmer Tag

The beginning of December sees a flurry of activity in London's galleries and sale rooms in the form of Old Master Sales Week.  It is an opportunity for the Art World to focus on fine art by established artists from the past whose works have stood the test of time and whose legacies are clear for all to see.  Stair Sainty are delighted to be showing paintings at our gallery, 38 Dover Street, by Old Masters including Boucher, Subleyras, Oudry, Goya and Loir, as well as 19th century artists such as Delacroix, Degas, Manet and Levy-Dhurmer.   Come and visit out gallery weekdays from 10am to 6pm....

Gustave was the guardian of Paul Gauguin and perhaps the lover of his mother; he helped Gauguin financially, while introducing him to a wide social circle.
