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....

Masterpiece London 2018, the high point of the London Art Season, opens with week.

Portraitist of the great figures of the avant-garde art world of his time, master of the still lifes and, finally, a symbolist entranced by Wagnerian legends and mystical fantasy, Fantin-Latour cannot be placed in any particular category. He was certainly not constrained by the disciplines of academicism but, although a friend of and even exhibiting with the impressionists, his exquisite paintings of flowers and fruit reflect a much older artistic tradition. Now a new exhibition of his work (Fantin-Latour, à Fleur du Peau) has been staged at the Musée du Luxembourg (closing on 12 February 2017), which not only includes all aspects of his painted oeuvre but a series of photographs.
