It's a chance to see and buy works by highly respected artists like Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and David Hockney, all displayed at the prestigious Royal College of Art. Since the fair first started in the 1980s, art buying has changed from being the exclusive pastime of the rich to being something we can all join in on. Undoubtedly, fairs like this have helped. The big names of the last two centuries are all here with Henry Moore alongside Damien Hirst. But there are also more 'entry level' pieces starting at a few hundred pounds. The focus is on painting and sculpture rather than the wild fringes of conceptualism, and there will be exciting pieces to covet from the brightest talents of recent times.
