20/21 British Art FairThe 20/21 British Art Fair offers works for sale by well known modern British artists from the 20th and 21st centuries and distinguishes itself by being the only fair for British art which focuses on Modern and Post-War art as well as featuring contemporary work from the 1970s onwards. 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.
