One of the most important annual art and antiques event in London, the Winter Fine Art & Antiques Fair at Olympia, will return for its 22nd year on Monday November 12 at 4pm until November 18 2012.
The event, supported by the UK's top trade associations, BADA and LAPADA, will welcome both new buyers and experienced collectors to Olympia to view the artwork and antiques of over 130 exhibitors, just in time for Christmas and gift buying season.
Highlights from this year's exhibition will include the signed and dated oil on canvas portrait of Isadora Duncan by Paul Swan for £15,000, a burr elm card table, circa 1815, by the prominent Regency period furniture designer, William Trotter, and a quirky Darwin inspired cane with a palm wood shaft, silver collar and a handle carved into the shape of an ape holding a skull, which opens its mouth and turns its head upon the pressing of a button.
The event is expecting to draw in approximately 24,000 visitors, along with 3,000 buyers and a handful of familiar names, such as; Jemima Khan, Sir Paul Smith, Sir Peter Blake and others, at the preview night of the fair.
