Dropped past the BADA antiques and fine art fair in Duke of Yorks square. This is the 21st anniversary of the fair with some serious works of art in display and antiques both modern and classic. Most of the obviously quite important pieces displayed were unpriced, which was shame from my point of view as I love to play the “guess how much” game…. Silver, jewellery, furniture, oil paintings and also watercolours on loan by the 18th/19th century artist William Payne. Some of the period furniture and artifacts were amazing..
My personal favourite is this one pictured here by FRANZ VAN MONTFORT, 1889-1980 of the Belgian School, titled “Le Lilas Blanc”. Oil on canvas, signed, inscribed and dated 1920 (149.5 x 109 cms) from John Bennett Fine Paintings W6.
How nice it would be to have a spare £32,000…..
