Masterpiece London 2022

Masterpiece London is the unmissable art fair where visitors can view and buy the finest works of art, design, furniture and jewellery - from antiquity to the present day. The fair offers an unparalleled opportunity for new and established collectors to discover exceptional works for sale, from international exhibitors spanning every major market discipline.

Shapero Rare Books & Shapero Modern will be exhibiting once more and look forward to welcoming you to our new, larger stand at the Royal Hospital Chelsea showground. 

'The Royal Hospital Chelsea becomes the meeting point of creatives and collectors during Masterpiece London. What sets it apart is the juxtaposition of art and design from all periods and origins.' (Tony Chambers, ES MAGAZINE)
