The fair, which takes place at The Royal Hospital Chelsea from June 28-July 4, falls in the midst of the two-and-half-week stretch of auctions and exhibitions that represent the height of London’s busy summer season.

Since its debut in 2010, Masterpiece has retained the good opinion of many dealers, despite being one of the more expensive events on the circuit. Reports of last year’s event were generally positive with news of first-time buyers and sales across the board. Several dealers reflected that, eight years in, it had struck the right balance between luxury event and traditional trade fair.
