Frieze Masters (1)

Last year I was asked to take the RA patrons round Frieze Masters.   It’s not an easy task because an art fair is necessarily a pot-pourri full of the unexpected.   Last year the highlight was Hans Kraus showing us his Julia Margaret Cameron album, a nearly complete set of her photographs with inscriptions, as well as the discovery of a dealer selling Eskimo art.   This year, our favourites were Sam Fogg’s stand, which had a very beautiful Spanish wooden head:

And a French early sixteenth century painting:

Danny Katz had a beautiful Spanish crucifixion:

And we especially enjoyed the kunstkammer of Peter Freeman and Georg Laue, which had an amazingly delicate 17th. century South German Turned Cup, still with its original case:

And a mid eighteenth-century Spanish head of Saint John of Sahagún:
