The Petworth Park Antiques and Fine Art Fair

'Still Life with Lobster and Lemon'

The Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair returns for its fifth year to The Marquee, Petworth Park, from Friday 10 to Sunday 12 May 2019.

Organised by The Antiques Dealers Fair Limited, the fair is held in a purpose-built marquee in the grounds of Petworth Park. 

The Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair features over 50 exhibitors from around the country, all bringing their finest wares.

A wide range will be available to browse and buy: the finest period furniture, jewellery, paintings, silver, sculpture, lighting, vintage watches, clocks, ceramics, glass, including art pieces, and other works of art form the ancient to the contemporary. The majority of the exhibitors are members of the UK's two leading associations for professional art and antique dealers - BADA and LAPADA The Association of Art & Antiques Dealers.

Art for sale includes a signed Marilyn announcement card by Andy Warhol for the exhibition 'Andy Warhol: A Print Retrospective, November 21, 1981' published by Castelli Gallery, New York, 1981 from Haynes Fine Art - London & Cotswolds. By contrast, Ottocento has Still Life with Lobster and Lemon, an oil on canvas attributed to Flemish artist Joris Van Son (1623-1667).

Animals are depicted in art abound at this year's fair including a cold painted bronze Lapin by Franz Xavier Bergman, on the stand of specialist Garret & Hurst Sculpture. Local Sussex dealer Moncrieff-Bray Gallery have a lifesize Mountain Goat, made from scrap metal, by Helen Denerley.

Local Petworth residents may be particularly interested to see the paintings on show with John Robertson. He is devoting his stand to the work of former Petworth resident John Heseltine (1923-2016), his American born wife Pam Masco (1953-2018) and their friend Fred Laurent, who were all painters and commercial illustrators employed by publications to bring their stories to life.
