Lucie Kitchener, managing director of Masterpiece London, said, “Masterpiece London has established itself as one of the world’s leading fairs for the finest works of art from antiquity to the present day since its first edition in 2010. We are excited at the prospect of expanding Masterpiece London internationally.”
