British art from the 20th century is in good supply across London this autumn.
Pangolin London, the King’s Cross sculpture gallery, opened in 2008, and its anniversary show (September 26 to November 4) represents both Contemporary and 20th century artists such Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003).
His bronze Sitting Couple (C93) from 1989 is among the works on offer at Fifteen: An Anniversary Exhibition, where it is available for £1.2m + VAT.
It is one of an estimated 5000 works that the gallery has handled, released through 60 catalogues and 90 exhibitions.
The anniversary show comprises more than 35 sculptures, drawings, paintings and ceramics by 20th and 21st century British artists. Nigel Hall, ceramicist Jason Wason, and William Tucker, who works in bronze, are among those featured.
In 1985, Chadwick helped establish the foundry Pangolin Editions, which is in Stroud. The foundry has cast works by artists such as Eduardo Paolozzi and Damien Hirst.
The gallery and the foundry are affiliated, allowing artists and collectors to follow works through the whole process of commissioning and creating.
In St James’s, ceramics specialist Albert Amor is staging an exhibition opening on September 5 featuring Anne Gordon, Marchioness of Aberdeen, known as the ‘Cabbage Lady’.
It is the firm’s second show on her pottery and porcelain models of animals, plants, fruits and vegetables.
The show is combined with an offering of early pieces by Devon potter David Cleverly, the ‘Mouse Man Potter’ who has produced pottery models of animals and comical figures since 1979. The catalogue launches on September 5.

On the same day, John Swarbrooke Fine Art opens an exhibition on Modern British landscapes at Cromwell Place, South Kensington.
Shared Horizons examines how different artists responded to the same places. It compares pictures by Ben Nicholson and Christopher Wood depicting Cumberland, and scenes of the south of France by Matthew Smith and Augustus John.
Also included are works by Lucy Harwood, Paul Nash and his brother John.
For those keen to see an even wider selection of Modern British art, the British Art Fair runs at Saatchi Gallery from September 28 to October 1.
