The King of Sculpture
Geoffrey Diner Gallery Photography by Chris Allerton, Masterpiece London 2013
Born in Tunisia in 1934, Phillip King moved to Britain in 1945. He is a sculptor who was part of what was called the 'New Generation' during the 1960s. King has had many retrospective exhibitions over the years, but his next is in celebration of his eightieth birthday.
As part of Masterpiece London, the fair will be displaying a number of King's large scale sculptors in Ranleigh Gardens, on the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea. Although the fair only runs between the 26th June - 2nd July, King's work will remain free to view until the 29th August.
Masterpiece London is now in its fifth year, and will be selling museum-quality art, antiques, jewellery, and design from over a hundred and fifty galleries across the world. It is a chance for collectors to find unique pieces from various eras, and an opportunity for visitors to admire historic artwork.
Standard tickets are £25, but if you fancy getting a look before anyone else, you can book the preview night on the 25th July for £100. There will also be a champagne tasting, and a luxury jewellery and breakfast tour.
