“The elegant galleries of the Royal Academy of Arts provide the finest backdrop for the Fair, and its President and many of the Academicians are printmakers. It is thus an institution which has played an important part in the current renaissance of printmaking.”

Gordon Cooke, Chairman

The London Original Print Fair provides an unrivalled opportunity to view and buy original prints spanning five centuries, from top international dealers, galleries and studios. 

LOPF’s convivial atmosphere in the Royal Academy’s Main Galleries provides the perfect setting to engage with the 50 exhibitors, who offer a wealth of specialist knowledge for new and experienced collectors alike. 

Artists include old and modern masters, from Rembrandt and Canaletto to Whistler, Matisse and Picasso. Prints by today’s leading artists are also for sale, including works by celebrated Royal Academician printmakers including David Hockney, Cornelia Parker, Grayson Perry and Christopher Le Brun PRA. Other highlights at the London Original Print Fair 2017 include postwar American prints and the latest editions from galleries across the globe.
