MASTERPIECE LONDON 2013, AT THE ROYAL HOSPITAL CHELSEA
27 JUNE - 3 JULY 2013
We would like to welcome you to London in the coming weeks for Masterpiece London 2013. Enlivened by dining from Le Caprice and The Ivy, and now in its fourth year, the fair returns to showcase exquisite fine art, antiques and design.
This nude by Henri Lerolle is one of a number of modern works the gallery will exhibit; we shall also present a room of paintings by the 1920’s Spanish artist Federico Beltrán-Masses, several of which are new to the market and have never been to auction. A stunning Delaroche, Enfants d'Edouard (Edward V and the Duke of York) is a famous image known in the Wallace Collection as The Princes in the Tower. Our painting was exhibited at the New Orleans and Taft Museums in the 1990s and more recently in exhibitions at museums in Marseille and Ontario.

FEDERICO BELTRAN-MASSES: Blue Nights and Libertine Legends
3 OCTOBER - NOVEMBER 16, 2012
Stair Sainty Gallery is pleased to announce the first major UK retrospective since 1938 of the late Cuban-born, Spanish artist Federico Beltrán-Masses, who painted poetic, carnal women in dark-blue nocturnal shades, in Paris in the 1920’s and 30’s. The exhibition will include his two most famous paintings, Salome and La Maja Maldita, exhibited at the 1920 Venice Biennale, as well as his portraits of Hollywood legends Joan Crawford and Douglas Fairbanks Jr, and the painter's allegorical subject pictures which often took their inspiration from Baudelaire.
A fully illustrated 178 page hardback catalogue of the exhibition is available from the gallery upon request.
