2 Frieze Masters 

The art fair that people in the know says is the best now – its certainly the plushest  and its also the one where galleries get to  show off a bit, we really like the decor, the carpet and the general calm of the fair which is a great compliment to the crazy energy of Frieze London featuring over 120 of the world’s leading galleries, from ancient to modern. Opening Wednesday to Sunday
