POETRY in MOTION: Ceramics by Jean Lurçat and Paintings by Georges Bernède
I’ve been lucky to discover a handful of genuine, dedicated galleries in London who have successfully carved out their own niche and as a result have established themselves as an important and valuable staging platform for artists (alive and deceased) to feature in the ever evolving story that is the history of modern art. Whitford Fine Art are one such gallery. Tucked in among the old masters galleries in Duke Street St James’s, just round the corner from a big auction power house, is the modest, hardworking team at Whitford’s. Their shows are always well thought out, well researched and presented with the kind of passion we’d all like to see from London’s art dealers and connoisseur’s.
Enthusiasm exudes in great waves from Gabriel Toso and the sales staff at Whitford’s and is wonderfully counter balanced with the brilliantly dry wit of Director and Founder Adrian Mibus. Throw in the grace, charm and exceptional knowledge of fellow director An Jo Fermon and a Whitford’s PV will always leave you feeling culturally nourished and entertained.
Poetry in Motion runs from 12th Nov – 12th Dec 2014
