We were delighted to exhibit at the BADA Fair 2019 in Duke of York Square this March. It is a marvellous venue and a very well run fair. We received many compliments about our stand and the drawings on show which were heartening and much appreciated. We sold a number of works in the first few days and enjoyed a steady stream of business throughout the fair and afterwards.
Seeing our regular customers again is always a great pleasure, and this year we also met several new collectors. It is always most interesting to find out how people approach their collecting as it is so individual. Some collectors are very disciplined and narrow down their field to the extent that finding something that fits the collection is a triumph. I struggled to find a drawing for the knowledgable collector of rural boys clothing from the nineteenth century to whom I much enjoyed talking (Joshua Cristall, whose work I like very much, tended to draw rural girls). Others take a much broader approach but know immediately when they find something which will enhance their collection. But all collectors share a passion for their chosen field, and that I have in common with them.
