Harry Brioche Northumberland Landscape

In this month’s issue

A Northumberland Landscape by Harry Brioche - the painting of choice for Renaissance Publisher Wol Balston at The Affordable Art Fair 2009

Welcome to the first issue of Renaissance: The Fine Art Collector. As the name tells you, Renaissance is all about collecting art, whether painting, photography, sculpture or installation, from historical masterpieces to contemporary must-haves. Each month we will bring you interviews with the world’s top artists and dealers directly involved in the art world. Our experts will tell you about the latest trends in the art market and rising stars to look out for. We hope you will join us regularly and let us know your thoughts on where art is going.

This month we begin with a look at African contemporary art after the resounding success of Bonhams’ New York sale, which explored a totally new genre. Our profiles feature abstract landscapist Robin Richmond, Grandy Artist and InterContinental Park Lane Hotel Artist-in-Residence Nick Jeffrey, and we talk to London dealer Martin Summers about his 40 years in the art business. Collecting features include the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, collecting photography and how to begin buying art. Add to that information on what’s on where, and columns by experts from gallerists to painters, and you have an exciting mix.

Come and join us!
