Our galleries are now closed to the public but the building has never looked more beautiful thanks to our collaboration with collector JJ Martin, founder of fashion brand La DoubleJ, and so we wanted to share some of that beauty and creativity with you. In this video, specialist Hannah O’Leary gives you a private look at our galleries and introduces some of the highlights from our upcoming Modern and Contemporary African Art sale (27 - 31 March Online). We’re delighted to present a group of masterworks from the most sought after artists from across the African continent, including Ben Enwonwu, Irma Stern, El Anatsui and Yinka Shonibare. The exhibition in our galleries has been further enhanced by an imaginative collaboration, inspired by the sophistication, colour and vintage patterns of collector JJ Martin, founder of fashion brand La DoubleJ.
