London Original Print Fair

The London Original Print Fair (LOPF) was founded in 1985 to provide an unrivalled opportunity to view and buy original prints spanning five centuries, from top international dealers, publishers and studios. After 35 years at the Royal Academy of Arts, LOPF has moved to a new venue for 2022, and will take place in the elegant galleries at Somerset House in the Strand. Artists at the Fair include old and modern masters, from Dürer, Rembrandt and Canaletto to Whistler, Matisse and Picasso. Prints by today's leading artists are also for sale, including works by celebrated printmakers David Hockney, Cornelia Parker, Grayson Perry, Paula Rego and Bridget Riley.

Returning to the London art calendar from 26 - 29 May 2022, The London Original Print Fair has moved to a new venue, the elegant galleries of Somerset House in the Strand, coincidentally the first London home of the Royal Academy of Arts.

The purpose of the Fair is to promote prints as collectable works of art. Printmaking has been instrumental in the development of art since the 15th century and the wide span of prints on sale at the Fair sets contemporary prints in their historical context.
