“Modern Art remained the biggest segment of the art market in 2019. Encouraged by a strong economic situation along with negative or close-to-zero refinancing rates, the demand for artworks has continued to grow, while the supply has contracted”
Modern British Art sits in the 20th century category alongside impressionist and postwar. Increased interest in British artists such as Hepworth, Riley, Auerbach, and Moore and lately of Hoyland, Heath and Scully is widespread; there is a sudden appeal of these artists to audiences both in the United States and Asia.
Our Art Miami collection features a strong selection of Modern British Art alongside several exciting upcoming artists such as RHED and one of the most exciting artists on the international stage, Banksy. We also feature several internationally collected established mid-career artists including Pip Todd-Warmoth and Peter Monaghan.
Our collection is available to view virtually or in our London Gallery before it ships to Miami shortly. Please contact us if you would like to arrange a time to view.
