Highlights from Masterpiece London 2014
Masterpiece London 2014 was a unique experience for a first-time visitor like me. Happened weeks ago but is still very vivid as it featured all kinds of flashy and interesting artefacts and everything you can imagine – from fine arts, applied arts, decorative arts, jewels, watches even high-end vehicles! In some way, it was like walking through history but with a bit more of an upscale shopping mall experience. From Greek pottery, Roman mosaics, Renaissance paintings, and collector items such as Da Vinci's signed books up to modern-day jewellery pieces, it's all breathtaking and all pretty, except that Masterpiece is really for those who have money to spare to add to their collection.
Despite this great shortcoming from my end, that didn't really stop me from hunting down some art pieces that I haven't seen before. Here they are: (sorry I didn't take pictures of the vehicles!)
