Hotel Cafe Royal
68 Regent Street, W1B 4DY London, United Kingdom
The second event in this three-part Collecting Art series will have a specific focus on art works on show in London galleries during the months of October and November — enabling guests to go and view the recommended works post discussion. A range of genres, periods, and price points will be addressed, in order to accommodate varied approaches to collecting art.

Providing expert advice on how to collect from London’s galleries, this course will reveal what to look for, with practical advice from starting out, to taking the next steps in building a collection. This is a great opportunity to ask experts for advice in an intimate setting.
