Tali Amitai-Tabib, as well as paintings by Patrice Palacio and New York based Jérôme Lagarrigue. The Metropolitan Opera, in New York, commissioned a large painting by Jérôme Lagarrigue for their last production of Tosca and photographer Tali Amitai-Tabib was commissioned to do a series of photographs on the Camondo Museum in Paris, which were exhibited at the Museum of Jewish Art and History in Paris.

Stephanie Hoppen Gallery is showcasing artists Anne Penman Sweet, Ronald Dupont, Franois Bard and photographers Hendrik Kerstens, David Chow, and Patrizia Medial. Franois Bard’s dog paintings are rare and so sought after that they never usually make it to a gallery show. Stephanie Hoppen Gallery has managed to secure one to bring to Art London 2010. Hendrik Kerstens is self taught and only photographs his daughter. He has a photograph showing in the National Portrait Gallery. His work was included in an Alexander McQueen fashion show, who was the subject of one of his commissioned portraits for the New York Times.
This year’s charity partners include the Almeida Theatre and Amber. Amber gives unemployed young men and women the chance to sort out their problems and make a fresh start. The Almeida Theatre is showcasing the work of photographer Simon Annand, with images from his book ‘The Half’, named after the 30 minutes before curtain-up, when he had unprecedented access to the leading actors backstage including Cate Blanchett and Jonny Lee Miller.
Organiser Ralph Ward-Jackson, director of Art London, said, “Art London provides a diverse mix of art from around the world under one roof for discerning collectors, artwork for pure enjoyment, statement pieces for the home or office, or an alternative to under-performing traditional assets, from which you can derive pleasure.”
