The London Original Print Fair will take place in the main galleries of the Royal Academy for its 24th event. It is the longest-running specialist print fair in the world.

Prints have played an important role in the history of art. Before the invention of photography, it was through engravings that many people were introduced to great works of art, otherwise inaccessible to them. Many contemporary artists create original prints as a significant part of their oeuvre - from Tracey Emin to Howard Hodgkin, Lucian Freud to Damien Hirst. Their work sits alongside etchings by Rembrandt, Canaletto and Picasso amongst many others, all of which are for sale at the Fair.

With prints by current students and recent graduates from the Royal Academy Schools and Royal College of Art also on show, the Print Fair offers collectors at every level the opportunity to invest, with works ranging from as little as £100 up to £500,000.
