    A collection of small-scale European sculptures from antiquity to the modern period will be shown by Tomasso Brothers Fine Art at the Pavilion of Art & Design in Berkeley Square, London, from October 14-18 October.  Carefully chosen to appeal to the collectors and enthusiasts of 20th century design and arts that PAD attracts, the works in bronze, marble, wood and a variety of media will be exhibited as a contemporary collector’s cabinet in a modernist-style room setting.

    Highlights include a fine pair of 18th century ivory statuettes of Flemish Baroque painters Sir Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) and Sir Anthony Van Dyck (1599-1641), by James Francis Verskovis (d.1768); an exquisite pair of bronze figures of Mars and Venus by the French sculptor Sebastien Slodtz (1655-1726) and a striking modern work of a female figure by Peter King (1928-1957), a prolific artist, peer of Caro and Frink, exceptional sculptor and assistant to Henry Moore.

    “We are excited to be exhibiting at PAD London for the first time. We believe it is important to reach out to new collectors by presenting Master sculpture in an environment with which they are more familiar,”said Dino Tomasso, gallery Director. “We’ve designed a modernist-style collector’s cabinet, very different to our classically-inspired stands at fairs such as TEFAF and Masterpiece.”
