This for me is the highlight of the year at this branch of the international auction emporium that is Christie's. Multiplied is a three-day fair which takes place towards the end of Frieze week, named both after the enormous exhibition of the Emperor's New Clothes in Regent's Park and most visitors' reaction to it. Multiplied, by contrast, actually exhibits editioned prints by artists of actual talent as opposed to those who aim merely to shock or provoke. It's international with galleries not only from all parts of the UK but also European counties such as Spain and the Netherlands. Galleries such as Flowers have exhibition spaces in both London and New York. It was pressing to see examples from the back catalogues of both the Royal Academy and the Royal College of Art, the latter next to works by artists who have only just graduated. There is some EC Ellen catering from a pop-up cafe.

I wouldn't recommend trying to sell items that you value through Christie's. They tend to keep items for months, don't look after them, let them deteriorate, then return them to you saying they are not good enough for them to sell. If you are visiting Christie's for the reason it is intended (to buy and sell antiques and art) rather than to look at rich people buying things that are over-rated and overpriced, you may be better off trying your local auction house, which incidentally is the advice that they offered me after having kept my painting that they initially valued at £2000 to £3000.

I always pop inside to see the things that are going to be auctioned. Is very interesting as give you an insight of what is up these days... Of course brown furniture is disappearing fast and a mixture of eclectic tastes is coming up... But is a free window shopping inside today taste and culture!

There are other great auctioneers in London, but this one ranks as one of the most celebrated. They sell an eclectic mix of lots and offer a free, no obligation valuation service...

This was a private party held to celebrate a 25th wedding anniversary, 21st and 18th birthdays. An interesting viewing of Terry O'Neill photos of The Rolling Stones and The Beatles which are coming up for auction in early September.
