To coincide with the Chelsea Flower Show, the exhibition titled, The Mayfair Flower Show, seeks to highlight the long heritage of fair-going in the West-end. The original fair took place within a stones throw of Sotheran's on St James's, later Haymarket, and was an annual fortnight long May Fair.
In this exhibition we are able to showcase are vast collection of Japanese Botanical woodblock prints, bringing our very own flower show to the heart of Mayfair once again.
