Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Now in its eighth year, Frieze Masters features over 130 international galleries selling seriously high-end art from the ancient era to the end of the twentieth century. This is the place to tick off major names in art history, from Rembrandt to Picasso to Hepworth and beyond. Last year's fair featured a stunner of a painting by Artemisia Gentileschi, while the headline act this time around is a portrait by Botticelli. But if the $30 million starting price is a little out of your budget here's the thing they don't tell you about Frieze Masters: it's so worth going to even if you're broke as a church mouse. It's is one of the few chances you'll get to see super valuable antiques and artworks outside of a red-roped gallery or museum context. Just please, please remember not to knock anything over while dream-furnishing your imaginary mansion.
