Shapero Modern, was founded in 2014 under the guidance of Gallery Director Tabitha Philpott-Kent, and specialises in Modern & Contemporary prints, multiples and works on paper, with a particular focus on American 20th-century art.
The gallery runs a programme of exhibitions from both primary and secondary market artists, with six exhibitions per year, including collaborations with contemporary living artists as well as masters of 20th-century post-war prints and works on paper.
Shapero Modern exhibits at major international Art Fairs worldwide, including TEFAF Maastricht & TEFAF New York, Frieze Masters, Masterpiece London, Art Miami, the IFPDA Fine Art Print Fair and the London Original Print Fair at Somerset House. Meantime, Tabitha and her team are on hand at Shapero Modern’s Mayfair gallery in the heart of London to advise on all aspects of the art market and collecting.

Riallaro, from Imaginary Places, Frank Stella
Frank Stella, one of the most influential and experimental printmakers of the 20th century, has spent decades creating prints and multiples as an essential part of his artistic output. During this time he has made more than three hundred editions and used a huge array of ground-breaking techniques to create this vast body of work.
This year, Shapero Modern’s IFPDA exhibition explores Stellaʼs creative output from his earliest works and follows his artistic process through his deep connection with the master printer Ken Tyler, from minimalism to maximalism.
ʻI knew absolutely nothing about printmaking when I started out, and I don’t really know anything about it now. People forget that when you’re making art, you just screw around.ʼ (Frank Stella)
