Abstract art, mid-century furniture and contemporary design all under one roof at new London gallery

Anny Shaw, The Art Newspaper, June 25, 2021

In the heart of Mayfair, opposite the back entrance to Sotheby's and occupying the Georgian townhouse that Bernard Shapero's book dealership was housed in for 25 years, a new type of gallery has opened.  

 

On the ground floor at LAMB, which launched in its new incarnation this week, an eclectic mix of abstract paintings dating from the 1920s to 2020 are grouped under the title To Situations New, a line from an Emily Dickinson poem but also a nod to the famous 1960 exhibition on British abstraction,Situation, which was held at the Royal Society of British Artists in London.
