I exhibit at the E.T.C. book fair in London at the Royal National Hotel each month and have been doing so for the last 30 years. I have sold works on paper to many of the National Museums and Galleries in Britain and abroad including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the School of Art Museum and Galleries, Aberystwyth and the State Library of Victoria and the Baillieu Library, The University of Melbourne, Australia among others. My website at http://www.vincentgbarlow.co.uk specialises in works on paper and books illustrated with original graphics and artists prints. Business by internet and book fair only.
