The London-based fine art consultancy John Jones, which provides services including bespoke picture framing and fine art conservation, plans to open a new centre in north London next spring incorporating an exhibition space. The company’s collection includes works by Richard Hamilton, Francis Bacon, Paula Rego and Andy Warhol.
The firm has appointed Cassandra Needham to be its exhibition curator. Needham previously worked at Nottingham Contemporary and the Whitechapel Gallery in London. “The John Jones building, based in Finsbury Park, will also include extensive studio space for frame design, collection care, research and conservation work,” says a project spokesman.
John Jones framed Francis Bacon’s Three Studies of Lucian Freud, 1969, which sold for $142.4m at Christie’s New York in November 2013.
