Annabel’s – Matteo’s Mayfair, London

We were tasked with curating and hanging the artwork for the beautiful new Italian restaurant Matteo’s within Annabel’s. We selected the very best pieces from the original 44 Berkeley Square collection.

Bateman cartoons hang alongside paintings by Paul Colin, Augustus John, Alfred Munnings, Glyn Philpot and Ian Fleming to name but a few. All are lit by the original distinctive picture lights and arranged in a fashion faithful to the original club.

Prints by Peter Arno hang in hand-painted pink frames along the staircase and corridors.
