Artist's Sir Peter Blake and Sir Michael Craig-Martin remember the incredibly influential modern art dealer Leslie Waddington.
‘Our relationship was not just of artist and dealer — Leslie and I became good friends,’ says artist Michael Craig-Martin, remembering the legendary British art dealer who served as chairman of Waddington Custot galleries, and whose personal collection, offered at Christie’s on 4 October, is set to be a highlight of London Frieze Week.
For Sir Peter Blake, Waddington — who he worked with for many years — proved to be ‘a fantastic dealer’, unafraid of taking risks and backing art that he believed in. ‘I joined Leslie in about ’74.
