Walking around the streets in the immediate vicinity of Gagosian one might be forgiven in thinking that the centre of the commercial London art scene has definitely shifted from Cork Street to North Mayfair. Gagosian has galleries either side of Grosvenor Hill, the one in the north side with access down a side street, is the larger of the two currently housing an exhibition called Picasso's Minotaurs and Matadors. The large glass doors opened by a flunky access a reception area with a few catalogued on display. Beyond a series of rooms displaying works influenced by the bullfight or Greek myth from many diffferent periods of Picasso's long career and in many different media ranging from oil paintings, prints and sculptures. Between galleries in a corridor space a montage of documentary films about Picasso can be seen whilst reclining upon a long sofa. Such a comprehensive display matches a major exhibition in a national gallery.

I loved the extensive Picasso exhibition on thr Minataur and Bullfighting. The gallery is a bit difficult to find and a little unfriendly on reception. The gallery space is superb though and well worth the effort.

This amazing show is ending soon, so go soon. A huge sculptural installation as usual by Richard Serra, who doesn't do small. The massive Rotate pieces weigh in as solid mild steel at 75 tonnes - about the same as a dozen London buses! Awesome

I visited the Grosvenor Hill gallery, rather than the Britannia Street one, for an exhibition of Michael Andrews paintings. The best of them - such as the monumental depictions of Ayers Rock and his final work of the Thames Estuary - are masterful. The airy spaces of the gallery suit 'Earth, Air and Water' very well indeed.
The snooty girl at reception was the only jarring note to my visit, but her comically posh voice and her comically posh name were more amusing than annoying.

Went at the end of the day, a while before 6 pm (closing time). The lights were already out and staff were leaving the building, but we begged, since we were there from So, Calif. to see the exhibit. Armed with cell phone flashlights, we were allowed to view 2 rooms with art installations. The lighting in all but the front lobby area had been turned off. While not optimal, I am sure the gallery is far more impressive with proper lighting. Glad we got to go in, but disappointed the viewing wasn't optimal.
