Among those artists, Dorothy Yoon is a London-based Korean artist who takes advantage of being between Western and Asian cultures. She was born in 1976 in Busan, the second largest city in Korea. Since relocation in the UK after her second MA degree, at Goldsmiths, she has developed her photographic works, which had been exhibited in London, China and Korea…

Marlborough Fine Art was founded in 1946 by Frank Lloyd and Harry Fischer who emigrated to England from Vienna, where Lloyd's family had been antique dealers for three generations and Fischer had dealt in antiquarian books. They first met in 1940, as soldiers in the British army. In 1948 they were joined by a third partner, David Somerset, now the Duke of Beaufort, and chairman of Marlborough Fine Art (London) Ltd.
In 1995 Chen Yifei, the most prominent and respected of Contemporary Chinese artists, signed an exclusive world-wide contract with Marlborough Fine Art. He subsequently had major retrospective exhibitions at the China National Museum of Fine Arts, Beijing, and the new Shanghai Museum as well as a One-Man Show at the Musée Granet in Aix-en-Provence, France. In 1997 he represented the People's Republic of China in the first ever, albeit temporary, Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. Since then Marlborough has organised Chen Yifei exhibitions in London (1997, 2001), New York (1999/2000), Munich (2001) and Paris (January 2002). A Memorial Exhibition to the artist, who sadly died in 2005, was held at Marlborough Fine Art London in the autumn of 2005. A further Memorial Exhibition took place at Marlborough Gallery New York from January - February 2007.
