After a short illness Anita Besson died on 20 October 2015.
Galerie Besson opened at 15 Royal Arcade in 1988 and maintained an exciting and diverse exhibition schedule until Anita’s retirement in 2011. The exhibitions can still be enjoyed on the Galerie Besson website.
Anita shared 15 Royal Arcade with artists, collectors, admirers of ceramics and the occasional waif & stray. We all benefited from knowing her.
The Guardian website has an obituary here.
A memorial service will be held in 2016, details of which will be published here at a later date.
