Hamiltons Gallery exhibited a wide range of works by gallery artists at Masterpiece 2013, including Irving Penn, Horst P. Horst, Helmut Newton, Guido Mocafico, Annie Leibovitz, Don McCullin, Gilles Bensimon, Murray Fredericks, Herb Ritts, Erwin Olaf, Jedd Novatt, and Tomio Seike.


Significant highlights included an oversized print of Don McCullin's Christian woman with hand grenade, Holiday Inn, Beirut, 1976. First printed in this large format in 2013, this harrowing real-time photograph shows the haunting violence between the Christian and Muslim militia in Beirut at that time.


Internationally established sculptor Jedd Novatt was represented by his work Chaos Harritu, 2012, from his renowned Chaos series. Working in bronze, Novatt breaks free from the constraints of minimalism, pushing towards abstraction, battling persistently between chaos and order. Novatt is recognised for his large-scale installation sculptures, including his permanent installation Chaos Nervionnext to the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, most recently Chaos Abaco at the Lever House, New York, and at Sotheby's Beyond Limitsexhibitions at Chatsworth House.


Work from Aranea by Guido Mocafico, the creator of the widely recognised Serpens series, was also exhibited on Hamiltons' stand. These large-scale format colour photographs present deadly spiders as beautiful still objects, igniting a primal apprehension. Guido's work resides in many significant public collections, including France's Le Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Musée de la Publicité, Paris, and the private collections of Tamara Mellon and Sir Elton John.
