THE WINTER ANTIQUES SHOW


Andrew Wyeth, The Prussian, 1973  at Jonathan Boos

Featuring the "Best of the Best" from antiquities through the 1960's, The Winter Antiques Show is a must see for both collectors and admirers.  I was invited to view the show during its last pre-opening hours earlier this week at the Armory while final touches were being made to the stylish booths of the 73 exhibitors.  Gorgeous vignettes featuring Americana, English, European and Asian decorative and fine arts are on display punctuated by several new dealers with a trend towards Modernism.

Maison Gerard is a personal favorite of mine. The dealer specializes in fine French Art Deco furniture, lighting and objects d'art. The pieces featured at the Armory are gorgeous representations of the period with inlaid marquetry, sinuous lines and rich exotic woods.

A rare screen by  Art Deco master Jean Dunand, considered to be the greatest lacquer artist of the period was a highlight of Maison Gerard, so whimsical and tres chic!
Barbara Israel's booth was simply breathtaking.  An exquisite collection of statues and garden antiques are staged against a lush waterfall backdrop.

Bold and beautiful Harry Bertoia's Devon Dunes,(1958)  bronze and copper sculpture was part of a varied, impressive exhibit at Lost City Arts, New York, NY

Exquisite pieces from Tiffany, Graff, Chanel and Bulgari are on display in celebration of the 60th Diamond Jubilee of the show.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to
say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.

Maybe you could space it out better?
