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.
