Art Antiques Dealers of America 2012 Show

Overview of the 2012 Art and Antiques Dealers League of America Spring Show

This past weekend the Art and Antiques Dealers League of America held their Spring show at the Park Avenue Armory. Partnered with and the ASPCA, the best of the best of decorative and fine art (that can’t yet be found in museums or aren’t already in a private collection) were on display for both viewing and buying pleasure. Portions of the proceeds made at the show went to the ASPCA.

The show was vetted, which means each and every item on display  (from nearly 60 dealers and galleries) were closely examined by a panel of experts for authenticity and accuracy in labeling. Dealers from across the United States and Europe came together to display some of their most prized pieces from their collections.

The most notable piece of the show was the sleigh  that stood front and center in the Dalva Brother’s booth. The Dalva brothers, a third generation family business, known for their collection of 18th century decorative art, had on display a sleigh that was said to have been made for the Dauphin by Jean Berain.  Can you imagine having this decorative trinket in your front hall?

Craig Van Den Brulle, who has a showroom in Nolita, carries a variety of both vintage and contemporary furnishing and this sculptural Riemann chair, which he displayed in a highly polished  stainless steel is available in a variety of colors. A gold one perhaps to go with this vibrant and warm Scandinavian Rya rug?

Hyde Park known for their fine collection of English Georgian and Regency pieces,  presented this delicate Regency Rosewood and Brass Inlaid Center Table with Vibrant Satinwood Banding and it would look spectacular when paired with this rug:

The delicate floral design and cools colors of the rug would compliment the straight lines and dark color of the table. This charming antique French Art Deco rug   reinterprets the naturalistic floral repertoire of nineteenth century Savonnerie rugs and would make for a great accent to the table .

This Harry Bertoria piece, Sculpture Screen Maquette, 1953, from Lost City Arts,  provided the mid-century modern fan some nice eye candy.  This sculpture would be perfect in a room with this rug: A chic vintage rug from Morocco with a gradient allover pattern incorporating warm earthy colors with soft golden-yellow undertone would match the rich gold of the brass in the sculpture.

Gustav Klimt The Sunflower (Das Werk) by Nazmiyal Antique Rugs

Jason Jacques, who specializes in Art Nouveau and Japonist ceramic pieces, had both decorative and fine art on display. A signature edition collotype , The Sunflower (Das Werk), 1914  by Gustav Klimt caught my eye. There are remnants of impressionism in this work that is combined with an emerging style–a new and simpler early modern aesthetic- an aesthetic that matches the Klimt picture above. **all photos courtesy of The Art and Antiques Dealers League of America.
