WINTER IS HERE

The Winter Antiques Show is the leading art, antiques, and design fair in America, featuring 70 of the world’s top experts in the fine and decorative arts.

Held at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City, the Show highlights a dynamic mix of works dating from ancient times through the present day, and maintains the highest standards of quality in the art market. Each object at the fair is vetted for authenticity, date, and condition by a committee of 150 experts from the United States and Europe.

New dealers  coming to the 2018 Winter Antiques Show at the Park Avenue Armory are Hirschl & Adler Modern, New York City; Jason Jacques Gallery, New York City; Lillian Nassau LLC, New York City; Lobel Modern, Inc., New York City; Spencer Marks Ltd., Southampton, Massachusetts; and Galerie Anne-Sophie Duval, Paris, which will collaborate with Paris dealer Carolle Thibaut-Pomerantz, a specialist in historic wallpaper. Collectors of Americana will be glad to have Joan Brownstein and Peter Eaton of Newbury, Massachusetts, back after a year’s absence—Brownstein with folk paintings and Eaton with New England Colonial and Federal furniture of the finest quality.

The Winter Antiques Show is an annual benefit for East Side House Settlement, a community-based organization serving the Bronx and Northern Manhattan. East Side House’s programs focus on education and technology as gateways out of poverty and as the keys to economic opportunity. The show begins January 19th.
