The Art Market: Rockefeller Sales

Posted: June 06, 2018 11:50

The Art Market By: Howard Rehs & Lance Rehs     Part I of the Rockefeller Sale   On May 8th, Christie’s New York (located in Rockefeller Center) held part 1 of their highly anticipated sale of the collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller.

MY 2 CENTS ON MUSEUM DEACCESSIONS

Posted: April 25, 2018 09:26

The decisions by the Berkshire Museum and La Salle University to sell off most of their major works of art for financial reasons has caused a real uproar. While I am a firm believer that museums should not sell their works to ‘pay the bills’, I do feel that many museums need to ‘clean house’.  There are so many wonderful works in museum storage areas that will never see the light of day.

The Banksy Hunt & Art Market Hype! (by: Alyssa)   “All pictures painted inside, in the studio, will never be as good as those done outside” – Paul Cezanne, a quote that has truly inspired one artist that has been sparking headlines consistently during the month of October.  British born artist, Banksy, has been making his mark on New York since the first of October; promising one graffiti work of art a day scattered throughout the City for his show, “Better Out Than In.”  After the completion of each work he posts a picture to Instagram, which sends his followers...
