The Australian and New Zealander artists featured in Out From Down Under & Beyond represent some of the finest emerging talent from the Oceanian art world. These artists draw inspiration from their nations’ histories, their natural splendor, the artists’ own travels across the globe, and their internal processes. They offer a unique and unforgettable view into a familiarly unfamiliar world. In Nicole Tremblay’s paintings, displayed in the solo exhibition, Sovereign Women / Femmes Souveraines, female subjects take on a presence that is larger than life. “I have always been fascinated by...

This is the third of a three part series of blog posts preceding our exhibition Innocence, Temptation and Power: The Evolution of Women in Art, on view at M.S.

Truly a period of transformation, the end of the 19th century can be characterized also as an era of contradiction. As the great generation of French academic painters such as Jean-Léon Gérôme, with their idealized female figures and neoclassical subjects, slowly...

Stories Waiting To Be Told

Posted: February 16, 2014 13:37 Last Updated: | Lisa Morales

McCormick Place is certainly a place to go visit. Rich in history (specifically, Miami history) stories emerge from each corner, room and floor, as well as, the elevator, walls, and the roof! However, it's a place where new ideas and stories are born each day. Peek into the artist studios, visit the exhibits, and, on First Friday Art Walk in Downtown Miami, sit under the tree out front, gaze at the stars, the Downtown Miami skyline... And, as Sean McCormick (Owner/Curator) will tell you, it all began with a concept. I was going to reveal the story behind the concept shown here which is ...

Clarke Auction brought a respectable range of results from their mixed offering sale on September 29th, their second in September, to close out the first month of an extremely promising fall auction season. The fine art selections showed excellent results from both old masters and modern works. The mixture of fine technique and desirability brought in bidding for an exceptional Old Master oil on canvas of Piazza San Marco. The painting, in the manner of Guardi, created significant interest in presale viewings and exploded past its conservative $1,000 to $1,500 estimate, finally hammerin...

My History....

Posted: August 28, 2013 10:28 Last Updated: | Alyssa Rehs

My great grandfather, M. Edwin Schillay, or Eddie as everyone called him, was an accountant here in New York City.  During the late 1930s / early 1940s one of his clients, an antique dealer, suggested that he would be a great fit in the antique business and should try it out.  My great grandfather gave it a go…he began booking trips to Europe, buying groups of paintings in bulk, packing them in 7 x 7 x 10 foot containers (which would hold 400 – 500 paintings), shipped them back to a New York rental space in the Manhattan Storage Warehouse and would sell them upon arrival.  ...
