BEETLE Whaleboat Model -A Collector's Choice

Posted: March 24, 2014 15:10 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

When travelling in and around New England, it would not be surprising to discover a small, yet interesting multi-oared boat model displayed somewhere in a home, office, or library setting. This small double-ended type vessel would also be found in likely places such as antique shops, online galleries, and at notable maritime galleries -serving as a decorative art accent, or part of a collection. And, of course, these are very much part of the museum settings around the world for its simplistic yet esthetic design. The whaleboat has been the subject of countless stories and maritime...

Dorothy Dehner "Bolton Landscape"

Dorothy Dehner a Grande Art Dame

Posted: November 22, 2013 06:25 Last Updated: | Jay Caldwell

Some days as an art dealer are better than others. Such as the day a great work, by a long admired artist, comes into your life. Dorothy Dehner (1901-1994) is one of my “You had me at hello” artists whose work I first saw more than 25 years ago. I’ve always wanted to own a sculpture by her, but the right opportunity never presented itself. Until now. A lovely little gem has found its way into our gallery, and as is the case with us art addicted folks, into my mind and heart. Please say hello to Ms. Dehner’s unique 1976 bronze (that means she cast exactly one) Bolton Landscape. Ms. Deh...

A Masterpiece for the Ages: Laocoön and His Sons

Posted: October 11, 2013 10:33 Last Updated: | Bill Rau

Artistic influence comes in many forms through numerous disciplines. One work of art, in particular, has influenced some of the greatest artistic minds in history. Inspired by the writings of Homer and Virgil, admired by Pope Julius II, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, Rubens, Francis I, and even Napoleon, Laocoön and His Sons is truly a timeless masterpiece. This incredible 18th-century Laocoön and His Sons is one of only a handful of pre-1780 interpretations ever created, and dates between 1650-1780.

Maritime Shadowboxes - Defining A Contemporary Style

Posted: March 08, 2012 06:22 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

Shadowboxes came into vogue as sailor keepsakes during the 18th century when crews placed in this window-framed box items that denoted a sailor or officer's career while with a ship. This was the early shadowbox. Since then, the shadowbox has developed into pictureque two-dimensional form containing either cultural or maritime-related subjects. As the American maritime market grew in the mid-70s, so did the shadowbox. These were bulky wall pieces that centered around a shipmodel that was plaed in a setting with other vessels or coastal scenes which either depicted a lighthouse or town. T...

Do you remember that Super Hero Auction we had last year?  We had national news coverage for that event, plus plenty of local headlines and spots on our local news networks.  Our own John discovered he looked good in...
