Gun Deck Cutaways -A Decorative and Definitive Art Form

Posted: April 30, 2014 11:41 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

It is not surprising that this subject matter has not been recognized in the arts. However, it is a subject that warrants appreciation for its unique form of symmetry and balance when being viewed as a concept. Fine art is anything that is beyond the ordinary; a work which holds unprecedented merit at its finest level -regardless of medium. Money, nor an expert's opinion, cannot control it. What's factual is fine art is defined as "a form"..."a sculpture"...and/or "decorative piece". I can be further said by notables as "a knowledge made efficient by skill" (Genung) or "the expression o...

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 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. With the other known early examples now part of the Uffizi Museum of ...

The success of Antiques Roadshow focused the attention of fans and experts alike on the stories that are now brought to your televisions sets from all corners of the United States and Canada.
