Chelsea Antiques Fair ranked as the number 1 viewed event on ARTFIXdaily's fall 2009 calendar.
The Mint Museum's show "Identity Theft: How a Cropsey Became a Gifford" intrigued ARTFIXdaily readers.

The top three fall art events, garnering the greatest number of views by ARTFIXdaily readers, were listed in the Calendar section from September 1 to December 31, 2009:

1. Chelsea Antiques Fair. Held twice annually, this five-year-old London antiques show takes place in the 17th-century style Old Town Hall on King's Road. About 35 exhibitors, including many BADA and LAPADA members, are focused on educating the collector; there is an extra emphasis on encouraging new collectors at this relaxed venue. The 2010 dates are: March 17-21, Sept. 22-26.

2. Identity Theft: How a Cropsey became a Gifford. The Mint Museum of Art spun an interesting exhibition around one of its most important Hudson River School holdings. For fifty years, the White Mountain scene, once attributed to Jasper Francis Cropsey, baffled art scholars who questioned the authenticity of the painting. In 2003, a cleaning revealed a surprise: the signature of Sanford Robinson Gifford. The show is on view through March 27, 2010.

2. The American Art Fair. The second year of this annual show, held at Manhattan's National Academy of Design, which is housed in a lovely Beaux-Arts mansion, drew high interest from American art collectors and museums. Sale proceeds, in part, benefit the National Academy and its School of Fine Arts.

ARTFIXdaily readers showed strong interest in The American Art Fair, an event in its second year with offerings such as Thomas Moran's "Icebergs."
