Partners in Life and Art: The Spectacular Collections of the Havemeyer Family
January 28, 3:30-5:00pm
In person event, Park Avenue Armory
Asia Week New York has partnered once again with The Winter Show to present an engaging and informative discussion panel. Thomas Denenberg, the John Wilmerding Director, Shelburne Museum; Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen, Anthony W. and Lulu C. Wang Curator of American Decorative Arts, The Metropolitan Museum of Art; and Dessa Goddard, Vice President, Bonhams, will explore how America's pioneering art patrons at the turn of the 19th century built one of the most impressive collections in modern history. This extraordinary and trendsetting collection has enriched several of America's leading cultural institutions.
The Winter Show is the première art, antiques, and design fair in America, featuring many of the world’s top experts in the fine and decorative arts. The Fair was established in the mid-1950s as a benefit for East Side House Settlement and, by the end of that decade, had firmly established itself as the leading event of its kind in the United States. East Side House is a community-based organization serving the Bronx and Northern Manhattan; its programs focus on education and technology as gateways out of poverty and as the keys to economic opportunity. All ticket sales proceeds from the Show provide unrestricted funds for East Side House’s life-changing programs.
This year’s The Winter Show will take place January 20-29 in the Park Avenue Armory in New York. Among the many outstanding exhibitors are Asia Week New York members Ralph M. Chait Galleries, Joan B Mirviss LTD, and Thomsen Gallery.
