The prestigious Winter Antiques Show, which is in its 60th year, will present a loan exhibition honoring the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. Fresh Take, Making Connections to the Peabody Essex Museum will present over 50 paintings, sculptures, textiles and decorative objects from the Peabody Essex, one of the country’s oldest and most progressive museums. The exhibition will be on view during the entire run of the Winter Antiques Show, which will take place from January 24, 2014 to February 2, 2014 at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City.

Highlights from Fresh Take, Making Connections to the Peabody Essex Museum include an 18th century inlaid ivory chair from India, a mahogany dressing chest by Thomas Seymour (circa 1810) and a 19th century portrait of the author Nathaniel Hawthorne by Charles Osgood. Jeff Daly, formerly a senior design advisor to the director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, will design the exhibition.  

Fresh Take will coincide with the Peabody Essex Museum’s 215th anniversary. The institution recently embarked on a $650 million campaign and expansion that will place the museum among the top 10 art institutions in the country in terms of gallery space and total endowment.

Paris Tableau Returns for its Second Year

Held from November 7th to 12th at the Palais de la Bourse, Paris Tableau will try to outdo last year’s inaugural show, which saw over 6,000 patrons and sold 60 major paintings.

Centered on Old Master Paintings ranging from the Middle Ages to the Second Empire, Paris Tableau was created by ten dealers – Maurizio Canesso, Hervé Aaron, Eric Coatalem, Bertrand Gautier, Bob Haboldt, Jean-François Heim, Georges de Jonckheere, Jacques Leegenhoek, Giovanni Sarti and Claude Vittet – who all share the same vision. While multi-discipline art fairs are currently commonplace, the dealers felt a fair dedicated solely to Old Masters was both needed and desired by collectors, curators, and fans.

This year’s Paris Tableau will host a loan exhibition from Le Mobilier National (The National Furniture Museum of France). Curated by Arnauld Brejon de Lavergnée, the former Director of Collections at Le Mobilier National, Hidden Treasures of the Goblins, will feature approximately 20 paintings and painted cartoons, some of which have never before been on public display. The point of the exhibition is to illustrate the link between paintings and its translation into textiles for interior use.

A festival of iconic films that thematically explore Old Master Paintings will also be part of Paris Tableau. Held from November 9th to 10th, the festival features such films as Rembrandt, Nightwatching, The Mill and the Cross, and The Girl with a Pearl Earring.
