The Winter Show at Park Avenue Armory ~ a benefit for East Side House Settlement ~ will take place from January 18 to January 27, 2019, featuring 70 of the world’s top experts in the fine and decorative arts.

From rare carpets to vintage wallpaper to antique toys to rare books to Jewelry to The Old Print Shop with its antiquarian maps ~ to fine art and more, it is an annual Event not to be missed.

Events include the fabulous Opening Night Party on January 17th, with the Fair opening to the public at Noon on Friday, January 18th.  VIP Tours, VIP Lunch and Lectures are interspersed throughout the ten-day Fair, which closes at 6pm on Sunday, January 27th.

Speaking to our featured image (above), between 1940 and 1959, four now legendary artists were introduced to American audiences by the Galerie St. Etienne: Oskar Kokoschka, Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, and Anna Mary Robertson (“Grandma”) Moses. Iconic work from these artists will comprise the gallery’s exhibition at the Winter Show and include a portrait by Egon Schiele of his sister Gerti, who would go on to model professionally. She can be seen in his Portrait of a Woman in an Orange Hat, 1910. Schiele’s wife, Edith Harms, a proper bourgeois young lady, found it hard to adjust to her husband’s bohemian ways. A 1915 portrait, Woman Holding Flower (Edith Schiele), evokes the subject’s wistful sadness, Gustav Klimt’s Standing Female Nude with Hand Resting on Hip, Facing Left 1916-17, and a number of snow scenes by Grandma Moses will be on view. The Winter Show will kick-off the gallery’s 80th anniversary year. Visit Galerie St. Etienne at Booth D7.

All revenues from the Fair’s general admissions and the net proceeds from the Opening Night Party and other events go to East Side House Settlement.

The Winter Show will run from January 17 to January 27 at Park Avenue Armory, 643 Park Avenue, NYC
