Want to own a FABULOUS work of art by a wonderful artist.... Tom Wesselmann is my artist Pick of the Month for a terrific work to add to or build on a collection.  Please email me or call me if you are interested in owning a work of this well recognized artist.

The VMFA in Richmond, VA welcomes this artists first major retrospective in North America and will be the only East Coast venue for this landmark exhibition. So if you are anywhere near the city of Richmond, it is well worth the visit.  The exhibition runs until July 28, 2013.

Famous for his Great American Nude series, American painter Tom Wesselmann (1931-2004) is widely regarded as one of the leading figures in the vanguard of American Pop Art. Alongside his other contemporaries including Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and James Rosenquist, Wesselmann forged a new movement using images and materials of everyday popular culture.

Again....I welcome you to call me with any interest and/or questions. 571-215-8472.

Top Prices and a Record Setting Auction

Top Prices and a Record Setting Auction

We are in a new era of the art market as salesrooms overflow with collectors.

How much is a half-billion dollars?  

It's the amount the U.S. government has budgeted to combat climate change in 2013.

It's about how much the Romney campaign raised last year.

It's about how much money was spent during a single night at the Christie's postwar and contemporary sale last month.

$495 Million

Expect to see more milestones with newer artists, prices of artworks in the thousands in the teens and more, as art grows both as a collectible and also as a financial asset.

One of my favorites and a photographer to be coveted and collected...William Klein.

As always...please call me for assistance in starting or adding to your collection.
