NEW YORK Nov 12, 2018 – THROCKMORTON FINE ART (www.throckmorton-nyc.com) is presenting a specially curated selection of pre-Columbian artifacts, archaic Chinese Jade and ceramics, Tribal art and Vintage photography at the 65th Annual Winter Show (formerly titled Winter Antiques Show). This is the gallery’s 33rd year participating in the renowned New York show at the Park Avenue (67th Street) Armory — this year being staged from January 18 – January 27, with an Opening Night Party on January 17th.
“The Winter Show attracts the most knowledgeable collectors, scholars and museum officials,” says Spencer Throckmorton. “Only 70 of the world’s most respected antiques and art dealers are invited to exhibit, and many save their most important acquisitions for this event.
“The Winter Show’s reputation is for showing ‘the best of the best.’” Many of the museum-quality art and antiquities on offer have not been seen on the market for decades. The Pre-Columbian and tribal art, Chinese jade, ceramics and photographs we offer have been carefully vetted to insure authenticity.”
Among important artifacts at the Throckmorton stand, visitors to the Winter Show will see an Olmec Standing Figure, 15 inches tall, dating to 1100-500 BCE, an Olmec Anthropomorphic Mortar Frog, made of jade, 6.5 inches long and dating to 1100-500 BCE and a Mayan Engraved Vessel of Clay standing nine inches high dating from 600-900 CE.
Also featured is a Colima Ceremonial Abstract Mask dating to 100 BCE-250 CE and an Olmec Seated Bench Figure made of serpentine.
The Winter Show is an annual benefit for the East Side House Settlement, a community-based organization in the South Bronx. East Side House’s programs focus on education and technology as gateways out of poverty and as the keys to economic opportunity. All revenues from the show’s general admissions and the net proceeds from the Opening Night Party and other events go to East Side House and contribute substantially to its private philanthropic budget.
Spencer Throckmorton has pursued a long-held interest in pre-Columbian art, Chinese jades, Asian sculpture and Latin American photography, staging gallery shows and producing a series of publications that have attracted the attention of both collectors and museum officials.
Demonstrating the gallery’s commitment to connoisseurship, Throckmorton has achieved sales to such major museums including The Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Getty and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston along with the Reina Sofia in Madrid. Portions of collections the gallery was instrumental in forming have been donated to the Louvre. The gallery loans examples on a regular basis to such significant institutions as the National Gallery in London.
As the premier dealer offering extraordinary pre-Columbian art and vintage and contemporary Latin American photography, Throckmorton Fine Art participates in internationally acclaimed fairs, including The Winter Show, the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) PHOTOGRAPHY SHOW, and exhibitions during Asia Week in New York.
