A Nude Exposes The Vincent Price Of Art At Sears

A Nude Exposes The Vincent Price Of Art At Sears | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

This lithograph of Nude, Sleeping by Wolf Kahn was part of The Vincent Price Collection. No, it's not like Vincent Price himself owned the nude -- but is his selection of the art for a collection to sell at Sears any less creepy?

Yes, you read that right; Vincent Price, the famed B-film master of kitschy horror was selected to head a retail art sales program for Sears.

Published in 1844, the Atlas de Zoologie: ou collection de 100 planches contains illustrations of a number of creatures, some of which no longer walk this planet. Among those are thylacines — striped, carnivorous marsupials that went extinct when the last known specimen died in a Tasmanian zoo in 1936.

Wolff: Is art a criminal enterprise?

Wolff: Is art a criminal enterprise? | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

hardly anybody was willing or able to explain the actual process of creating astronomical value where otherwise none might exist, and how, over many years, prices with no underlying logic have not only been sustained but have inevitably headed ever higher.


Those questions were absent in the auction commentary despite a steady litany of recent scandals in the art world. This included last week's guilty plea by art family scion Helly Nahmad, accused of racketeering, money laundering, extortion and gambling in concert with a coterie of Russian gangsters. His plea helps his secretive family, one of the most powerful in the art market, avoid further scrutiny.


Indeed, it is nearly commonplace among art professionals that art, perhaps second only to drug trafficking, is among the world's most lucrative dubious business. It is hard to overlook the connections between these two cash-rich enterprises.

America's heroic ART COLLECTORS: Rag tag bag of experts who turned WW2 soldiers and inspired George Clooney's latest movie

America's heroic ART COLLECTORS: Rag tag bag of experts who turned WW2 soldiers and inspired George Clooney's latest movie | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

As the Nazi's razed their way across Europe they looted the world's greatest works of art so that they could realize Adolf Hitler's twisted vision for his eponymous 'Fühermuseum' - which would be built in his hometown of Linz, Austria.


With much of the artwork hostage behind enemy lines, a tiny British-American taskforce made up of museum directors, art historians and curators was created and charged with saving over 1,000 years of culture from the maniacal grasp of Hitler and his cronies.


Dubbed the Monuments Men, the rag-tag group was co-opted into the armed forces and sent into Europe following D-Day in 1944 on the greatest treasure hunt of all time, to recover and return the pieces of art to their rightful owners and reverse the cultural attack of an entire continent.

The secrets to investing in art

The secrets to investing in art | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Investing in art is a long-term project, so collectors should only buy what they love.


...Every collector also likes to have their art appreciate in value. But an artwork’s true value, beyond its importance in the larger art community and how rarely it appears on the market, is how desirable it is – the work’s aesthetic dividend.

Oprah Winfrey collection up for grabs - proceed to benefit leadership | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

In addition to these custom-made contemporary items, Oprah also has selected a number of exceptional European antiques from her collection to add to the sale. One exquisite Louis XVI chest stamped by the maker “Boudin” is expected to bring $30,000 to $50,000. The signed piece with detailed inlay and marble top makes this item highly desirable to any collector of fine decorative arts. Of similar quality is a set of Louis XV armchairs in hand embroidered yellow silk upholstery, valued at $20,000 to $40,000.

While I love the vintage fashionista who was compelled to have not one, but two, portraits of herself done at the 1934 Chicago World’s Fair (and I am quite enamored with her hat — which is either amply feathered or sports an actual bird!), it is the silhouette artist himself which mainly concerns me.

Irish collectors still favour nostalgia...By Michael Parsons

Irish collectors still favour nostalgia...By Michael Parsons | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Since the economy crashed in 2008, the Irish fine art and antiques market has experienced a flight to quality and search for safe-haven status. The most significant trends are the fall in value of both modern art and antique furniture.

Despite the startling prices being achieved for abstract modern and contemporary art at international auctions, Irish taste remains traditional and conservative. Auction results suggest the art that continues to be most highly sought after is traditional and representational, particularly landscapes of the west of Ireland, pastoral scenes, portraits and still lifes.

Although Ireland is becoming more urbanised and cosmopolitan by the day, a rural idyll – featuring nostalgia-infused motifs such as thatched and whitewashed cottages, farmyards, fishing harbours, horses, sheep and cattle, crossroads, cloud-flecked skies, blue mountains, bogs, rivers and lakes – still exercises a powerful hold over the national imagination.
