Profiles Behind Vintage Silhouette Artists Are Shady | Inherited Values

Profiles Behind Vintage Silhouette Artists Are Shady | Inherited Values | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

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.

Perhaps you can add to this story?

Silent Film and the Keyboard Art Pioneers

Silent Film and the Keyboard Art Pioneers | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
Fans of silent film were just as devoted to their favorite stars as we are today. In fact, a couple of fans from the era took their devotion to a new level, pioneering a kind of art that wouldn’t gain true popularity until the 1970s.

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.

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.

With all the work we do in antiques and collectibles, we are often asked about appraisals. Here’s what we know, and what we do.


First of all, it is important to note that there is no such thing as a licensed appraiser in the United States of America.

Antique Campbell’s Soup advertisng tin sign expected to reach $40,000-$60,000

Antique Campbell’s Soup advertisng tin sign expected to reach $40,000-$60,000 | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The lifetime collection of Don and Diane Sayrizi – advanced collectors in many categories, but especially antique advertising – plus consignments from over 100 other advanced collectors from all over the country will be offered Oct. 4-6 by Showtime Auction Services, at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds in Ann Arbor, located at 5055 Ann Arbor/Saline Road.


“By far this is the best collection of antique advertising we have ever had the privilege of selling,” said Mike Eckles of Showtime Auction Services, based in Woodhaven, Mich. “We’ve held big auctions in the past, many of which featured advertising items, but never like this. The antique signs, in particular, are highly desirable and would be fine additions to any collection.”

Fashioning standards for industry conduct (Art & Antiques)

Fashioning standards for industry conduct (Art & Antiques) | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Doctors have the American Medical Association; lawyers are represented by the American Bar Association, car dealers, teachers, religions, and even countries have organized representation to promote their best interests to the public and government. Art and antiques dealers, one can categorically say, do not have any form of an umbrella organization that can advocate for its interests.

The many organizations that do attempt to be representatives of the industry are narrow in focus and small in membership. Whether it is the Art and Antiques Dealer’s League of America (AADLA), Antiques Dealers’ Association of American (ADA), National Antiques & Art Dealers Association of American (NAADAA), or the various state and local associations, they all have limited membership, finances, and interests. Individually they are just groups that attempt to create their own exclusivity of membership and can’t look at industry issues, be it a simple standard form of invoice or other business documents that have dealer and customer interests in mind; how about the larger purpose of the public’s image of dealers?

Pin-Up Queens: Three Female Artists Who Shaped the American Dream Girl | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

“So many women are left out of historical records,” Dahlsad says. “Men will say, ‘I want to show off what my father did; he deserves to shine. Someone should do a book on him!’ Daughters don’t do that about their moms to the same degree, so often things get thrown away. How many men would look at their archives say, ‘Just take it all to the dumpster’? Somebody would be saying, ‘You can’t do that! You’re George Petty. Put it back!’”

Before Rockwell, a Gay Artist Defined the Perfect American Male by Hunter Oatman-Stanford

Before Rockwell, a Gay Artist Defined the Perfect American Male by Hunter Oatman-Stanford | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Thanks to J.C. Leyendecker, we all know that sex sells. 

  You might not recognize his name, but a hundred years ago the American public celebrated his images of sleek muscle-men, whose glistening homo-eroticism adorned endless magazine covers. Rockwell was just an 11-year old kid when Leyendecker created the legendary “Arrow Collar Man,” one of America’s first recognizable sex symbols.    To top things off, Leyendecker’s boys were often modeled after his lover and lifetime companion, Charles Beach, making their secret romance a front-page feature across the U.S.

Curate Your Art Collection with Pictify

Curate Your Art Collection with Pictify | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Pictify is a new web-based curation service which allows you to put together, publish and share, visual art collection of any kind.

 

This is a great tool for those in love with art, as much as for those who need to organize, present and promote artists' work.

 

At Pictify, most curated collections are built around paintings, sculptures, photography and drawings created by users who are passionate about a specific artist, genre or historical time. 

 

But Pictify offers a tremendous opportunity to museums and art gallery owners, managers and curators, as it offers them an easy way to showcase their existing collections as well as upcoming ones.

 

From the official site: "As a gallery or museum you can feature your artists and the works in your collection on Pictify. You can show individual art works, preview an upcoming exhibition, and organise works in albums by artist or medium."

 

P.S.: Just like Kullect.com, Pictify is a specialized content curation service catering to a specific type of content and user interested in art. Much less generic than Pinterest, and much more focused on a specific area.

 

Expect more special-interest curation sites to emerge soon in other fields.


The service is free to use.

Getting Started: http://pictify.com/about/getting-started/  ;
