After graduating from New York University in 1981, with a degree in Art History, I moved to London for a year to study and buy 19th century British Victorian art for our gallery. Since then my interests have included all schools of art from the 19th and 20th centuries. Today, I am considered one of the leading art dealers in 19th century French Academic and Realist painting and the world's expert on Julien Dupre (1851-1910), Daniel Ridgway Knight (1839-1924), Emile Munier (1840-1895), and Antoine Blanchard (1910-1988). I was the President of the Fine Art Dealers Association from 1997 - 2009 and was appointed to the Internal Revenue Service's Art Advisory Panel in 2008.

This past month we were at the Los Angeles Art Show and after five days and tens of thousands of people, I did hear a few new, or variations on, "Comments I Would Rather Not Hear and Things You Should Not Do." This list is getting long!

Arts & Culture: In two of my previous articles I covered many things one should not do, or say, to a dealer when visiting a show — and to be honest, I thought I had actually covered them all. Well, during our recent show in Baltimore I realized that... Go to Article

Arts & Culture: We started participating in art & antique shows some 25 years ago. In the beginning I found some of the comments people made quite amusing, but 25 years later I am still hearing the same ones — so I decided to list, in no particular ... Go to Article
