Seventy of the world’s top experts in the fine and decorative arts will once again be on hand during the Winter Antiques Show at the Park Avenue Armory. A leading art, antiques, and design fair in America, the show highlights a dynamic mix of works dating from ancient times through the present day.

Come one, come all, the annual Winter Antiques Show is ready to ring in the new year! Hosted between January 19-28 at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City, the event is one of many outstanding fine art events that annually kick off the new year. In 2018, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond has loaned an important exhibition, “Collecting for the Commonwealth/Preserving for the Nation: Celebrating a Century of Art Patronage, 1919-2018,” for the fair.

The exhibition “celebrates a collection renowned for American fine and decorative art, including the transformative gift of the James W. and Frances Gibson McGlothlin Collection,” according to the press release. “VMFA holds the best Art Nouveau and Art Deco outside of Paris; French Impressionist, modern, and contemporary works from the collections of Paul Mellon and Sydney and Frances Lewis; the Lillian Thomas Pratt bequest of five Fabergé Imperial Eggs and over 500 additional Russian objects; and the recently acquired Rachel Lambert Mellon Collection of Jean Schlumberger, comprising over 140 pieces designed by the iconic artist-jeweler who boasted a private salon at Tiffany & Co.”
