The path to cultivating a sophisticated art collection can be a difficult road to navigate. In my 43 years of experience as a dealer and curator, I have developed intimate knowledge, a vast frame of reference, and a level of taste and sophistication, which is unparalleled in the field of Antique North American Indian Art.
In a typical year, I place 40 or 50 carefully selected objects mostly into private collections. The objects date from 200 B.C. to around 1920. It has been my pleasure to establish long term relationships with the world's leading collectors of both Antique North American Indian Art, as well as distinguished "crossover" collectors of Modern and Contemporary Art. Over the years, more than 100 of my former pieces have been exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Countless others have been included in shows at The Art Institute of Chicago, The Detroit Institute of Arts, The American Museum of Natural History, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (K.C.), Scottsdale Center for the Arts, The Aspen Art Museum, amongst other notable institutions.
The key to my success for nearly half a century has been twofold - first, an undying enthusiasm for my material, and second, a passion for sharing it with others. What fun it has been to develop long term relationships with my clients, many of which have lasted 20, 25, and 30 years. It is magical to watch their enthusiasm grow for this wonderful material. I look forward to sharing my passion and expertise with you!
