The Private View Gallery—a best kept secret for connoisseurs

by Victoria Woodhull-Cushing

For those who are in the know, The Private View Gallery,  located at 212 Brazilian Avenue in Palm Beach, opened in March of 2014. For those who want to learn more about contemporary art and build their art collection, they should make an appointment at The Private View Gallery, founded by Paige Rense Noland, former editor-in-chief of Architectural Digest, where she served from 1970 to 2010.  Private View is curated by Victoria Woodhull Cushing.
The majority of the artwork for sale at the gallery comes directly from artist Kenneth Noland’s (1924-2010) personal collection – works of his own that he held back over the years and works of artists he collected and admired. As a collector, Noland purchased many important works in his lifetime, and it was also common for his peers to trade amongst themselves.
While the gallery operates as an exclusive showroom for Noland’s own paperwork (Noland’s works on canvas are represented by Pace Gallery in New York and London) they also represent several private collections of Noland’s work and collaborate with the estates of other artists.  For example, our current exhibition includes not only works by Noland but also sculpture by Sir Anthony (Tony) Caro and works on paper by Hans Hofmann.
If you would like to attend a private reception third week of May  and meet Paige Rense, please email me at maribel@altimacclub.com
or call Altima International at 561 833 8283

Rock Tradition with Ivanka Trump | Hamilton Jewelers

Hamilton Jewelers chose Ivanka Trump’s leading jewelry collection as their Spring 2014 highlight. Launching in 2007 at her boutique on Madison Avenue, the Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry collection focuses on the decades between the 20’s and the 50’s of Art Deco, combining with the structure and elegance of the architecture of New York.

The pieces exhibit the softer, romantic and feminine silhouettes of the early 50’s, harking back to the stars of old Hollywood. The collections appeals to women who have strong sense of themselves, know what they like, value exquisite workmanship and wear even the most important jewelry with a kind of off-handed elegance. By reinventing the best classics of the past cen-tury with a modern twist, Ivanka Trump encourages women every-where to rock tradition.

“The Beasts of the Earth & the Spirit of Man” at Holden Luntz Gallery through April 18th

Worth Avenue’s Holden Luntz Gallery’s latest exhibition, “The Beasts of the Earth and the Spirit of Man,” was conceived by gallery owner Holden Luntz as a way of showcasing photography’s ability to visualize humanity in all forms, as well as the larger world with endless landscapes and creatures.
DAVID-YARROW-Desert-Flight-Amboseli-KenyaTB
“The sense of the show is that we all have some innate, non-visual sense of the world,” Luntz said. “We are kind of citizens of the planet now and I would hope that we, as human beings, have a connection to the earth and interest in preserving it. There are whole parts of the world that remain unknowable and photographers expand the world. If there is this invisible thread that unites us, what is that? Everybody will have a different answer to that question.”
Joyce-Tenneson-LarissaTB
The exhibit showcases the works of photographer David Yarrow, who travels to the ends of the earth in his quest to capture the harsh and endangered beauty of the natural world; Sebastiao Salgado, whose long-term projects are epic studies in humanity; Joyce Tenneson, whose focus is portrait photography that goes beyond the surface, resulting in ethereal images in an attempt to show the inner person; and John Dugdale, who creates poignant and intimate humanistic imagery using 19th century processes and aesthetics.

The Exhibition runs from March 7th to April 18th.

by Joshua Burcham

The Silver Fund is proud to feature a very rare Jean E. Puiforcat French Art Deco Dinner service.TheSilverFund-Very-Rare-Jean-E-Puiforcat-French-Art-Deco-Dinner-Service

“Leave it to the Silver Fund to find this extraordinary collection with this number of Silver and Silver-gilt pieces, circa France 1925-1947”

The Silver Fund is the largest dealer worldwide in estate Georg Jensen silver. In addition to their comprehensive collection of Georg Jensen holloware, their inventory includes exceptional 20th century silver designed by Jean Puiforicat, William Spratling, Antonio Pineda and many other great 20th century designers.

Since 1996, they have sold more than $40 million worth of Georg Jensen silver to private clients around the world. They have helped build multiple large collections including the Rowler collection, the largest single collection ever to be sold at auction where it fetched $9.8 million in one session.

The Silver Fund has helped put together outstanding exhibitions, including “Georg Jensen Jewelry” at the Bard Graduate Center in New York City. The exhibition was the largest Georg Jensen jewelry retrospective ever presented. The Silver Fund collaborated with Susan Weber Soros, the founder and director of the center, at every stage of the exhibition. We also collaborated on the Georg Jensen exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 2007.
The Silver Fund has authored the definitive book on Georg Jensen Holloware—Holloware: The Silver Fund Collection. The book was the culmination of five years of research, writing and collaboration.
