02 Mar Editor’s Letter–March/April 2020
THE MAGAZINE ANTIQUES – The Winter Show—the elegant art and antiques fair held every January at the Park Avenue Armory in New York—is exhausting, enervating, and can seem endless over the course of its ten-day run. Despite all that, I look forward to it more and more each year.
We at the magazine pack a lot into those days, starting with the luncheon we host for the vetting committee—the experts who ensure that everything on offer is authentic and correctly identified. On the social side, we had afternoon tea at the Explorers Club— amidst doughty portraits, Inuit artifacts, and the skin of a man-eating tiger—with our editorial board of advisors, a group of curators, collectors, and academics who help keep us attuned to currents in the world of arts scholarship.
