Chapters: Sotheby’s, Imperial Porcelain Factory, Muirfield, York Theatre Royal, Broad Bottom Ministry, Divan Club, Cork North Infirmary, Dommelsch. Excerpt: Sotheby’s is the world’s fourth oldest auction house in continuous operation. The oldest auction house in operation is the Stockholms Auktionsverk founded in 1674, the second oldest is Göteborgs Auktionsverk founded in 1681 and third oldest being Uppsala Auktionskammare founded in 1731, all Swedish. Sotheby’s predecessor, Baker’s, was founded in London, England on 11 March 1744 when Samuel Baker presided over the disposal of “several hundred scarce and valuable” books from the library of a certain Rt. Hon. Sir John Stanley. This disposal however was not by means of auction and as Frank Herrmann and Brian Learmount observe, the business did not seek to auction fine arts in general until much later, their first major success in this field being the sale of a Frans Hals painting for 9 thousand guineas as late as 1913. The current business dates back to 1804 when two of the partners of the original business (Leigh and Sotheby) left to set up their own book dealership. Today, the firm has an annual turnover of approximately US$3 billion, and offices on London’s New Bond Street and Manhattan’s York Avenue. This position has been achieved through natural growth, acquisitions (most notably the 1964 purchase of the United States’ largest auctioneer of fine art, Parke-Bernet), and management during the cyclical “art recessions” of the 20th century. Sotheby’s New York completed renovations on its York Avenue headquarters in 2001 adding the unique capability to store works on the same premises as the specialist departments, galleries, and auction spaces. Sotheby’s New York’s offices also house Aulden Cellars. More:

Excerpt: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, known colloquially as The Met, is an art museum located on the eastern edge of Central Park, along what is known as Museum Mile in New York City, United States, North America. It has a permanent collection containing more than two million works of art, divided into nineteen curatorial departments. The main building, often referred to simply as “the Met”, is one of the world’s largest art galleries; there is also a much smaller second location in Upper Manhattan, at “The Cloisters”, which features medieval art. Represented in the permanent collection are works of art from classical antiquity and Ancient Egypt, paintings and sculptures from nearly all the European masters, and an extensive collection of American and modern art. The Met also maintains extensive holdings of African, Asian, Oceanic, Byzantine, and Islamic art. The museum is also home to encyclopedic collections of musical instruments, costumes and accessories, and antique weapons and armor from around the world. A number of notable interiors, ranging from 1st century Rome through modern American design, are permanently installed in the Met’s galleries. The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870 by a group of American citizens. The founders included businessmen and financiers, as well as leading artists and thinkers of the day, who wanted to open a museum to bring art and art education to the American people. It opened on February 20, 1872, and was originally located at 681 Fifth Avenue. As of 2007, the Met measures almost -mile (400 m) long and occupies more than 2,000,000 square feet (190,000 m). The facade of the Metropolitan Museum is one of the main features of New York City’s “Museum Mile”.The Met’s permanent collection is cared for and. More:

 Art Critic


Art Critic


$62.99


An art critic is a person who specializes in evaluating art. Their written critiques, or reviews, are published in newspapers, magazines, books and on web sites. Art collectors and patrons often utilize the advice of art critics as a way to enhance their appreciation of the art they are viewing. Typically the art critic views art at exhibitions, galleries, museums or artists’ studios. Professional art critics are expected to have a keen eye for art and a thorough knowledge of art history. Knowledge, however, provides no guarantee that a critic will know if a work of art, an exhibition, or an artist will stand out in history as “great”. The opinions of art critics has the potential to stir debate on art related topics. Due to this the viewpoints of art critics writing for art publications and newspapers adds to public discourse concerning art and culture. Some of today’s art critics use art blogs and other online platforms in order to connect with a wider audience and expand debate about art.

Excerpt: The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale was realized by Mark K. Wheeler and officially opened for admission in September of 1968 in eastern Las Olas Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale. It would be the second Art Institute establishment following the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, founded in 1921; initially only offering diplomas in Commercial Art, Interior Design, and Fashion Illustration and remaining unaccredited. This status would span a duration of 18 months until in April 1971 when the college would be granted accreditation by the Accrediting Commission for Trade and Technical Schools of the Career College Association. Two years later, in November 1973, the school was be purchased from Wheeler by the Education Management Corporation. In February 1975, two years after its purchase by the EDMC, the school became licensed by the State Board of Independent Postsecondary Vocational, Technical, Trade, and Business Schools. It wouldn’t be for another four years in 1979, however, that the State of Florida officially recognized the school and gave it authorization to award Associate of Science degrees. For the next seven years, the college did not see any significant changes, until in May 1986 when the decision was made to relocate the school from Las Olas Boulevard to 1799 SE 17th Street. The following year, the State Board of Independent Colleges and Universities granted the school authorization to award Bachelor degrees and in. More:

The massive brick building sits at the corner of Tillman Avenue and Butternut Street in the residential section adjacent to the three thousand block of Michigan Avenue. The building is an imposing presence in the neighbhorhood of small, late nineteenth century houses and cottages, measuring seventy feet on Tillman and one hundred feet on Butternut. The design of the structure is urban and pedestrian friendly, with no setback from the sidewalk and double door entrances on both Tillman and Butternut. A review of Sanborn Insurance maps from the time period shows that the building was originally built without a parking lot, indicating a pedestrian connection with the surrounding neighborhood. According to the building permit issued March 20, 1914, the Bohemian National Home (Cesky Norodni Dum, as written in stone on the front of the building) was built by a group

Chapters: Art Galleries in New York City, Associated American Artists, Chambers Fine Art, Yvon Lambert Gallery, Zabriskie Gallery, Rochester Contemporary Art Center, Big Orbit Gallery, Elaine Benson Gallery. Excerpt: Associated American Artists is an art gallery and business established in 1934 in New York City. The gallery marketed art to the middle classes, first in the form of affordable prints and later in home furnishings and accessories, and played a significant role in the growth of art as an industry. Associated American Artists was begun by Reeves Lewenthal. Lewenthal’s first job was as a reporter for the Chicago Tribune but he quickly expanded into artists’ agent, working as a publicist for British artist Douglas Chandor. By the 1930s Lewenthal had a clientele of 35 groups including the National Academy of Design and the Beaux-Arts Institute of Design. Realizing the limited possibilities in selling high-priced art to high-class dealers, and the correspondingly huge potential in marketing affordable art to the much-larger middle classes, he left his public relations work to try his hand at this new business model. Prints being relatively cheap to produce, Lewenthal decided to focus on that medium. Before the 1930s, fine-art prints were usually limited editions which sold for $10-$50. During the Great Depression the Federal Art Project had resulted in hundreds of thousands of prints, but these were distributed free (mostly to schools) thus the artists made nothing. Lewenthal’s idea was to combine quality, affordability, and profit. In 1934 he met with several well-known American artists, including Thomas Hart Benton, and proposed hiring them to produce etchings which he would then sell to middle-class buyers for $5 apiece plus $2 per frame, .
