It is not easy coming up with compelling and complex material show after show. This catalog is thinner than usual, but phat as ever—quality over quantity with no filler! Of course, we will be bringing more than these works of art to the fair, but herein are a group of well-winnowed works that deserve special attention. Enjoy! Come see this collection and more at The Philadelphia Antiques & Art Show, April 20-22 (*preview party April 19, 2018). Location: The Navy Yard, 4747 South Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19112.
To Have and To Hold Folk Art Painted Tintypes Circa: 1860-1880 Size: +/- 7" x 10" (slightly larger than typical full plate) A rare pair of African American tintypes of a husband and wife. Both figures are quite striking—sophisticated, strong—and look at that dress!
