A Visit to the Jan Krugier Gallery

When I was last in New York I had the joy of visiting the Jan Krugier Gallery.  It was a major fixture in the community for decades and was located, most recently, on Madison Avenue.  I always enjoyed seeing the 19th and 20th century art and the original prints that they displayed and I loved when I’d get to see… (more…)

Enjoying Flemish Paintings

I don’t have much time today, but wanted to recount a lovely experience we had at the De Jonckheere Gallery.  I had visited their gallery in Paris and was excited to see the new one they just opened in Geneva.  They’re located at 7 rue de l’Hôtel de Ville and specializes in the study and sale of 15th, 16th and… (more…)

A Detour to Gallerie Interart

The Gallery Jacques de la Beraudiere

The first gallery that we stumbled upon in our Geneva exploration was the Gallery Jacques de la Beraudiere.  This location specializes in the Masters of the 19th and 20th century.  We had actually heard of his gallery in Paris that he opened with his partner Philippe Cazeau, and we were looking forward to seeing both the new Geneva space and… (more…)

The Trip of a Lifetime

It was a dream come true.  After teaching European history for over three decades, I was finally able to get myself a one month trip to Europe.  My husband and I saved for years for this chance, and we were hoping that nothing would stop us.  We’ve been in Europe many times, of course, but have never had the chance… (more…)
