A Feast for the Eyes: de Chirico & Phoenix Ancient Art

Certainly, anyone who was privy to be at the recent exhibit at the Helly Nahmad Gallery called “Mnemosyne: de Chirico and Antiquity,” will tell you what a fantastic experience it was. The exhibit ran through January 30th before moving to Gstaad for a short viewing. The unusual exhibit was built around 22 paintings from Giorgio de Chirico from his 1920s… (more…)

JFK and an Antique Log Book

Many people assume that antiques include only large objects like pottery, paintings and the like. Documents, however, are also part of this category, and as a history and antique buff, I’ve always found antique documents fascinating. It was John F. Kennedy’s birthday yesterday (Happy Birthday to our dear 35th President!) and there were a number of articles written about him… (more…)

Get on the Road with Market Warriors

We haven’t traveled anywhere this month so I don’t have any great travel tips or art selections to share. What I do have, however, is quite a gem. If you haven’t tuned in to the new PBS show called “Market Warriors,” and you’re someone who loves antiques as I do, then you’re missing out! “Market Warriors” mirrors itself after “Antiques… (more…)

Going Back in Time with Phoenix Ancient Art

In sharp contrast to our quite modern experience in the Gallery Patrick Gutknecht was our venture to the Phoenix Ancient Art S.A. Gallery owned by brothers Hicham Aboutaam and Ali Aboutaam.  I had once visited the Phoenix Ancient Art S.A. location in New York, and I was very much looking forward to seeing what their Geneva locale held.
