Don’t Miss Point Art Monaco Next Month

I won’t be making it to the Point Art Monaco event, but if you have the time and money, you shouldn’t miss this one. This is going to be the third edition of the Salon Point Art Monaco. As described on the website for Point Art Monaco, “The Salon Point Art Monaco, one of the major events dedicated to art, hosts this year some of the most prestigious Monegasque and other internationally renowned galleries, in a setting created for the occasion at the Sporting d’Hiver in the heart of the Principality of Monaco.”

This event, organized under the High Patronage of his H.S.H. Prince Albert II, will take place from August 1 to 5th, 2013.

In attendance will be many of the world’s finest artists and their work including permanent exhibitors Gallery Adriano Ribolzi, Grippaldi Monte-Carlo, Maison D’Art and others. One time exhibitors include Dario Ghio, De Bartha Galerie, Galerie Bernard De Leye, Phoenix Ancient Artand many others.

Phoenix Ancient ArtAs a sneak peek into the fine pieces to be exhibited at the event, Phoenix Ancient Art offers a glimpse into their collection. A second generation Ancient Art business with galleries in New York and Geneva, Phoenix Ancient Art houses beautiful antiquities. One piece they plan to display is a Greek Hellenistic jewelry set from the late 2nd-1st century BC.  It includes a necklace and a ring. The necklace includes four pendants that are oval-shaped and are set with an oval garnet on a gold disc. The pieces are beautifully preserved with the necklace completely intact. The ring is in outstanding condition with much of the gold detailing, granulations and filigree work completely intact.

Other pieces they plan to include in their collection for the Point Art Monaco show are a gold leaf bust of the Emperor Licinius from the Roman period beginning in the 4th century AD, a white marble bust from the Roman period 250 AD and a beautiful mosaic with the portrait of a philosopher of a man of letters from the Roman 2nd century AD period.

Certainly, this is an event worth being part of for any art collectors, antique lovers and travelers. It’s on my bucket list. Someday…
