Welcome to our new website! This fall marks my thirty-seventh year in the business of important, antique works on paper, paintings and rare books. This span of time has been one of constant discovery and enlightenment for me, and hopefully for my friends and clients, as such works of art can give the most poignant understanding of the times from which they originate. Even after three decades, I often find myself enthralled by a map, a document, a book or a painting that literally and figuratively illustrates history, bringing the past into the present with vivid power.
The works included in this website and in our galleries exemplify such paragons of past eras. While they encompass a vast range of time and subject matter, they share an outstanding level of significance that has grown over the decades and centuries following their emergence. Whether they illuminate great turning points in history, memorialize landscapes of visions of destiny, or serve as breakthroughs in natural history, all of these pieces represent moments of unprecedented innovation or beauty. For the quality of timeless, unparalleled brilliance, they continue to resonate today more strongly than ever, and serve as inspiration for all of us in this dynamic and vital field.
