The Winter Show 
Celebrates its 
70th Anniversary 
in Style

by Benjamin Genocchio  

The Winter Show returns to the Park Avenue Armory in New York for its 70th Anniversary Platinum Jubilee edition in 2024, having grown to include over 70 leading art, antiques, antiquities, and design dealers from around the world presenting art and collectible objects spanning from ancient times to the present.

The Winter Show is a benefit event for East Side House Settlement, which provides education and workforce development services as gateways out of poverty for residents of the Bronx and Northern Manhattan. All ticket sales proceeds go towards East Side House’s life-changing programs.

Taking place January 19–28, The Winter Show is one of the largest and most respected antique and fine art fairs in the United States in terms of the quality of exhibitors and the material they exhibit. Every object is vetted for authenticity, date, and condition by a committee of experts from the United States and Europe. The Show has a robust program of panel discussions, talks and events, and, this year, a special exhibition titled Focus: Americana, showcasing exceptional American folk art and design.

“The 70th Anniversary edition continues to exceed expectations with the quality of works our esteemed dealers are bringing,” Director Helen Allen says. “Collectors, connoisseurs, and the curious alike will find displays ranging time, material, geography, cultures and makers, but what unifies these diverse highlights is the unique standard of quality we maintain through our partnership with exhibitors.”

Exhibitor highlights this year run the gamut of delights from all kinds of paintings, sculptures, tapestries, books, jewelry, and of course furniture and other design objects — this fair is an Aladdin's cave of treasures to indulge the mind and senses.

The antique highlights this year, include, at Clinton Howell, a circa 1675 rectangular red japanned table constructed in pine with oak linings to the drawer, believed to be either English or Dutch in origin. Howell also has a rare Regency mahogany writing table in the manner of Thomas Hope, circa 1810, that has unusual carved legs composed of geometric shapes.  

Thomsen Gallery, an esteemed dealer in Japanese arts, will present a selection of works of Japanese art from the 15th century to the present, including folding screens, gold lacquer writing boxes, tea caddies and accessory boxes dating from the early 20th century to the present alongside signed bamboo Ikebana baskets, including works by the great Ikebana masters Rokansai, Chikuunsai and Chikubosai, as well as post-war artists Ueda Shōunsai and MorigamiJin.

Contemporary makers and 20th-century design are also well represented. Maison Gerard is bringing a monumental contemporary work by master woodworker Michael Coffey. Milord Antiques has one of the highly coveted acid-etched and patinated brass "Eternal Forest" series coffee tables by Philip and Kelvin Laverne, which will be on view alongside an important polychromed welded steel "Deep Relief" Buffet by Paul Evans. Around the walls, gleefully decorated with handmade artistic wallcoverings from Fromental, are several highly collectible mirrors by iconic designers such as Line Vautrin and Max Ingrand.
