NEW YORK, NY.- The Winter Antiques Show celebrates its 57th year as America's most prestigious antiques show, providing museums, established collectors, dealers, design professionals and first-time buyers with opportunities to see and purchase exceptional pieces showcased by 74 exhibitors. This year, specialists in 17th to 19th century American furniture and decorative arts, old master drawings and European sculpture, and Southeast Asian art join this fully vetted show, which runs from January 21-30, 2011. From an Egyptian relief depicting Akhenaten through mid–century furniture by Gerald Summers and Gio Ponti, every object exhibited at the Winter Antiques Show is vetted for quality and authenticity. All net proceeds from sponsors, special events, and ticket sales support East Side House Settlement, a non-profit in the South Bronx providing social services to community residents.

Dan and Cynthia Lufkin, passionate patrons of the arts, are the Winter Antiques Show's Honorary Co-Chairs for 2011. Sallie Krawcheck, President of Global Wealth and Investment Management, Bank of America, is Chair of the Opening Night Party on Thursday, January 20th, with U.S. Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management, as sponsor of the event.

Young Collectors Night, an exciting evening for new collectors as well as art and design enthusiasts, will be held Thursday, January 27th. This year's event includes an exclusive "Meet the Designers" reception with New York-based interior designers. Architects and designers also host the "Expert Eye" series, featuring lectures and book signings by Thomas Jayne (The Finest Rooms in America), Pauline C. Metcalf (Syrie Maugham), and Peter Pennoyer (Peter Pennoyer Architects). The 2011 Special Guest Lecturer is Vanessa Remington, Assistant Curator of Paintings at the Royal Collection, on the 19th-century portrait miniature collection of Queen Victoria.

The 2011 loan exhibition, Grandeur Preserved: Masterworks Presented by Historic Charleston Foundation highlights more than fifty objects in an unprecedented collaboration among Charleston's leading cultural institutions as well as private collections. The exhibition has been organized by Historic Charleston Foundation, established in 1947 as an educational non-profit dedicated to the preservation of buildings, landscapes and cultural resources in Charleston and its historic surroundings. Important objects from Historic Charleston Foundation's two museum houses will be complemented with loans from The Charleston Museum, Drayton Hall, Gibbes Museum of Art/Carolina Art Association, and Middleton Place Foundation, and include many works that will be on view for the first time. A five-part lecture series related to the loan exhibition will be presented during the Show. Jeff Daly, formerly senior design advisor to the director at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and now head his own design firm, will design the loan exhibition, sponsored by Chubb Personal Insurance for the 15th consecutive year.

New exhibitors at the 2011 Winter Antiques Show:
Richard Philp: Established in 1966 in London, Richard Philp specializes in early portraiture, old master drawings, Medieval and Renaissance sculpture, antiquities, and 20th-century British and European drawings. The gallery is known for its exciting and eclectic mix of periods and cultures. Returning to the Winter Antiques Show after a hiatus, Philp's offerings include a range of Egyptian and medieval sculptures as well as a marble Byzantine capital with two eagles and carved foliage dating to the reign of Justinian (6th century).

Christopher T. Rebollo Antiques: Based in Mechanicsville, Pennsylvania, Rebollo focuses on 17th-19th century American Furniture and Decorative Arts, including paintings, metalwork and ceramics. The gallery specializes in choice examples of inlaid hardwood furniture with an emphasis on original condition and design. Rebollo will feature a Philadelphia Carved Mahogany Side Chair (c. 1768-1780) attributed to James Gillingham. The chair is in a remarkable state of preservation including a very early finish and retaining an historic Federal period seat covering. The carving is crisp with nuances intact.

Carlton Rochell Asian Art: Established in New York in 2002, Carlton Rochell focuses on important sculpture, paintings and decorative arts from India, Tibet, Nepal, Cambodia, Thailand and Indonesia prior to 1850. Rochell founded Sotheby's Indian and Southeast Asian Art Department in 1988, where he handled the sale of many significant private collections. Rochell will exhibit a figure of Shiva Adhikaranandi from India, Tamil Nadu, 12th century, Chola Dynasty, in copper alloy. The four-armed Shiva stands in a lively attitude upon a circular lotus pedestal, with his primary hands pressed together in anjali mudra in front of his chest. Together with Brahma and Vishnu, Shiva, the destroyer, is one of the three most important deities of the Hindu pantheon. While representations of Shiva Nataraja, Lord of the Dance, are quite common, the present manifestation is much less so. Images of Adhikaranandi are typically represented with Shiva having a bovine head, and those in which he has a human head, such as this one, are considerably rarer. This magnificent figure was made during the Chola dynasty, a period considered to be the zenith of bronze sculpture production in India,

Other selected highlights:
Christ blessing in a historiated initial "V" by Lorenzo Monaco. c. 1412-13 or 1420-1423. This splendid cutting comes from Corale H 74 (Florence, Museo Nazionale del Bargello), a choir book by Lorenzo Monaco. The manuscript, a Gradual, is one of three Choir Books made for the Church of the Hospital of Santa Maria Nuova in Florence. Scholars agree that the miniatures from these books convey the expressive force of the art of Lorenzo Monaco along with the elegance of his figures. The present miniature came to light in 1975 and was not systematically studied until its publication in the catalogue of the Lorenzo Monaco exhibition in 2006.

Les Enluminures
Six-Fold Screen by Stani Buncho. c. 1800. Ink and color on gold leaf. This rare and exceptionally high six-fold screen by the celebrated painter is from the artist's mature period in the fuku yamato-e style and depicts Mount Tsukuba; the mate to this screen depicting Mount Fuji is in collection of Utsunomiya Art University. Screens by this well-known painter are extremely rare.

Joan B. Mirviss, Ltd.
Portrait of Alice Hooper by John Singleton Copley, 1763. Oil on canvas. Copley painted this portrait of Alice Hooper, a daughter of Robert Hooper, at that time the wealthiest man in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Copley, only twenty-five years old, was at a pivotal point in his career. He had been painting professionally since 1753 when he was an astoundingly talented fifteen years old. In ten years time Copley achieved an impressive and self-taught mastery over the technical aspects of portraiture.

Hirschl & Adler Galleries, Inc.
Lieutenant John Templar Shubrick by Anson Dickinson. 1814. Watercolor on ivory. Templar Shubrick was born at Belevedere Plantation into one of Charleston's great military families. In the Navy, Shubrick saw action throughout the War of 1812, serving on the "Chesapeake" and the "Constitution," before being taken prisoner by the British during their capture of the "Hornet." After receiving commendations for bravery from Congress and the State of South Carolina, Shubrick left for Algiers to help negotiate the Treaty of Algiers. Upon returning to Washington, D.C. for the ratification of the treaty, Shubrick's ship disappeared. Neither he nor his men were heard from again.

Elle Shushan
Sleep by Albert Marque, marble relief, c. 1899. This graceful marble sculpture by Albert Marque, at once calm and serene, shows an allegory of Sleep, carved in low relief. Once owned by the photographer Ludovic Baschet, it was exhibited in Paris at the Salon de la Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts in 1899. It was a few years later in the Salon d'Automne of 1905, when Marque had two sculptures displayed alongside paintings by Matisse, Derain and Vlaminck, that the art critic Louis Vauxcelles famously described his work: "Amid the orgy of pure colour, the candor of the busts is surprising: Donatello among the Fauves." Hence was born the term 'fauve'.

Daniel Katz Limited
Complex Mask (Donati Studio Mask). Yup'ik; Kuskokwim Region, Alaska. c. 1890-1905. Wood, pigment, sinew, vegetal fiber, cotton thread, replaced feathers. This extraordinary Eskimo masks comes from the estate of the Surrealist artist Enrico Donati (1909-2008).Yup'ik Eskimo masks are possibly the highest form of expression of Native American art and profoundly influenced the Surrealist artists who had escaped Paris in the Second World War and settled in New York. The Studio Mask was originally acquired by Adam Hollis Twitchell who began trading along the Kuskokwim River in Alaska in 1905. Twitchell purchased many of his masks directly from the natives immediately after the ceremonial dances that he had witnessed.

Donald Ellis Gallery Ltd.
Game Board. c. 1890. This extraordinary playing board is notable for its colorful decoration and the painting of a house at its center. While images or shapes usually appear at the center of a game board, only a handful of examples with a house are known to exist. One side of the features a Parcheesi board, with "home" represented by a painting of a house. The other side depicts a checkerboard in red and black. The maker of this game board went beyond necessity and has created something that is truly celebratory. The object was probably made in Pennsylvania and resided in a Pennsylvania collection for over 40 years.

James & Nancy Glazer
Constellation Sculpture by Phil Powell and Paul Evans. c. 1953. Powell took up residence at his studio in New Hope, Pennsylvania in the late 1940s and began a decades long career honing his craft as a woodworker and artist. This unique illuminated wall sculpture ranks as one of his early masterpieces. The metalwork is by Paul Evans, who began working in Powell's studio after his graduation from Cranbrook. The metalwork consists of a metal frame overlaid in melted bronze with a volcanic texture, including the surrounds for the lamps.

Lost City Arts
Themed booths at the Winter Antiques Show:
Among the Show's highlights are the booths created around a theme or inspiration. This year, portrait miniature specialist Elle Shushan's booth will be inspired by the portico of one of Charleston's most famous houses. Hans P. Kraus, Jr. Fine Photographs will re-create a 19th century portrait photography studio, including a camera and backdrop. Gerald Peters Gallery will feature works by members of The Cornish Colony, including Thomas Wilmer Dewing, Augustus St. Gaudens and Dennis Miller Bunker.
