DENVER, PA.- Noted art dealer Patrick Orbe has joined Morphy Auctions’ team of experts as special consultant to the company’s Fine Art department. In his new position with Morphy’s, Orbe will oversee all fine art consignments, assessing and cataloging works for authenticity, attribution, condition and value. Additionally, he will manage all consignor and buyer relationships that pertain to fine art entrusted to Morphy’s.

Based in Bergen County, New Jersey, Orbe has been an established art dealer in the New York metro area for the past 23 years, advising and selling mostly to a private clientele. He operates his business by appointment only from a gallery space in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. His educational credentials include continuing scholarship at The Art Students League of New York, Pratt Phoenix School of Design, NYU School of Continuing Education, and Bergen Community College (N.J.).

Orbe’s métier is American and European art of the 19th and 20th centuries, with a particular expertise in Hudson River school, modern period, contemporary and French academic paintings. Orbe also works with living artists who are launching or developing their careers. His stellar network of contacts in the trade includes a number of prestigious galleries.

“We are especially pleased that Patrick has joined our team of experts,” said Morphy Auctions CEO Dan Morphy. “His knowledge and connections will enable us to build a strong Fine Art department, an aspect of our business that is going to become increasingly important to us. Some do not realize that Morphy’s is a full-service auction house with a roundtable of top specialists managing our departments. The only missing link was someone highly knowledgeable in fine art who could handle the influx of art consignments coming to us from estates and other consignors. We found the perfect person for the job in Patrick.”

Orbe’s initial consultancy work for Morphy’s will be in preparation for a Feb. 8-9, 2013 Fine Art and General Antiques auction. The sale features an excellent collection of 19th and early 20th-century paintings as well as select individual consignments.
