Art dealer and collector Vincent Vallarino discusses a fine historical example of bringing Americans together
Vallarino Fine Art’s Studio is located in Millbrook, NY that is utilized for research, cataloguing, design, framing and restoration.

NEW YORK, NY.- Vallarino Fine Art has been in the art business for the past 50 years and owns everything they sell. They believe in their expertise through knowledge, scholarship and taste which is reassured by their experience and foresight within the art market. Fifteen years ago they became a private gallery because it was apparent that their audience was focused on what they owned and represented making their business intimate and personable unlike many larger galleries. VFA has a beautiful 3,000 square foot townhouse located at 222 East 49th Street in New York City, next door to Kathryn Hepburn’s old residence. There you will find in-situ viewing with mid-century furnishings as one would in their own home instead of a white box gallery setting. They also have a 6,000 square foot studio in Millbrook, New York 85 miles north of the city in the Hudson River Valley which was originally part of Henry Flagler’s family’s estate. Their two private destination locations are the perfect settings for viewing their vast inventories of Post War and Modern Art in the most private and safe accommodations one could dream of.

On June 13th 1942 the “New York at War” military parade and “Civilian Home Front Procession” supporting the mobilization of WWII occurred. Two and a half million spectators attended the parade and five hundred thousand people marched up Fifth Avenue from Washington Square to Seventy-ninth street making this the largest parade ever held in New York City.

The parade also coincided with “United Nations Day” six months after the “Declaration of the United Nations” which was the main treaty signed by twenty six governments formalizing the “Allies of WWII”.

This event brought more people together than had ever assembled for a cause to aid our allies and defeat Nazi Germany. It brought our nation together in the darkest of times, especially since America was just recouping from the great depression. The labor market changed radically as peacetime conflicts concerning race, gender and labor took on a special dimension bringing together national unity creating the greatest sacrifice for the American people for an even greater cause.

Johannes Schiefer, New York Parade, 1942 , Oil on Canvas

Johannes Schiefer painted “NEW YORK PARADE” one year after he and his family fled to the states from Nazi Germany. One can see the influence of German Expressionism in this painting exemplified by replicating reality, characterized by simplified shapes, bright colors and gestural brushwork.

Schiefer settled in Southampton, Long Island where he became the curator of the Parrish Art Museum for many years.

This is a fine historical example of bringing Americans together for a greater cause and should be a wake-up call for all of us in todays current climate.
