An Educated Collector is Our Best Client
Welcome to our modern and contemporary art boutique! Please check out the "About Us" section at the bottom to learn about our history, contact us and/or to arrange to visit our Chelsea, Manhattan showroom. We'd love to meet you! You can also find us on Artsy, Artnet, Artspace and 1stDibs - but our small, family owned business has been selling fine art, rare books, coveted exhibition ephemera and conversation pieces online before all of them! For the privacy of our clients and for ease in viewing, we typically remove works from this website after they have sold out - and we do not publish or share sold prices.

She is a professor of art at Fairleigh Dickinson University.
“Frances (and her room mates) are annoyed I have been using their (my) room in daytime to Zoom during the pandemic. Frances’ innovative take on life with roommates is a constant revelation of what a former stray, sick, disabled kitten can grow up to accomplish. Frances appears daily on IG @adventuresoffrances.”
