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of our clients and for ease in viewing, we typically remove works from this website after they have sold out - and we do not publish or share sold prices.
Robert Smithson, Mirror Trail 5730 (Hand Signed), 1968-1969
Mirror Trail 5730 (Hand Signed), 1968-1969
Interestingly enough this was not the original, intended design. The original design was of a photograph showing the date, 730, written in Hebrew letters in red earth on a chalky ground. The work was titled: 5730-RED CLAY FROM HEBRON PLACED AT MT. MORIAH. Hebron is a city some nineteen miles south of Jerusalem, and Mount Moriah is the Temple Mount, a site sacred to the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths. A contemporaneous article in October 2012 edition of Art Forum describes the story in more detail.) The present work is signed and dated by the artist - extremely rare. Hand signed editions of this print rarely come to market - the last time was a decade ago.
