The Curator's Eye Adds Rare, Antique Musical Instruments Leading dealers such as Christophe Landon and Gregory Singer, as well as Charles Cheriff Galleries and ILIAD, exhibit exceptional and rare musical instruments on The Curator's Eye.
News-Antique.com - Aug 01,2012 - NEW YORK - The Curator's Eye (http://www.CuratorsEye.com/), the global high-end art marketing organization, recently launched a new category featuring exceptional and rare musical instruments. The inaugural members of the new category include prominent dealers of antique stringed instruments such as Christophe Landon Fine Violins and Gregory Singer Fine Violins as well as New York's leading antiques dealers such as ILIAD and Charles Cheriff Galleries.
The pieces listed demonstrate the rarity and historical importance that is consistent throughout the site, making this category a welcome addition to The Curator's Eye. Instruments on offer represent a unique combination of craftsmanship, history of music, and history of decorative arts. The exceptional items include a late seventeenth century Italian viola da Gamba by a known maker, a rare gem for early music enthusiasts; a one-of-a-kind violin from the late Eugene Fodor, a violin virtuoso and one of the most dazzling performers of classical music in the late twentieth century; a large Louis XV Style 6-Leg Grand Erard Piano by François Linke, so exemplary of the great turn-of-the-century ébéniste's grand style; and an important Art Deco piano that was first exhibited at the 1925 Exposition in Paris, a seminal moment in twentieth century decorative art history, which was documented in numerous French periodicals of the era.
Since its launch in 2011, The Curator's Eye has been connecting leading dealers with serious buyers worldwide across a wide spectrum of categories. These range from fine art, antiquities, ethnographic objects, decorative arts, manuscripts, and rare maps. The site excels at providing specialty categories that are difficult to find on other art listing sites, with personalized, white-glove service from a dozens of dealer representatives across the globe.
Founder and CEO Sarah Hollenbeck Valelly emphasizes, "The site's targeted online reach and its cross-pollination potential will serve musical instruments as well as it does other fine collectibles."
Seol Park, Regional Director of the New York Metropolitan Area, who spearheaded this strategic partnership says, "We are happy to launch this category with dealers who stand by the quality of instruments they offer and think highly of one another.
