THE ENLIGHTENED PATRONAGE OF DOMINIQUE AND JOHN DE MENIL: HOUSTON, NEW YORK, PARIS

Aviva

For decades, many curators and collectors have categorized illustration art qualitatively apart from American art. Today a Rockwell painting can sell for more than an Edward Hopper oil! As a result, more obscure illustrators are rising to stardom, and categories such as Pin-Up, Pulp and Commercial Advertisement are seeing dramatic increases in demand, and in value.

Aviva will break down the categories of Illustration Art - discussing which artists are most sought-after, who the up-and-coming stars are, and what to look for when collecting illustration.

Aviva is Vice President and Director of American Art for Heritage Auctions. She graduated magna cum laude in Art History from Yeshiva University in New York and is an adjunct professor of Appraisals and Valuation in the Art Administration Master's Program at New York University. Aviva also lectures at museums and institutions nationwide.

 

May 2 : Aviva Lehmann

July 9 : Ronnie Pirovino
