We welcome the Linda Bernell Gallery of New York City, which specializes in Impressionist Art, to their first AVENUE Show. A number of the works Linda will be exhibiting have not been available at auction or on exhibition for over two decades, including Marc Chagall's Bouquet de fleurs (21½ by 24 inches, gouache and pastel on paper, signed lower left).

David Brooker Fine Art
Welcome back David Brooker Fine Art of Surrey, England, and Southport, Connecticut, returning for his second AVENUE Show. A specialist in 17th-19th century English and European paintings, David will be bringing this oil on canvas work, circa 1860, by French artist A. E. Poit, and other fine art.
Welcome Gallery 47 of New York City, which will be presenting this painting by Alfred August Janniot (1889-1969), a French sculptor-painter-illustrator. Originally commissioned in 1945 as part of the decoration of the Caron perfume salon on the Place Vendome, Paris, the painting has been privately owned since 1965 and exhibited only once in New York as the centerpiece of a Caron perfume event. Our March show will be the first ever time it has been offered for sale here.
And a huge shout out to FraMonT of Greenwich, Connecticut, which has been with us since the first AVENUE Show. FraMonT will showcase a selection of Impressionist and Modern works of art from the late-19th and early-20th centuries.
We look forward to seeing you at Antiques & Art at the Armory, September 21-24, at the Park Avenue Armory!
