NEW YORK, NY.- Throckmorton Fine Art will be presenting an important selection of Pre-Columbian art and artifacts at the 60th Annual Winter Antiques Show. This is the gallery’s 28th year participating in New York’s best known art fair.

Spencer Throckmorton says, “The Winter Antiques Show has attracted the attention of leading curators and private collectors for decades. As dealers in Pre-Columbian artifacts we are delighted to see the top echelon of connoisseurs and experts in the field visiting our stand at this annual mid-winter event.

“We have been fortunate to acquire a number of Pre-Columbian artifacts from private collections, including several in California. The masks, yokes and figures we selected are vetted examples and come with scientific and scholarly reports.”

Kraige Block, Executive Director of Throckmorton, adds that, “This year’s WINTER ANTIQUES SHOW exhibition includes important Mayan artworks, among them a Mosaic Mask in jade dating to 600-900 BCE, as well as a greenstone Mezcala Monkey figure over ten inches tall, and a hardstone Mayan Hacha that had been in the Santa Fe collection of Michael Robbins. The Mayan mask is jade with original shell and obsidian inlays and cinnabar pigment. It is three inches high and was in the New York collections of Ramis Barquet and the Marin Gallery.

“We are also pleased to have a late Classic Polychrome Ceramic Vessel from the collection of Baleen McCormick c600-900 CE, and a wood Fang head from the late 19th early/ 20th century that had also been in the McCormick collection as well as in the Parisian collection of Charles Ratton, and the private collection of S. Thomas Alexander III in St Louis.”

These are just a few of the rarities on view at the stand of Throckmorton Fine Art.

For over thirty years, gallery founder Spencer Throckmorton has pursued a long held interest not just in in Pre-Columbian art, but also in Chinese jades, Asian sculpture and Latin American photography. Throckmorton has continually staged important exhibitions and published numerous publications on all of these subjects.

Throckmorton Fine Art has specialized in both vintage and contemporary photography of the Americas with a primary focus on Latin American talents. The East 57th Street gallery has featured the work of Edward Weston, Tina Modotti, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Martin Chambi, Lucien Clergue, Ruven Afanador, Marilyn Bridges, Graciela Iturbide, Flor Garduno, Mario Algaze, Javier Silva-Meinel, Valdir Cruz, and Christian Cravo.

Demonstrating the gallery’s commitment to connoisseurship, Throckmorton has achieved sales to such major museums as Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Getty and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston along with the Reina Sofia in Madrid. Portions of collections the gallery was instrumental in forming have been donated to the Louvre. The gallery loans examples on a regular basis to such significant institutions as the London National Gallery. Throckmorton has a number of loans at the current “Frida & Diego” exhibition at the Art Gallery of Toronto, and at the “Frida and Friends: The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo” at the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts.

Exhibitions at the gallery have consistently received favorable reviews from The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The New Yorker.

As the premier dealer offering extraordinary pre-Columbian art and vintage and contemporary Latin American photography, Throckmorton Fine Art participates in internationally acclaimed fairs, including The Winter Antiques Show, the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) show and Asia Week in New York. The gallery also showcases fine Chinese jades and Asian art. Kraige Block, Throckmorton Executive Director serves as a member of the Board of Directors of AIPAD.
