Regatta (1875) by James E. Buttersworth
Park Avenue Armory, Upper East Side Until Sunday February 1 2015
History buffs have 73 booths of decorative housewares, furniture and tableaux to riffle through at this vintage art and antiques fair. Perhaps take a look at some hard-core antique-armor from collector Peter Finer. Those obsessed with kittens can gawk at one of the oldest pieces—an Egyptian bronze seated cat (715–332 B.C) believed to be used to hold the body of a mummified feline. There are also daily lectures and works in preview especially for the show, including “Audubon to Warhol: The Art of American Still Life”. Entrance proceeds benefit East Side House Settlement, a community nonprofit in the Bronx. Go to winterantiquesshow.com for more information.
