Abstract:

Gisele Croes - "The Empress" "The Chinese art market is a 1 billion-a-year trade and it can be dangerous and frightening," she said. [...] She said her market was also long on cloak-and-dagger. "I've been accused of being everything from a smuggler to an agent for the Chinese secret police," Croes said. "The mystery of my reputation is only painful when it's a lie." Colin Sheaf, 53, deputy chairman of Bonhams auction house in London and the company's Chinese art specialist, spoke of Croes's reputation in the trade.... "Gisele is remarkable at finding treasure," Sheaf said. "She's part of the world's most elite group of dealers, handling a quality of Chinese merchandise that auction houses can only dream about." Baccarat French Glass and Crystal Maker Richard Feigen A well-respected art dealer, passionate collector and outspoken critic of cultural modes, Feigen (Yale Class of 1952), is just as likely to be found seated front and center bidding for a major painting at an auction house in New York City as selling one to the Louvre in Paris. A prominent figure in the world of art for more than 50 years, Feigen opened his first art gallery in Chicago in 1957, soon following with galleries in New York, and although his public persona as an art maven is well known, his private passions as a collector are notsuch artists as Bridget Riley, Allen Jones, James Rosenquist and Ray Johnson (whose estate the firm exclusively represents), and also handling major works by such artists as Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Brancusi, Beckmann and Dubuffet. Over the past 30 years, the firm has become increasingly active with old master pictures from the 14th through the 19th centuries. Among Richard L. Feigen and Co.'s clients are some 121 museums worldwide.
