Since the opening of our first exhibition, Lost Splendor, in January of 1994, we have been privileged to show at Didier Aaron, Inc., the Manhattan gallery of the Parisian antiques and fine arts dealers. Hervé Aaron and Alan Salz, directors of the gallery, are both consummate professionals and have been intimately involved in the conception and realization of each show. Likewise, Charles Ryskamp, former director of The Frick Collection and the Morgan Library, has played a central role as a supporter of our work. Three of our exhibitions have been held under the patronage of The Frick Collection to benefit The Frick Art Reference Library.
We also exhibit regularly at the Galerie de Bayser in Paris, France's foremost Old Master drawings dealers. Their gallery, a beautiful suite of rooms in a Parisian town mansion, is directed jointly by a family with a remarkable erudition and passion for drawings. We have been honored to present two of our Paris exhibitions under the patronage of the Vicomte Olivier de Rohan, President of the Société des Amis de Versailles, to benefit the Society.
We have also been invited to exhibit in Hamburg, Germany; Gstaad, Switzerland; Brussels, Belgium; and at the Château de Villandry in the Loire Valley.
Central ParkCENTRAL PARK, held at Didier Aaron, Inc. in October of 2003 under the patronage of The Frick Collection, deserves special mention as it marks an important shift in emphasis in our work. The major drawings in the exhibition were over a dozen large-format watercolors of ornaments and architectural details, drawn in full-scale elevations. The drawings retain the intense realism of all our work but rival the scale of contemporary painting—several are over six feet long or high. Subjects were chosen for their purity of line and graphic qualities, making this show particularly visually arresting. We have only begun to explore working at this new scale.
