Gallery Collaborates with Noted Art Dealers and Artists

Carlton Hobbs, a New York based independent dealer of fine antiques and historic objects, regularly collaborates with other noted art dealers to hold special exhibits in his New York gallery. Carlton Hobbs specializes in furniture and art from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, and has organized exhibitions with London-based fine art specialist Jean-Luc Baroni to display rare masterworks from the 16th to the early 20th centuries. In the exhibit, an oil painting by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, and other works by Delacroix, Salviati, and Parmigianino complemented selected pieces of furniture and sculpture of the gallery. A further joint exhibition with Jean-Luc Baroni is planned for January 2014.

In addition, the gallery has displayed forty pieces of 18th century Regency furniture by Thomas Hope in a benefit for the Sir John Soane Museum Foundation. It was the single largest collection of Thomas Hope pieces to come on the market since Hope’s estate was auctioned by Christie’s in 1917.

In conjunction with the world of fashion, the gallery has hosted the launch of Hamish Bowles’ and Alexandra Kotur’s book ‘The World in Vogue: People, Parties, Places.’ These events make the  gallery a sought-after place to find and display good taste, for example the well-known fashion blogger James Andrew of “What is James Wearing?” featured himself on a tour of Carlton Hobbs.
