Carlton Hobbs has contributed to the international arts community for over 30 years as a high-end arts and antiques dealer. So far in 2013, his works have appeared at TEFAF Maastricht for the second year running and the Art and Antique Dealers League of America (AADLA) Spring Show.
The AADLA Spring Show took place from May 1 through May 5 at the Park Avenue Armory in Manhattan. It included hundreds of works of art, as well as lectures by museum curators and scholars, book signings, and other special events.
The oldest antiques and fine arts organization in the U.S., the AADLA promotes understanding of arts and culture among its members and within the public sphere. It is committed to serving collectors and patrons of fine art and antiques.
At this year’s show, Carlton Hobbs exhibited a collection of satirical portraits representing members of the court of King Louis XIV of France. The portraits, which are miniature ivory carvings, date from the early 19th century and are based on engravings from the late 17th century.
