From the desk of Jordan Berman
42 years ago I started buying Illustrated Art. It has progressed from a hobby to a passion and today qualifies as an addiction. Both the quantity of works and the quality of the artists have improved over the years, but what I want to tell you about is the care we invest in our art today. Approximately 90% of our purchases are sent for restoration and reframing as soon as we receive them.
Some of the pieces need very little work, some show a very recognizable improvement, and others undergo a metamorphosis that is truly remarkable.
A few examples:
Harold Anderson “Low Cost Per Mile”, Billboard Advertisement for American Oil Company
Sarah Stillwell Weber, Cover of The Saturday Evening Post Magazine, July 12, 1919
N.C Wyeth “The Christmas Ship in Old New York”
We are extremely fortunate to be associated with a master restorer who happens to be a great friend. If you would like to contact him, here is his information:
