About The Winter Show

The Winter Show is the leading art, antiques, and design fair in America, featuring many the world’s top experts in the fine and decorative arts. The Fair was established in the mid 1950s as a benefit for East Side House Settlement and, by the end of that decade, had firmly established itself as the leading event of its kind in the United States. Over the course of its 67 year history, the Fair has been held at the historic Park Avenue Armory all but three years.

Due to the COVID pandemic, the Show’s 2021 edition will take place online January 23 – 31. We are delighted to present 60 international dealers showcasing a dynamic mix of works dating from ancient times through the present day along with exclusive programs and tours. Each object is being digitally reviewed by a panel of experts from the United States and Europe to maintain the Show’s standards.

While we are not able to come together in person, we hope you will join us for the Show’s
virtual VIP Preview (January 19 – 21) benefiting East Side House, a community-based organization serving the Bronx and Northern Manhattan. East Side House’s programs focus on education and technology as gateways out of poverty and as the keys to economic opportunity.

A contribution at any level will support East Side House’s critical COVID-19 relief work. Since the pandemic hit, East Side House has been on the front lines, making sure families have what they need to survive, including access to healthy food. Your 100% tax deductible donation will provide early access to the The Winter Show Online and, what’s more, will provide support to one of our nation’s most vulnerable communities.  No part of sales made by exhibitors is received by East Side House.

Vetting

Vetting is the process which aims to authenticate works of art and antiques.
Each year every object that is presented on the Show floor at The Winter Show is vetted for authenticity, date and condition by a committee of more than 120 experts from the United States and Europe. The strict vetting regulations and vettors’ expertise ensure that buyers can purchase with confidence.

Please note that this year, as our team of experts are not able to examine works in person, the works of art presented at The Winter Show Online have been reviewed from photographs and description only by our Online Review Committee to the best of their abilities. The works presented are reflective of the integrity and excellence of our exhibitors and The Winter Show. As the works have not been examined in person, The Winter Show and East Side House does not accept liability for any discrepancy between the image of the work presented and the actual work of art. Each dealer guarantees the works they are selling as described.
