What happens when the works of 18th-century portraitist Thomas Gainsborough and late 20th-century Pop artist Tom Wesselman come face to face? The answer is an art show of mammoth significance. Such was the case at the Los Angeles Art Show, held this past week at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
For the third year in a row, M.S. Rau wowed the crowds with an impressive array of artistic masters. From 16th-century master Pieter Breughel the Younger’s Battle Between Carnival and Lent to 20th-century legend Norman Rockwell’s Billiards is Easy to Learn, the M.S. Rau booth held a constant audience, with fair-goers in awe. Like nowhere else in the show, gasps were heard as visitors entered the booth, drawn in for peek at the work of some of the biggest names in art history. These artistic forefathers proved a marvelous compliment to the future masters of 21st-Century art nearby. The show proved to be a huge success for M.S. Rau, with excitement already brewing for next year’s event.
Presented by the Fine Art Dealers Association, the Los Angeles Art Show is renowned as the crowned gem of the citywide Los Angeles Arts Month. It is heralded as the largest and most significant art exhibition on the West Coast featuring 100 exhibitors from around the globe and over 15,000 works from artists spanning the last five centuries.
M.S. Rau’s appearance at the Los Angeles Art Show officially kicks off our 2011 show season. Next up is the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art, and Antique Show, in West Palm Beach February 18th-22nd. For tickets and updates on other future shows around the country please visit our Upcoming Events page here.
