Happy New Year from all of us at M.S. Rau Antiques! Having just completed 2011, our most successful year ever, the first quarter of 2012 promises to be even more exciting! Beginning on January 18th through the 22nd, M.S. Rau will be present at the annual Los Angeles Fine Art Show, where we will be offering original works of art by Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, Gauguin, Winston Churchill and many other great artists. As our truck travels the I-10 corridor from New Orleans to L.A., we will be stopping at clients’ homes along the way, fulfilling their requests to see specific items amid the décor of their own homes. If you happen to live anywhere between the two cities, please peruse our website, find those perfect pieces, call us and we will gladly bring it to your homes for you to see as well.
February is even more eventful as we visit those snow birds who headed south for the winter to both east and west coasts of sunny Florida. The annual Naples Art, Antique and Jewelry show will run from February 9th through the 13th while the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art and Antique Show will follow February 17th through the 21st. From our fine art to rare silver by Tiffany, Gorham, Paul Storr, Hester Bateman, Myer Myers and others, to porcelain, objets d’art and the finest antique furniture available, these two shows are not to be missed. Once again, we are pleased to show you items in your home should you be interested.
Additionally, M.S. Rau’s very own Rau for Art Foundation will be accepting submissions to its inaugural art scholarship competition through February 15th. Find out more at www.rauforart.com.
The Grand Finale of the first quarter of 2012 will undoubtedly be the 100th anniversary celebration of the gallery, owned by the Rau family throughout its duration. The weekend of March 9th, 10th and 11th, we will be hosting several events in the gallery welcoming our clients to view our most magnificent collection ever.
For those familiar with our gallery, you can appreciate how incredible this event will be. To potential new clients I welcome you to visit and help us celebrate 100 years of selling the finest, rarest and most desirable collectables found anywhere. Come help us as we celebrate 100 Years of Excitement throughout 2012.
