The International Show returns to the Park Avenue Armory for its 27th edition

Bringing together dealers of art, antiques, and design, the International Show returns to the Park Avenue Armory for its 27th edition from October 23 through 29. Previously known as the International Fine Art and Antiques Show, the fair’s pared-down name is one of several changes—including the October 27 launch of the Young Collectors Party and a section dedicated to 20th-century and contemporary art and design—intended to attract a broader audience. “We have a loyal following among collectors and interior designers, but the idea now is to cultivate new generations of collectors and art lovers,” says fair cofounder Anna Haughton. Highlights from New York private dealers and galleries include the Olmec jadeite figurine from the Middle Preclassic period (900–300 b.c.), pictured here, offered by Ancient Art of the New World, a partnership; a headless but sensuous Roman statue of Venus at Ariadne Galleries; and from Schillay Fine Art, Four and Twenty Blackbirds, a 1998 watercolor by Andrew Wyeth, in which the titular birds attack an ominous figure in a pumpkin patch—an image not out of place in late October.
