Carlton Hobbs

Carlton Hobbs always had the most magnificent booth at the International Fine Art and Antique Dealers Show (in October at the 7th Regiment Armory). He hasn't shown there in a number of years but he now exhibits all year-round in his own townhouse in Carnegie Hill: In 1999 at the Armory he showed this outrageous Venetian mirror, 71 x 70 inches, circa 1720. I scanned it from the catalogue of the show, which is now going in the garbage along with a ton of other stuff that I decided I can live without--I had to save this image though.
