New York Collector Discovering Excellence

Albert Kotin, Untitled, 1950

Perle Fine, Roaring Wind, 1958

Giorgio Cavallon, Untitled, 1974-75

New York Collector is a blog devoted to anyone who is passionate about art. We chose “Discovering Excellence” as our slogan because we hope to be a resource for collectors, artists and scholars to find works of art that merit the accolade. At New York Collector, we want to share our appreciation of the beauty of art with all who will see it. People can view at any time artistic images and learn more about them. The Internet has made the world smaller in many regards, and we think that is a great advantage when it comes to bring patrons of the arts together.

Very Fine Art Books

The New York School Press publishing company is dedicated to the production of very fine art books. It is concerned primarily with the documentation of the unique American art of the postwar period. The books are printed by Cantz in Germany. Every effort is made to achieve exceptional quality and enduring value. The books are lavishly illustrated with hundreds of 9 x 12 inch full page color reproductions on acid free double coated heavy paper stock. The bindings are library quality.
