Tarbell Insurance Exec Portrait Brings $10K

While in downtown Philadelphia briefly this past weekend I noticed a large building, now condos, and wondered what it used to be. Turns out the words above the door spell out the Insurance Company of North America. What a great place to hang one of the portraits of former company executives that sold at Pook & Pook November 19. Looking through the results today, I noticed at least two of the lots ended at more than $10,000, including one by Edmund Charles Tarbell. A portrait attributed to Robert Field also brought $10,000. Unfortunately the lot by Pittsburgh painter James Reid Lambdin, father of floral painter George Cochran Lambdin, brought only $125.00.

In addition to my work at Stripe Specialty Media and American Vintage Market with Danielle Colby of American Pickers on History, I am also involved with Calendar of Antiques and Urban Art and Antiques. My work has allowed me to speak on the phone with notable architects, filmmakers and politicians including Steven Holl, Julian Schnabel and North Carolina Congressman Walter Jones. I have a Graduate Certificate in Public Relations from NYU, a Masters in Urban Studies from the University of Akron and am author of a chapter on Ayn Rand’s life in New York in the book Literary Trips: Following in the Footsteps of Fame. I love the visual arts, music of all kinds, cities and urban living, bicycle riding, cats and vegetarian cooking. I am happy to have lived in both New York and San Francisco and to now reside in Dallas.
