I last held a sale on Louis Icart etchings about a year ago. It went well, so I decided to hold another one. The timing before Christmas is good for collectors, decorators or anyone looking for a great present. The sale starts today and will continue for exactly three weeks, finishing on December 8, 2010. The next day, prices will return to normal. This is a serious sale with prices slashed to wholesale levels not seen since the 1970s. Contact me soon as the selection will get smaller as the sale nears the end.
Total service is available, from custom French mats to silk mats with 24K gold leaf frames, all done to museum standards. If you’re in a hurry, there’s overnight shipping, but try to avoid that as the cost can be dear. Every etching comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Every single etching is on sale, including some very rare and desirable ones that I’ve recently acquired. The list includes Bubbles, Guest, Before the Raid, Leda and the Swan and Masked, among others.
Conservation (cleaning and restoration) services for your Icart etchings are also available. Light darkening and foxing can be reversed in most cases. The cost is $250 per etching if the etching is glued between a mat and a board. $200 if there is no mat, but the etching is glued to a board. $150 if the sheet is loose. Shipping and insurance are additional.
