You know how they call New York City the City That Never Sleeps? Well that couldn't be more true. This past week saw me in Massachusetts (buying), Connecticut (picking up) and NYC (buying and selling). Those paintings I bought over the weekend are just too much! Oh, and I didn't post all of my latest news and finds here, so… Click the pics above to see them (and more) on my Instagram!
Have you heard that joke about two antique dealers on a deserted island? Well, business is great!!! Ha ha ha, never gets old.
December 4, 2017
So my trip to Massachusetts was for a house call, that I bought and then flipped to a friend and then I bought a bunch of stuff from that friend. Have you heard that joke about two antique dealers on a deserted island? Well, business is great!!! Ha ha ha, never gets old. That mask - wait a minute!!! You didn't think I really looked like that? Did you? Well, never mind. But I do think the mask is by William Wyman. I have an email in to a specialist, so I'll let you know what they say. And also while I was in Massachusetts, I bought that great little watercolor from Paris in 1948 - kinda has a John Marin feel - and that amazing icon portrait. Back in New York City I had set up on Sunday at the NY flea market and met loads of people (and another interior designer who bought a pair of chairs from me). I had also bought some great paintings on both Saturday and Sunday. First up is that incredible blue / orange / yellow / pink / purple abstract from the 1950's. As soon as I saw it, I absolutely had to have it! Now, scroll through to see the two still life paintings and the two sand / neutral colored paintings - they are all by the same artist. The two still life paintings are from 1964 and the two neutral ones are from 1957. I also bought that beautiful landscape from 1945 and you can check out the pic of my booth at the flea market. Today saw me at my storage unit to arrange and rearrange the stuff in there. I'm having a big sale, so if you see anything that you like - get in touch! Oh, and did you see that incredible portrait / surrealist landscape? It's one of my favorites. I bought it a couple years ago and I think I'm going to hang it in my apartment. There was more that happened, but you'll have to check out my Instagram. Keep up to date with my latest finds on my Instagram feed and feel free to drop me a line sometime…

It was February of 2002 and I had just moved into a six month sublet in Alphabet City in the East Village. With $600 and no job, I thought I could make it in New York City. So six months went by and after searching the classifieds in the Village Voice I finally found my own apartment in the West Village. And guess what… Click here to find out what Heather Karlie Fine Art is all about.

Modern Look Book started in 2015 as a new approach to vintage - making it modern. I wanted to mix in great modern and contemporary design, art and brands in vintage interiors. I gathered up a core group of friends and colleagues' work to debut it all alongside my vintage and antique finds. It was a huge success. Click here to read more!

Heather Karlie Fine Art started off in a 341 square foot apartment in New York's West Village. Early morning sourcing at the Chelsea flea market yielded armfuls of antique, period and modernist picture frames. A quick email or two, appointments made on the Upper East Side and a subway ride were all part of my routine. I was sourcing for the top galleries in NYC. Click here to read more!
