In case you aren’t familiar, Hunt Slonem is a New York artist known for his exotic, vibrantly colored, neo-expressionist paintings and incredible collection of 19th Century gothic revival furniture which has filled his home – the historic Cordts mansion in Kingston, NY – for the past eight years. Hunt has had over 150 solo exhibitions and over 75 museums include his work in their collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. He is adored by celebrity collectors including Sharon Stone, Gina Gershon, Brooke Shields, Julianne Moore, Mandy Moore, Kate Hudson and J.Lo to name a few.

  • Elegant Thrifter,
    I was delighted to discover your blog and your new book!! Sensational!

    From the Right Bank,
    I know how you feel – sometimes I too wish I lived in NYC!!!

    Tina Steel Lindsey,
    You're the BEST!

    Indeed it will be fantastic – and I too am an Addict! I think some serious shopping damage if we ever shopped together! I sent an email to auction coordinator inquiring the name of the artist on the parrots… will let you know what I find out.

    Until Later,
    The Antiques Diva

  • Sounds like it is going to be a fantastic auction (I'm an auction addict).. I'll check out the catalogue. Are those parrots by Jesse Arms Botke? xo

    Online auction catalogs make life so much more fun!!! SHop away from the comforts of your home!!!

    Victorian Cobweb,
    You can do the same – or have your sis check the items out in person! How did I miss knowing you had a sister in New York?!
