With the first auction of the fall season on Thursday, we look forward to a number of exciting evening events to supplement our busy September through December schedule of sales. On Monday evening Swann and The New Yorker co-hosted a party celebrating cartooning and illustration. Wednesday, September 12 is a  evening with Rick Propas, Swann's Fine & Vintage Writing Instruments specialist, who is hosting the Big Apple Pen Club, along with any pen enthusiast who would like to swing by, preview pens and have a glass of wine. 

Joel Smith's talk on September 27 is on Edward S. Curtis, The Modern Humanist Document
and the Printed Page as Art Object.
Thursday, September 27 we are pleased to welcome Joel Smith, the Richard L. Menschel Curator of Photography at the Morgan Library & Museum, who will speak on Edward S. Curtis, the Modern Humanist Document, and the Printed Page as Art Object. RSVP by September 24 by emailing events@swanngalleries.com.

Vincent van Gogh's only etching, Homme à la Pipe: Portrait du Docteur Gachet,
is among the prints that will be shown at Artcurial, October 4-8.
In early October, Swann's International Auctioneers partner Artcurial will host a preview of our October 31 Old Master Through Modern Prints auction at their Paris location. 

Norman Lewis's Magenta Haze, 1947, is the inspiration for Swann's October 16 African-American Fine Art reception.
On October 16, we'll celebrate the opening of Swann's African-American Fine Art preview with a 1940's and Jazz-inspired cocktail party we're calling Magenta Haze. On the 17th, Swann is hosting a launch party for Gordon Weiss's new non-fiction book The Cage.

Finally, stay tuned for updates on November and December, as we plan events celebrating an historical American ocean liner, contemporary art, and a very unique group of vintage movie posters!
