A Special Park West Event at Linda Le Kinff’s Studio and Home

 In Articles, Artists & Special Collections, By Morris Shapiro, Cruise Art Auctions at Sea, Linda Le Kinff

In a special unprecedented visit, Park West Gallery’s Director, Morris Shapiro, and Park West President, Marc Scaglione, along with others on the Park West team, visited the home and studio of Linda Le Kinff with 70 of Park West’s long-term clients. At Linda’s home, in the historic town of Rambouillet, guests were treated to a tour of the house and Linda’s adjoining studio filled with Le Kinff art of all types and periods.

Le Cirque by Linda Le KinffAlong with her husband, Jacques, Linda elected to present a never before seen collection of paintings on wood and canvas, collages, and a most unusual array of objets d’art, including sculpture bases composed of four painted panels and two ‘coffee tables’ created by mounting large painted panels on legs. Also included were two poetry books created by Linda on special hand-made papers, filled with original poetry, drawings, paintings and collages. These two highly intimate and compelling creations were a delight to the guests.

Most well received were Linda’s sculptures in bronze. These works had never before been offered to collectors and they ranged in size from small table top works to life-size bronzes installed in her backyard. Linda announced that she would be going to the studio foundry in Italy where the works are cast to supervise the casting of each sculpture ordered and the specification of the color (or patina) chosen by each collector.

As these inspiring and distinctive works, in an array of “Le Kinff-like” subjects (including musicians, dancers, acrobats and models) are done in small editions (from 3-12 examples), any Park West Gallery clients interested in viewing the collection may contact a Park West Gallery Sales consultant for more information.

Finally, Linda unveiled for the first time, the new catalog raisonée of her graphic works. The book, over five years in the making, was enthusiastically received and a signed and dedicated copy was made available to each couple in attendance.

There is no experience like meeting an artist and peering into the creative world in which they work and live. We at Park West are delighted to bring these enriching experiences to our clients, as they provide a deeper appreciation and understanding of the remarkably talented people who represent the art of our time. This was truly a unique experience that only Park West could bring.
