Park West CEO Continues to Offer Expert Commentary on Leonardo da Vinci Sale

Following the record-setting sale of Leonardo da Vinci’s “Salvator Mundi” (Savior of the World) for $450.3 million, many were left wondering why anyone would pay so much for a single work of art.

Most recently, two news outlets—WJR News Talk 960 and Michigan’s Big Show—turned to the expertise of Park West Gallery Founder and CEO Albert Scaglione for answers. Scaglione said he was “somewhat shocked” but not surprised at the price. He cited reasons such as the artwork being one of the few surviving paintings by Leonardo not owned by a museum.

Tim Yanke Talks About Inspiration

Metro Detroit’s Daily Tribune recently sat down with Park West Gallery artist Tim Yanke to discuss his Neo-West artwork. In the article, Yanke explains how losing his sister inspired him to feature themes and motifs from the American West in his art.

“I’m in Detroit, so feel a little displaced doing this style of art sometimes, but it’s in my soul—it’s in my psyche. It’s part of me. Why try to fight it? I embrace it,” Yanke says.

Yanke’s artwork, sold exclusively though Park West Gallery, is characterized by bold lines, vivid hues, and Southwestern imagery. His most popular works include his “Dragonfly” series and his “Yanke Doodle” series that depicts the U.S. flag.

Among his most recent works is “Miss America,” a painting featuring the Statue of Liberty, which brings to life Yanke’s love of his country and the values it represents.

“Whatever your viewpoint may be, it’s my point to say let’s get back to the basics,” Yanke says.

    I attend all the auctions while cruising and I have acquired some beautiful pieces over the years, recently a Peter Max. Park West is a wonderful auction house with a great collection to choose from on nearly any budget.

    I was interested in some paintings that were offered on the Ruby Princess in October as a special. Is it too late to get that deal?

    I purchased a Peter Max during a Mediterranean Cruise 3 or 4 years ago. The painting was of Muhammad Ali, how do I go about getting the current appraised value?

    We have several pieces from the two previous Park West Auctions. I would like to see more southwestern art such as Terpning, J.D. Challenger, Larsen and some Keathley. I would like to see more diversity at the auctions…it seems Goddard, Pino, Peter Max are always featured.

    We have cruised six different places with Royal Caribbean and have bought pieces of art on every cruise.
    So, we are out of wall space in our home, which is fairly large.
    However, we’ll find space, if we see something on our next cruise

    My wife and I go cruising every year on the P&O Pacific Dawn. We have an extensive collection of works of art by mainly Peter Max which we love and who is our favourite artist. These works of art were purchased from the Park West Gallery actions on these cruises over the past several years. We also have other works of art by numerous other excellent artists which we also enjoy immensely and which we also purchased on these past cruises from Park West Gallery auctions.
    This time, much to our surprise, and with somewhat huge disappointment, we found that when we bordered our yearly cruise on the P&O Pacific Dawn only just recently (November ’17) there was no Park West Gallery, no art auctions, no art at all on board!!
    This was always one of the biggest highlights of our cruises as we always add to our collection of art when we are there. Hopefully when we cruise again next year P&O will have resumed their association with Park West Gallery (fingers crossed).
    The wide and extensive range of art and artists which are displayed at these on-board auctions are always great as it is very hard, if not impossible, to find a one stop art gallery such as this in Australia.
    Park West Gallery auctions are a great way to buy art and they have always been up front, honest and genuine with us in our art purchases with them over the years.

    Yours Sincerely
    Bruce Scott

    I also enjoy cruising and attend every art auction on board. I learn so much. I am mad for Emile Bellet. I own 15 giclees, lithographs and serigraphs. I always make room on a wall somewhere. My dream is to own a Bellet painting. Thank you for making art that speaks to me so affordable.

    We went on the Royal Caribbean Voyager of the Sea in January, 2017, due to go again January 2018. The artwork is amazing, we spent up big and our house looks like a Parkwest Gallery. We are particularly fond of Thomas Kinkades work. Divan and his professional group of consultants were amazing with their knowledge and help along the way. Thank you Parkwest so much for the opportunity of owning some of the worlds most wonderful art pieces.

    We just sailed with P&O Cruises (November 2017) and was extremely disappointed to find no Art, No Art Auctions, No Park West Gallery, Nothing. The sea days were boring with no Art Auctions to attend and have fun at. If P&O aren’t going to have Art we won’t be sailing with them again.

    I went on my first cruise earlier this month on Norwegian’s Breakaway. It was an amazing experience, every part of the cruise was just outstanding. I have now fallen in love with Park West Galleries. I now own a Kinkade, a 13th century manuscript, a Peter Max, a collection of Norman Rockwell’s and several others. Park West made it easy for me to break into the world of collecting fine art, I am grateful. The staff of the gallery on board the ship was phenomenal! I look forward to many more cruises and I especially look forward to expanding my collection of art from Park West. You guys have a customer for life! Again, thank you.

    Our 2nd cruise with RCL instantly became an art cruise so 7 days later and 18 pieces later I think we are now collectors…

    Every cruise will now be an art gallery cruise so thumbs up to Park West and their team…
