Signed Figurines

With the Winter 2017 Release, we are giving collectors the special opportunity to purchase Signed Figurines directly from the artists. The Signed Figurines will replace the Official Autographed Editions in this particular release. Some important differences to note between the Signed Figurines and Official Autographed Editions are: 1) The Signed Edition figurines will only be hand-signed by the artist, they will not be hand-numbered, or be part of a limited edition. 2) The Signed Figurines will not come with a Certificate of Authenticity. Instead, they will come with a Certificate of Artistry. 3.) The edition numbers of the Signed Figurines will initially be under 1E/0500. As orders for the Signed Figurines increase, we cannot guarantee that the edition numbers will remain under 1E/0500. 4) The price of the Signed Figurines is determined by the individual artists. 5) Not all of the Winter 2017 figurines are available as Signed Editions.

Dance of the Lipizzans

by Lori Musil

NEW Beauty of the Breed

The story of the Lipizzan has many dramatic twists and turns, starting in the 1600s when it was developed as a breed that could be taught to do difficult motions on command and with balletic grace and precision - including highly controlled, stylized jumps known as “airs above the ground.” - and almost ending in World War II when the breed was saved from extinction by American troops. With “Dance of the Lipizzans,” a masterpiece by a New Mexico equine artist, the legend lives on.

We caught up with Lori in Lincoln, Nebraska, where she was sorting through the contents of an architectural antique store she had inherited from her recently passed great-aunt. Although there was sadness to the occasion, in a way it was the perfect time and place to catch Lori in a reflective mood, because “the roots of my art are in this place.”

Lori grew up in Tucson, the daughter of a handyman and a kindergarten schoolteacher, but from the age of five she spent her summers with her great-aunt in Lincoln. There, to keep her occupied, she was given the job of touching up the antiques that needed to be repainted. For diversion, Lori would sometimes let her imagination take over and paint designs and scenes on old milk cans and coal scuttles.

One day a customer purchased one and, according to Lori, “That gave me my start in the art world."
