One of the most-awaited fine art and antiques fairs in North America, the Winter Show, returns for its 69th season at New York City’s historic Park Avenue Armory, running from January 20–29, 2023.

The multidisciplinary show brings together some of the best curators and collectors from around the globe, featuring a vibrant mix of fine and decorative arts from ancient times to the modern day. All ticket proceeds benefit East Side House Settlement, a community organization serving the city’s most vulnerable populations.

The Nest is a Japanese two-panel folding screen from the Thomsen Gallery, dating to 1929. Hand-painted by artist Mōri Shūkō (1898–1949), the work uses ink, mineral colours, and gofun—a pigment made from powdered shell—to compose the neutral-hued scene of a bird circling above its nest.
