In the future Ed and Hyacinthe Baron will exhibit only on important
virtual art gallery web sites on the world-wide-web. absolutearts.com,
barongallery.com, barongalleries.com, artnet.com, saatchigallery.com. In
the past the artist and her manager husband of 39 years maintained art
galleries nationwide. Hyacinthe always enjoyed meeting collectors visiting
her galleries on Madison Avenue, NYC, Palm Desert and Beverly Hills, CA.
They received the maximum number of visitors, as many as 500 at one time,
who can physically attend a gallery opening and possibly 1000 over a
month. The limitations of attendance are a built in along with the lease,
rent, advertising and other business expenses.
In the 2000’s they discovered a more economical and successful venue on
the Internet. Since 2003 Hyacinthe Baron exhibited her art on a Premiere
Portfolio on absolutearts.com and received 500 to 5000 visitors a day and
as many as 11,000 and more viewers in a month. Her works receive even more
views on the search engines due to the popularity of this site.
Art Collectors can also revisit favorite works in her portfolio frequently
at their convenience. This allows for a greater degree of intimacy for
potential art buyers and the artworks they are contemplating buying.
Life comes full circle as from out of the past art collectors contact the
artist to describe the joy Hyacinthe’s work has brought to their family
for almost 50 years. Delighted to be able to discover the artist again and
to reach her and to learn of the current value of the works they own.
Many would not think of parting with their “Hyacinthe” and are now able to
insure the works and pass them on to their children. Others are downsizing
and reluctantly must make their piece available again to the Art Market.
Hyacinthe must validate the works and issue a Certificate of Authenticity
and a Provenance.
To the artist’s delight she discovers the whereabouts of many of the early
paintings she thought lost to her forever. In the past art galleries did
not feel it necessary to inform the artist when a sale was made.
1962: Christopher Street, Greenwich Village, NYC: The first art gallery
exhibition of large paintings on the themes of Motherhood and Womanhood by
New York City Artist Hyacinthe Kuller-Baron, (a companion of many of the
artists of the 50’s and 60’s, Jackson Pollok, Franz Kline, Marcel
Duchamp.Wilhelm DeKooning, John Chamberlain, George Segal and so many
others, Bob Dylan, Bill Cosby, Joan Baez, Judy Collins.) A young couple
admires and purchases an oil painting of a young mother and child. An
older sophisticated couple buys a large 4ft by 5ft canvas of three women
based on the mythic image of the Three Graces and painted in a modern
Distributed exclusively by the fine art dealer Herbert A Starr,
expensively framed, Hyacinthe’s original oil paintings find their way to
art galleries nationwide: W&J. Sloane, Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue,
NY: Merrill Chase, Chicago, Howard Mann in New Hope, Pa., Graphic Art
Galleries, La Cienega and Todd Galleries, Beverly Hills, CA and N.J. and
so many others. Art collectors buy most every painting the prolifically
inspired young artist creates and exhibits. Expensive for the times but
due to an economic boom, a frenzy of art collecting of Hyacinthe’s art and
other young living artists begins in earnest.
Today Hyacinthe’s contemporary images of women, and mothers and children
stand as icons of modern artistic expression of the beauty of the female
spirit. Early paintings are considerably rare as the artist no longer
creates originals on these themes. The artist moved on to produce a
diverse body of work that includes sculptures, videos, published books and
ultimately fashion collections created from the love for fashion that
always informed and inspired her art.
Currently Hyacinthe’s paintings begin in the $35,000’s. Most are in the
$70,000.00 to $350,000 and up price range. A demand for Giclees of
original paintings has been created. Often they replace an original that
has been sold or are shared with family members. (Photographic prints
digitally rendered on canvas are touched by the artist’s hand and signed
by Hyacinthe. Custom created in limited numbered editions or open ended
and available in the affordable $3,500.00 to $7,500.00 and up price range.)
Ed Baron has stated: “It is not only the value that makes Icons of
Hyacinthe’s paintings from the past, or that they were sold at auctions
and in galleries, it is the artistic talent, mastery of technique,
intrinsic knowledge of the figure, and display of undeniable inspiration
and emotion. Perhaps it is the sense of movement in time, capture of
moments before or after, the loose brushstrokes and dripping of paint,
stark shadows that delineate form and draw the viewer in to complete the
figures and to see images derived from their own imaginations that has
brought Hyacinthe’s art full circle.
In the future Art Gallery websites on the Internet will feature ongoing
Exhibitions of Hyacinthe’s Collector's Art from the Past as they continue
to become available. New collectors will join those from the past:
Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Martha Raye,
Malcolm Forbes, Maude Adams, Joan Lunden, Jack Benny, Rod McKuen, Fred de
Cordova, Joan Crawford, Charles Mingus, Ambassador and Mrs. Bartle Bull,
Princess Luciana Pignatelli, John Lennon, Hal Linden, and so many more,
private collectors and public institutions.
As in the past during the “gallery days” Collectors can negotiate the
terms of a purchase directly with the Barons or through her portfolio at
