Dyck, Peter van (1684-1751)
Considered perhaps the greatest of the New York silversmiths, Peter Van Dyck was a New Yorker by birth and probably learned the craft from Bartholomew Le Roux, whose daughter, Rachel, Van Dyck married in 1711 (he later married Cornelia Van Varick). Peter Van Dyck was appointed a constable of the East Ward in 1708 and later served as assessor of the City of New York in 1730. Van Dyck was an active participant in the factious strife which kept New York in a...

Dzigurski, Alexander (1911-1995) View 2 Items
When Alexander Dzigurski was born on February 1, 1911, it was into a land already stained by conflict and entering a period of even greater adversity. An ethnic Serb, Dzigurski was born in the region of Backa, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Some miles to the south was the newly independent principality of Serbia. The kingdom of Serbia had originally been established in 1166, but after its defeat at the Battle of Kosovo in 1389 became part of the Ottoman Empire for the next...

Ede, Basil (1931) View 1 Item
Some measure of an artist must be the determination he brings to his career as well as the talent. Basil Ede is the living embodiment of that axiom. He has spent years doing the research and perfecting the techniques that have made him a fine artist, but it is a quality of commitment beyond even that which has made him one of the world's foremost ornithological artists. Carl W. Buchheister, President Emeritus of the National Audubon Society, wrote in the preface to Basil Ede's Birds: ...

Edwards, Thomas (1701-1755)
Born in Boston, the son of John and Sybil Edwards, Thomas learned the silversmithing trade from his father, and became a freeman in New York in 1731. He married Sarah Burr of Charleston, Massachusetts, in 1723, and served as a captain of the Artillery Company at Boston in 1753. An advertisement in the Boston News-Letter for May 8, 1746, concerning the settlement of his father's estate notes "The Goldsmith's business is carried on at the Shop of the deceased, as usual, by his Son Thomas ...

Ellenshaw, Peter (1913-2007) View 10 Items
Many people own work by Peter Ellenshaw and aren't even aware of it. If their personal movie collection contains works from the great films of Alexander Korda, the renowned works of Powell and Pressburger, or the entertaining movies of Walt Disney, odds are good that they own some Ellenshaw. Peter Ellenshaw was born William Samuel Cook Ellenshaw on May 24, 1913; however, his mother preferred the name Peter so that is what he was known by for the rest of his life. He...

Elrick, Stephen H. (1941) View 1 Item
The focus on abstract art during his college years nearly prevented Stephen Elrick from pursuing a career in art. While attending Carleton College in Minnesota, he took an art course during his sophomore year but, bored by the lack of attention to detail and realism, received a C+ and decided he had no future in art. After graduation, he joined the Peace Corps instead and followed that experience with a stint on the staff of a reform school just outside of Audubon, Pennsylvania. Deciding to...

Evans, Robert (1768-1812)
Robert Evans probably began his silversmithing trade sometime between 1790 and 1798, but the exact date is not known due to the lack of biographical information about him. He was married to Mary Peabody, and died intestate in 1812. His estate was administered by the silversmith Rufus Farnam, and Hazen Morse was listed as one of the appraisers.
