Phoenix Ancient Art, a second-generation ancient art business, will take part in the third edition of the Salon Point Art Monaco next month. Joining other collectors such as Alfredo Pallesi Art Gallery, De Bartha Galerie, Maison d’Art and Opera Gallery Monaco, Phoenix will present rare antiques from ancient cultures.
Some of the items in the Phoenix exhibit include: ‘The Emperor Licinius’, a small gold leaf bust from the 4e century A.D.; an ancient Greek Hellenistic gold and garnet jewelry set consisting of a necklace and a ring; a mosaic from the 2nd century A.D. and a mysterious marble portrait from Rome.
The Salon Point Art Monaco was first created in 2004 by Point Art Monaco, an organization working to promote art in the principality of Monaco. It is based on the economic interest of galleries including the Adriano Ribolzi Art Gallery, the Maison d’Art, the Galerie Filippo Grippaldi, the MC Fine Art and the M.F. Toninelli Art Moderne. This year’s event, which will be take place from the 1st to the 5th of August, will be held under the patronage of HRH Prince Albert II of Monaco.
