For a few more days you can still catch Body and Soul: Masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance and Baroque Sculpture at Moretti Fine Art on East 80th St. in Manhattan. The show is collaboration between Fabrizio Moretti and Andrew Butterfield, a scholar, sleuth and dealer who has found more than his share of lost Old Master works.[audio:http://www.artmarketmonitor.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Andrew-Butterfield.mp3|titles=Andrew Butterfield]
Lance Esplund wrote about Butterfield in the Wall Street Journal:
The final frontier for art collectors, according to Andrew Butterfield, is Old Master sculpture. Mr. Butterfield—a treasure-hunter, scholar and dealer who recently brought to light Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s miraculous life-size bronze “Corpus” (1650s) and his “Modello for ‘The Moor'” (1653), the finest extant Bernini terracotta—has proved himself to be an expert on Renaissance and Baroque sculpture.
Art Market Monitor spoke to Butterfield a few weeks ago. You can listen to highlights from that interview through the player above.
