When I moved to New York, Georgina Kelman was one of the first to greet me upon arrival. She and I had corresponded in regards to Dandyism.net, as she has a certain fondness for dandies, beaux, lions and wits of the Belle Epoque and Art Deco periods. In fact, it’s her professional specialty. Kelman deals in works on paper, many of which include top-hatted gentleman going about their unhurried lives. Here’s a sampling. Inquiries may be made through her website.
