A collectible (collectable or collector’s item) is any object regarded as being of value or interest to a collector (not necessarily monetarily valuable or antique). There are numerous types of collectibles and terms to denote those types. An antique is an old one. A curio is a small, usually fascinating or unusual item sought after by collectors. A manufactured collectible is an item made specifically for people to collect. They are items of limited supply that are sought for a variety of reasons including a possible increase in value. In a financial sense, collectibles can be viewed as a hedge against inflation. The most popular collectibles list includes: advertising collectibles, art, books, magazines, cards, stamps, coins, film, music and television related objects, memorabilia. Virtually anything in the world can enter this beautiful world. The urge to collect unusual and fascinating objects is primeval and not limited to humans. The Renaissance Cabinet of Curiosities was an antecedent both of modern museums and modern collecting. (wikipedia.org)

    Petre Velicu, Arlechin, pastel, 40×32 cm, signed lower left with black

    ,
    Petre Velicu was born in 1950 in Bucharest and studied art at the Institute of Fine Arts Nicolae Grigorescu with Gheorghe Șaru. Beneficiary of the Theodor Aman scholarship, granted by the Bucharest City Hall until 1980, begins, after this date, to participate in group exhibitions (Orizont galleries, Atelier 35, Simeza gallery). He also exhibits abroad - Bulgaria, Switzerland, China, and, since 1990, he has settled in France where he participates in the Paris Autumn Show. He opens many personal exhibitions at: Sébastien Art Center in Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer and Carrousel du Louvre in 1996, France's Bastion in Porto Vecchio in 1999, Manege Royal in Saint Germain en Laye in 2000 and 2002, Fine Art Gallery in 2002. The surrealist universe of the painter seems to have the same origin as that of Stefan Câlția, Mircea Ciobanu or Ana Ruxandra Ilfoveanu - populated by timeless characters who borrow from the symbolism and mystery of the medieval carnival, stuck in precious attitudes, on neutral backgrounds that deconstruct them.

    Jules Perahim, Personnages surréalistes, lithograph ex. 17/40, lithograph Michel Casse, signed, dated (19)81

    ,
    Jules Perahim (born Iuliș Blumenfeld) was a Romanian artist of Jewish origin. After being associated with Surrealist circles at the beginning of the 1930s, he has contributed to the early development of what was to become Socialist Realism. In spite of the success he gets during the Communist regime, he grows frustrated by the lack of artistic liberty and, at some point during the 1960s, leaves the country to settle in Paris, where he continues to paint in surrealist style
