HARVEY SHIPLEY MILLER is the sole trustee of the defaulting JUDITH ROTHSCHILD FOUNDATION.
OMG HARVEY !! – what’d ya do with all the dough ??!! – our resident big mouth – who requested NOT to be outed as the source of the following particular bit of very true local color – would like to say he isn’t surprised by funny biz at the JUDITH ROTHSCHILD FOUNDATION – that HARVEY SHIPLEY MILLER was sighted, even last year, “so drunk he was crawling on all fours” !! down some well-lit Chelsea Street. He also had a very young good looking boyfriend – with a brand new gallery – several years back. everyone always asked: and the gallery is funded by who ?
almost a fable.
too bad, think he spent a lot of that dough on new art, and yes thank god. cause the window he was supposed to service – really didn’t amount to much – truth be told. he certainly must have supported a big segment of the art scene – with his JUDITH ROTHSCHILD FOUNDATION funded contemporary drawing collection – and I bet the contemporary dealers are more sad than the unrecognized dead artists to see – him bottom out. or is that flame out. too bad. he was a cool enough guy to buy a couple of large ALFREDO MARTINEZ drawings, and even some ANDREW GUENTHER works on paper, too. that was when I used to cover ALFREDO, (and ANDREW GUENTHER, and a quite few others) – for artnet (2002-2004). Harvey told me he was a big fan of my down & dirty, sometimes even funny – ALFREDO MARTINEZ sound bites.
