Francine Turk at Buckingham ID

I love Julia Edelmann of Buckingham ID's showroom. I want to move in. Park my slippers under that Swedish couch. I'm sure Julia would let me and now is the prefect time. Works by Chicago artist Francine Turk (you may have seen pieces on the set of the Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn movie "The Break-up") are clustered salon style across the walls. Beautiful. So Julia when you least expect it you'll find a strange woman (moi) draped across a chair drinking it all in. Chill the champagne. I'll be over so.

That chandelier in the sitting room area is so pretty! I just have to have it! May I know where to get it from, please? :)

i'm loving francine turk's nude drawings. there's such economy of lines, but they're all brimming with tension and emotion. they're gorgeous.

All of the artwork in our showroom is also for sale - the nudes, grave rubbings, and Matador series, all by Francine Turk, as well as the large-scale collages behind the conference table, which are by Kimberly Thurston. Both are local Chicago artists, whom we are so proud to include in our showroom! Please contact us with any questions!

Could you provide a price range for the smaller Francine Turk female nude pieces? I love them.

Thank you,
