4Kaleidoscopes to you has the most knowledgeable, resourceful and helpful staff I have found anywhere! Recently, I was searching for Henry Bergeson's Wind Dancer, not only did they have one in stock Karl answered any questions I had and in fact had many more details about Mr. Bergeson's works that I did not know. Karl shared this info in a manner that was not the least bit condescending. While searching for this particular artwork I ran across another website offering this piece. The person I spoke with was a snobby know it all who had the manner of a used car salesperson... I immediately called Karl and placed my order...Double thumbs up to Karl and the team!!! Do not place an order elsewhere until you've talked to these folks.
