New Acquisitions – Fall 2015

Each Fall season brings new and exciting inventory into our Gallery.  This Fall is no exception. From rare drawings by the master of Social Surrealism, Irving Norman, to sensitive, personal sculptures by highly acclaimed and Iceland-born sculptor Nina Saemundsson, to an ever so uncommon portrait by Edward Terada, there is something for art enthusiasts of every stripe. Frede Vidar's recreation of pre-War France entitled "Honfleur", is a rare find indeed.

Our new acquisitions rotate through the Gallery's ongoing exhibition California Modernism 1910 – 1950, in which we feature some of the best in California and American Modernism. We hope you will enjoy our current selections.

New Acquisitions – Spring and Summer 2015

It is with great pleasure that we present our new acquisitions for Spring 2015. This group of paintings represents in a significant way the diversity of California and American Modernism. 

For the first time we are exhibiting a work by Matthew Barnes, the idiosyncratic, San Francisco-based modernist whose naive style is distinctive and mysterious. Francis de Erdely depicted a sobering picture of a man at the end of his tether in his circa 1950 Untitled. We are pleased to present a 1934 still life by Stanley Murray Edwards featuring a Roman bust surrounded by scrumptious fruit. The 1931 portrait of a woman by Robert Gilbert is at once provocative and engaging. And Aage Christian “Jack” Wiboltt created a stunning image with his 1948 Abstract.

American modernists Stanley Bielecky and Paul Leland Thompson created highly original fertile valley and urban landscapes, respectively. We are especially gratified to be exhibiting a scene painting by Jack Levitz depicting a young boy, perhaps a Boy Scout, being counseled, or perhaps scolded, by a woman and a police officer while a mysterious, half hidden woman peers at them from behind a nearby wall.

Finally, we present a work of art by an artist who achieved great fame and admiration during his career: LeRoy Neiman. In Racehorses at Hollywood Park Neiman depicts in his quintessential impressionistic style a group of horses approaching the gate at Hollywood Park racetrack. It is a fun, lively painting.

We hope you enjoy our new acquisitions.

Holiday Acquisitions – 2015

We are pleased to present three highly diverse artworks for your consideration this holiday season.

First, Mac Harshberger’s art was quintessentially Art Deco, and Brenny as Native American is a great example of that 1930s aesthetic. Second, being almost muralesque in proportion, Arthur P. Koch’s Perseus and Andromeda tells the haunting Greek myth of Perseus who saves Andromeda from the sea monster in order to claim Andromeda in marriage. And finally, the third artwork we present is Carl Thorp’s Gold Mine, Mother Lode - featuring high key colors in the context of a Modernist landscape.
