GALLERY SELECTIONS                      NOVEMBER 13, 2012 - JANUARY 12, 2013
EXTENDED​


The exhibition will consist of 33 works of art. American pictures include a monotype by Mark Tobey (1890-1976), watercolors by Charles Prendergast (1863 – 1948) and Theodore Robinson (1852 – 1896); a drawing by Henry Farrer (1843– 1903); and Construction with Red Bird and Blue Animals, by the universally esteemed self-taught artist Bill Traylor (1854-1949). 

Among the contemporary American works are a painting and a cloisonné pear jewel by Robert Kulicke (1924- 2007); a painting by Lennart Anderson (born 1928); and a 1962 watercolor and charcoal scene of Coney Island by David Levine (1926 – 2009). The remarkable oil on tin painting Liberty Figure by Albert York (1928-2009) will be on view for the first time in almost 15 years. 

British works include the rare 1838 Portrait of a Young Lady by Richard Dadd (1817 – 1886); watercolors by such masters of the medium as David Cox (1783 – 1859); William Callow (1812 – 1908); William James Muller (1812 – 1845); William Havell (1782 – 1857); John Varley (1778 – 1842); and William Roxby Beverley (1811- 1889). 

The British Bloomsbury School is represented by a drawing and watercolor by Dora Carrington (1893-1932), pottery by Quentin Bell (1910 – 1996); and Female Head, a notable 1913 oil on paper by Duncan Grant (1885-1978), which may be a portrait of Virginia Woolf.

Modern British art is represented by a gouache and a painting by Gwen John (1876 – 1939); and works on paper by the Camden Town artists Robert Bevan (1865-1925) and Walter Richard Sickert (1860 – 1942). Also included are the photographers Charles Jones (1866-1959) and Wilson A. Bentley (1865 – 1931); and a drawing by Joseph Stella (1877 – 1946).

Of particular note is the painting Untitled (Triptych) by Joan Mitchell (1925 – 1992), which comes from a private collection and has not been seen since 1975, the year in which it was executed.
