Acclaimed Event Returns to Manhattan’s Upper East Side from Saturday, January 26 through Saturday, February 2, 2019

Preview: Friday, January 25, 4-8 PM

Thirty of the world’s leading international art dealers have announced highlights to be exhibited at the highly-anticipated 2019 edition of Master Drawings New York (MDNY). The event takes place from Saturday, January 26th through Saturday, February 2nd on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Some of the most influential names in the business, some exhibiting for the very first time, are dedicated to drawings, paintings, watercolors, sculpture and oil sketches from the 14th to the 21st centuries.

Now in its 13th year, the annual week-long event presents an exciting showcase of concurrent pop-up gallery exhibitions by visiting dealers from London, Paris, Madrid, Amsterdam, Brussels and Vienna, and special presentations mounted in private gallery spaces by top New York specialists. These take place in galleries mostly along Madison Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

Last year, MDNY expanded its reach to feature paintings and sculpture and offered collectors, curators and art lovers a spectacular selection of works presented by a broader range of specialist dealers. This has been even further strengthened in quality with some top names joining for the first time. They are Ambrose Naumann Fine Art (New York), Galerie Kugel (Paris), Jack Kilgore (New York), Leon Tovar (New York), Robert Simon (New York), Mark Brady (New York), Stuart Lochhead (London), Hazlitt (New York/London), Thomas Deprez Fine Art (Belgium), Pavel Zoubok (New York), Jeroen Jurjens (Amsterdam), Benjamin Proust (London).
