We feature American paintings and works on paper from the 1920s to the 1950s with special interest in the Urban/Industrial Scene, Modernism, Atelier 17, Surrealism, and African American work.
More on the NY PRINT FAIR
This is a shot made at the Print Fair on October 26, 2017, shortly after I presented the IFPDA Book Award to Antony Griffiths for The Print Before Photography, his groundbreaking tome that has hit the town by storm. He probably doesn’t remember this, but I was also the presenter of his IFPDA Achievement Award in, I think, 2007.
Those are Keepers of the British Museum with me: From left to right is Stephen Coppel, Assistant Keeper Modern Prints and Drawings After 1880, ST, Antony Griffths, former Keeper of Prints and Drawings, and Hugo Chapman, Keeper of Prints and Drawings. Coppel is the curator of the hugely successful 2008 “American Scene” show that featured JOSEF ALBERS, PEGGY BACON, DOROTHY DEHNER, HUGO GELLERT, BLANCHE GRAMBS, STANLEY WILLIAM HAYTER, RIVA HELFOND, CHARLES KELLER, FRANZ KLINE, LOUIS LOZOWICK, CLAIRE MAHL MOORE, ANNE RYAN, HARRY STERNBERG, GRACE MARTIN TAYLOR, and of course HUGH MESIBOV. At the time Hugh, one of only very few living artists in the show, did get to visit to see his color carborundum, Europa, on view.
