Nearly 400 prints by leading modern and contemporary artists from the collection of the late David K. Anderson, son of influential New York gallerist Martha Jackson, will be sold in a benefit sale in May.

Art dealer Dean Brownrout is offering the original prints from the David Anderson Charitable Trust Collection at a sale that opens to the public on May 5 in the Center for the Arts on University at Buffalo’s North Campus.

Brownrout says, “These are museum-quality works, with an impeccable provenance.”

Anderson, who died at 74 in 2009, was a pioneering collector in the field of prints and followed the family tradition as a gallery owner. His mother was known for championing abstract expressionism in the U.S. and internationally in the 1950s.

Artists represented in the sale include Karel Appel, Norman Bluhm, James Brooks, Christo, Jim Dine, Claire Falkenstein, Sam Francis, Michael Goldberg, David Hayes, John Hultberg, Paul Jenkins, Lester Johnson, Jules Olitski, Gio Pomodoro, Clayton Pond, Ludwig Sander, George Segal, Julian Stanczak, Antoni Tapies, Walasse Ting and Mark Tobey, among many others.

The sale will benefit 13 non-profits and institutions in the Buffalo, New York, area.
