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.
