Areas of Focus
The world of art is vast and broad, and we seek to narrow your search to pieces that are sure to fit well into your collection. Whether you have a particular artist or style in mind, or simply want to discover what you like, we will work closely with you to ensure your vision is realized.
Post-War & Contemporary
Typically created between 1945 and 1970, Post-War American art ranges from Abstract Expressionism, Neo-Dada, Pop Art, and more. Contemporary art follows the Post-War time period and includes 21st century works. These pieces reflect a growing global influence, cultural cross-pollination, and an increasingly technological world. Well-known artists from these eras include Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, and Andy Warhol.
Impressionist & Modern
Impressionism originated in France in the 1860s as a sort of rebellion against the academic tradition of art. Shortly after, the Modern art movement, born as a result of the Industrial Revolution, reflected the rapidly-arising cultural changes brought on by new technologies and schools of thought that took art away from just commissioned pieces by wealthy institutions to a medium of self-expression by artists around the world. Standout members of these movements include Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cezanne, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Juan Gris, and Pablo Picasso.
Featured in landmark shows such as “Soul of a Nation” and “Harlem Perspectives II,” Black Art in America is experiencing a tipping point in popularity, value, and demand. Powerful images and retrospective thematic material add nuance and presence to any collection. In-demand artists include Kerry James Marshall, Mickalene Thomas, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Wadsworth Jarrell, William T. Williams, Barkley L. Hendricks, Bettye Saar, and Elizabeth Catlett, among others.
Sculpted works of art add depth and variation to any collection. With a surprising range in size and materials, sculptures range from the iconic (think of the ancient Greek Venus de Milo) to the surreal (the Lobster Telephone by Salvador Dalí comes to mind). Other popular sculptors include Roy Lichtenstein, David Smith, Henry Moore, Constantin Brancusi, Jacque Lipschitz, Henri Matisse, Jeff Koons, Wilhelm Lemhbruck, Pablo Picasso, and Ossip Zadkine.
The democratization of the camera unleashed a whole new medium for artists to document and share their dreams, their visions, their subjects, and their reality. Photographs permanently capture moments in time–no matter how fleeting. Popular photographic artists include Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Gerard Rancinan, among others.
