GALLERY SELECTIONS

which will begin on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 and continue through Saturday, January 12, 2013.

The exhibition will consist of 32 works of art. American pictures include a monotype by Mark Tobey (1890-1976), watercolors by Charles Prendergast (1863 – 1948) and Theodore Robinson (1852 – 1896); a photograph by Wilson A. Bentley (1865 -1931); drawings by Henry Farrer (1843– 1903) and Joseph Stella (1877 – 1946); and Construction with Red Bird and Blue Animals (see above), by the universally esteemed self-taught artist Bill Traylor (1854 -1949).

Among the contemporary American works are a painting and a cloisonné pear jewel by Robert M. Kulicke (1924 - 2008); a painting by Lennart Anderson (born 1928); and a 1962 watercolor and charcoal scene of Coney Island by David Levine (1926 – 2009). The remarkable oil on tin painting Liberty Figure (see above) by Albert York (1928 - 2009) will be on view for the first time in almost 15 years.

British works include the rare 1838 Portrait of a Young Lady by Richard Dadd (1817 – 1886); watercolors by such masters of the medium as David Cox (1783 – 1859); William Callow (1812 – 1908); William James Muller (1812 – 1845); William Havell (1782 – 1857); John Varley (1778 – 1842); and William Roxby Beverley (1811- 1889).

The British Bloomsbury School is represented by a drawing and watercolor by Dora Carrington (1893 -1932), pottery by Quentin Bell (1910 – 1996); and Female Head (see above), a notable 1913 oil on paper by Duncan Grant (1885 -1978), which may be a portrait of Virginia Woolf.

Modern British art is represented by a gouache and a painting by Gwen John (1876 – 1939); works on paper by the Camden Town artists Robert Bevan (1865 - 1925) and Walter Richard Sickert (1860 – 1942); and photographer Charles Jones (1866 - 1959).

Of particular note is the painting Untitled (Triptych) by Joan Mitchell (1925 – 1992), which comes from a private collection and has not been seen since 1975, the year in which it was executed.
