Kraushaar Galleries

Kraushaar Galleries 20th Century And Selected Contemporary American Art Kraushaar Galleries was founded in 1885 by Charles W. Kraushaar who had been with the Schaus Gallery, a respected European art gallery of the early 1880s.
(3)

In business for himself at the Gallery's first location on Broadway at 33rd street, Charles took summer trips to Europe to bring back Dutch and French Barbizon paintings, as well as works by Courbet, Corot, Whistler and Fantin-Latour. Soon after its opening, Charles' younger brother John joined the business and added modern French painters: Soutine, Matisse, Roualt, Modigliani, Redon, an occasional Picasso and others of the late 19th and early 20th century. John Kraushaar became increasingly interested in the Americans; he was most enthusiastic about the work of Robert Henri and his circle, and in particular the group known as "The Eight," Henri, John Sloan, William Glackens, Everett Shinn, George Luks, Maurice Prendergast, Ernest Lawson and Arthur B. Davies. One of the first to be represented at Kraushaar Galleries was Luks, whom John had met as a young man on the baseball diamonds of Long Island, followed by Sloan and Glackens. Later came Maurice Prendergast, Guy Pène du Bois and occasional showings of Shinn, Lawson, and the modernists Charles Demuth, Marsden Hartley and Gaston Lachaise. Kraushaar Galleries, like Macbeth Galleries and later Charles Daniel, provided support and encouragement for these American artists. By continuously presenting exhibitions of these relative unknowns, they are cited for helping to encourage public acceptance of the developments in American art. Sloan, for example, was slow to achieve commercial success. Notwithstanding, John Kraushaar continued to exhibit his work for many decades. Sloan himself acknowledged the importance of the Gallery, and particularly John Kraushaar whom he said "was the most honest dealer in the country." Kraushaar Galleries continues to represent his estate. John Kraushaar continued the business upon his brother's death in 1917 and, in 1919, moved the Gallery from 260 Fifth Avenue, where it had been located for nineteen years, to 54th and Fifth. It was at this time that his daughter, Antoinette, joined the Gallery as a stenographer. Miss Kraushaar assumed management of the Gallery in 1946. She continued to show the works of the Eight as well as Jerome Myers, Gifford Beal, Louis Bouché, Henry Schnakenberg, Marguerite Zorach and John Koch and added newer American painters, among them John Hartell, John Heliker, William Kienbusch, Joe Lasker, James Lechay, Elsie Manville and Karl Schrag. Although the Gallery exhibited figurative painting, much of the contemporary work was abstract, including that of Leon Goldin, Carl Morris, and Linda Sokolowski. The during the last twenty years additions to the stable included Tabitha Vevers, Catherine Drabkin, Henry Finkelstein, Kathryn Wall, Lee Walton and the Estates of Dorothy Dehner and of Esphyr Slobodkina. Kraushaar Galleries at 126, currently at 74 East 79th Street, is now functioning as a private gallery. We continue to represent the work of Catherine Drabkin and Lee Walton while focusing and maintaining our expertise in the art of the first half through the middle of the twentieth century. The president is Carole M. Pesner, and the director is Katherine Degn.

The University of Richmond Museums opens CROOKED DATA (Mis)Information in Contemporary Art on February 9 through May 5, 2017, in the Joel and Lila Harnett Museum of Art. The exhibition features art by twenty-one contemporary artists and studios, including the work of Lee Walton, who work with data in nontraditional ways. Some artists incorporate data from known sources, using it as an aesthetic device divorced from its originally intended interpretive function. Others gather and manifest data that might normally be considered not worthy of collecting. And some of the works explore alternatives to standard data visualization forms and practices.

β€œWe see data and data visualization everywhere β€” graphs in the news about voting statistics, interactive maps on our phones, animated weather radars and charts, standardized testing scores, etc.,” says the exhibition curator N. Elizabeth Schlatter, Deputy Director and Curator of Exhibitions, University Museums. β€œThe artists in this exhibition use data and data visualization as their subject and their process, creatively questioning our assumptions about how we decide what information is important and how we communicate and interpret information visually.”

John Sloan is one of the many artists to capture the hauntingly beautiful landscape of Dogtown Common on Cape Ann, Massachusetts with his 1916 painting 'Dogtown Valley in the Sun.' Abandoned by its inhabitants in the early 1800s, the once village of Dogtown now remains a forsaken landscape, as described by Marsden Hartley to be a cross between Easter Island and Stonehenge - 'a sense of eeriness pervades all the place... giving the feeling that an ancient race might turn up at any moment and renew an ageless rite there.'

Check it out! "Innovation and Abstraction: Women Artists and Atelier 17," the upcoming exhibition of abstract graphics and works in other media by eight artists at the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center will be on view from August 4 through October 29, 2016. Organized by guest curator Christina Weyl, PhD, co-founder and co-president of the Association of Print Scholars, the exhibition highlights the innovative techniques developed at Atelier 17, an experimental printmaking studio that operated in New York City from 1940-1955. Nearly 200 artists made prints there, almost half of them women. The exhibition focuses on a core group--Louise Bourgeois, Minna Citron, Worden Day, Dorothy Dehner, Sue Fuller, Alice Trumbull Mason, Louise Nevelson and Anne Ryan--who bent traditional printmaking rules and explored uncharted aesthetic terrain in various intaglio and relief printing techniques.

Closed for the season, reopening May 3, 2018. Winter office hours: Mon - Fri 10 - 5

Printed in 1941, #johnsloan wrote about his etching 'Sunbathers on the Roof' in a pamphlet for the College Society of Print Collectors, 'In the spring as rays grow warmer, the tenement roofs in New York begin to come to life. More washes are hung out... And on Saturdays and Sundays girls and men in bathing togs stretch themselves on newspapers, blankets or sheets in the sun, turning over at intervals like hotcakes. I think many of them are acquiring a coat of tan in preparation for coming trips to Coney Island. The roof life of the Metropolis is so interesting to me...' How will you be spending this beautiful #memorialdayweekend in #newyorkcity?
