Galerie St. Etienne
As has become traditional, the Galerie St. Etienne’s summer exhibition features RECENT ACQUISITIONS while also recapping highlights of the past season.
- Additional Information -
Expressionism, the Galerie St. Etienne’s primary field of expertise, is naturally a mainstay of the exhibition. With major works by the Austrian and German Expressionists increasingly hard to come by, the gallery is pleased to have acquired an excellent group of "new" drawings and watercolors by George Grosz, Gustav Klimt, Käthe Kollwitz, Alfred Kubin and Egon Schiele. The show also features a strong selection of prints by such artists as Gerd Arntz, Max Beckmann, Lovis Corinth, Conrad Felixmüller, Erich Heckel and Max Pechstein.
Self-taught art, the Galerie St. Etienne's other principal area of involvement, rounds out the summer presentation. The gallery has been fortunate in acquiring several important Grandma Moses paintings, as well as a selection of drawings by Henry Darger. Also featured are two recently discovered Russian "outsiders," Pavel Leonov and Vasilij Romanenkov, as well as the Austrian Karl Josef Rädler, whose work has received a great deal of attention at the last two Outsider Art Fairs.
RECENT ACQUISITIONS is documented by a comprehensive checklist, which is available free of charge upon request. The accompanying essay contains the Galerie St. Etienne’s annual "state of the market" report, which this year discusses the impact of September 11 and the ongoing travails of the auction houses.
