The Unbroken Line: Old and New Masters
May 11 – June 8, 2018
Hours: Monday – Friday, 11:00am – 5:00pm


Robert Simon Fine Art and Grand Central Atelier present an exhibition of contemporary paintings and drawings alongside old masters works, revealing the unbroken line of fine art into the 21st Century.

Art historian and art dealer Robert Simon will curate a selection of Old Master paintings and drawings paired with new works by New York-based painters, Jacob Collins, Colleen Barry, Anthony Baus, Will St. John, Edward Minoff and Justin Wood, who are all principle instructors at Grand Central Atelier, one of the world’s premier ateliers training artists in the classical tradition of drawing, painting and sculpture. Included are select works by recent graduates Rachel Li, Savannah Tate Cuff and Dale Zinkowski.

These 21st Century atelier artists are carefully attuned to the idea that in order to evince this language with roots in the ancient world, one must first be a humble observer of nature and bear witness to its nuance and sensitivity. When fully realized through years of serious commitment to study, this language possesses great power to communicate the human condition with limitless beauty and endless variation.

MFA Boston's "Made in the Americas"

We were pleased to see that one of our alumni is included in the exhibition, an eighteenth-century Peruvian painting in an extraordinary shell encrusted frame, acquired from us by the Hispanic Society of America.  It appears in the center of this view of one corner of the exhibition.

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, has opened a superb exhibition “Made in the Americas; The New World Discovers Asia.”  It is a brilliant exploration of the international trade and influence of Asian works of art in the Colonial periods in  both North and South America – a story that could only be told through the decorative arts.

We were pleased to see that one of our alumni is included in the exhibition, an eighteenth-century Peruvian painting in an extraordinary shell encrusted frame, acquired from us by the Hispanic Society of America.  It appears in the center of this view of one corner of the exhibition.

The exhibition is on view until February 15, 2016.

“Made in the Americas” will then travel to Winterthur, where it can be seen from March 26, 2016 until January 8,  2017.

LACMA

Cabrera Casta pro final.jpg

We are pleased to announce the sale of a highly important painting by the Mexican master Miguel Cabrera to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. 

This lost work was one of two canvasses missing from Cabrera’s celebrated series of sixteen casta paintings.  It is undoubtedly the best preserved of the set and the only example still retaining its original scroll format. We are proud to have established its identity and honored to have represented the painting’s owner in securing its acquisition by the museum – a discovery described by the Los Angeles Times as “a major event in the art world.”

On View at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art
from April 10th, 2015
 

Our thanks and congratulations to LACMA, to curator Ilona Katzew, and to Christina Jones Janssen.
