New York school or everyone possibly connected

April 22nd, 2009 · No Comments

For those of us that cherish post-war abstract expressionism, Artnet is at present putting up an interesting online sale called Abstract paintings New York school 1940-1970, featuring 60 original works by some 50 artists, more or less associated with the school, some pre-eminent. This is the online art market at its best: highlighting a niche of the market for the benefit and enjoyment of the collector. Beyond the sheer pleasure of seeing these works together, the presentations are clear-cut, photographs good and reports on provenance and condition impeccable. Even when considering it as a commercially coloured non-event, it’s a virtual ‘group’ exhibition not to miss.

Some glimpses:

Norman Bluhm, although present in the offering of numerous galleries at the moment, possessing a Bluhm is always a thrill and why not this one. Detail (24×19.75 in):
