Beryllium copper, brass, and silver

34 1/2 x 8 x 8 in.

Traditional bronzes from the late 19th-early 20th Century by Frederick MacMonnies, Bessie Potter Vonnoh, Harriet Whitney Frishmuth, Janet Scudder, Anna Hyatt Huntington, and Augustus Saint-Gaudens appear periodically at the gallery.  Modernist sculptures and drawings by Elie Nadelman, Robert Laurent, Gaston Lachaise, and William Zorach are also offered alongside Abstract sculptures by Harry Bertoia, Alexander Calder, and Dorothy Dehner and constructions by Burgoyne Diller, Charles Biederman, and Irene Rice Pereira.


From time to time, the gallery offers unique objects, such as painted relief pieces by Max Kuehne, including folding screens and tables as well as a fire screen (acquired by the Art Institute of Chicago) and tray owned by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney.  Likewise, reliefs, frames, and rare objects, such as mirrors, by Charles Prendergast, may also be available.


Since the gallery’s exhibition, An Exotic Journey:  The Furniture & Paintings of Lockwood De Forest in 2015, fine and decorative arts by the artist continue to be offered.  These include souvenirs of his travels in the form of oil vignettes of the Middle East, India, the Adirondacks, California, and the Grand Canyon. Chairs, a monumental mantel, a fire back screen, and other furniture pieces are also available. A carved teakwood side chair designed by the artist and crafted in India, circa 1885, was acquired by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
