Acquavella Galleries  Impressionist, Modern & Contemporary Masters

"Abstraction allows man to see with his mind what he cannot physically see with his eyes... Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an explosion into unknown areas." - Arshile Gorky -
-
#MuseumMonday: One of Arshile Gorky's last works, "Dark Green Painting" from 1948, was sold by the gallery and today belongs to the @philamuseum. In July of 1948, after a series of tragic events including a fire in his studio and a terrible car accident, Gorky took his own life; he was only forty-four years old.

Happy Birthday to Lucian Freud, who was born on this day in 1922!
-
This photo of Bill Acquavella and Lucian Freud was taken by the artist’s longtime assistant @davidelidawson in 2011.
-
Lucian Freud’s self-portraits will be the subject of a major exhibition at the Royal Academy in London in 2019, which will be traveling to Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts in 2020. Following that exhibition, Freud’s drawings will be featured in a show at the National Portrait Gallery in 2021. -

#MuseumMonday: This beautiful watercolor by #PaulGauguin is currently on view in the @themorganlibrary's show of works on paper from the Thaw Collection. The watercolor was sold by Acquavella Galleries to Eugene and Clare Thaw, who in turn gifted the drawing to the Morgan Library. -
Shortly before first setting sail for Tahiti, Paul Gauguin discussed his reasons for leaving Europe in an interview for "L’echo de Paris" on February 23, 1891: "I'm leaving so that I can be at peace and can rid myself of civilization's influence. I want to create only simple art. To do that, I need to immerse myself in virgin nature, see only savages, live their life, with no other care than to portray, as would a child, the concepts in my brain using only primitive artistic materials, the only kind that are good and true." -
Inspired by his new surroundings, Gauguin embarked upon a period of intensive work. In his brilliant paintings, the Tahitian landscape became a sensual paradise of rich color and form into which Gauguin’s elegant figures were seamlessly integrated. With these “Tahitian Eves” - women unashamed of their naked bodies - Gauguin constructed an image of an ideal, Edenic world of man and nature living in harmony, and what he believed to be a purer, more natural state of being. Describing his Tahitian paintings, Gauguin said that he had been “eager to suggest a luxurious and untamed nature, a tropical sun that sets aglow everything around it ... the equivalent of the grandeur, depth, and mystery of Tahiti must be expressed in one square meter of canvas.”

Happy Birthday to James Rosenquist, who would have been 84 today! Here is a photo of Jim in front of his iconic early Pop painting, "President Elect" (1960-61), which juxtaposes an image of the smiling presidential candidate, John F. Kennedy, with typical postwar advertising images including an oversized slice of cake and a yellow Chevrolet. Rosenquist's fractured combinations of images mined from magazines and the mass media convey the postwar culture of consumerism – and the subliminal promises of advertising – while reflecting the social, political and cultural climate of his time.

Yesterday was National Cake Day! 🍰 -

Speaking about his desserts, the subjects for which he is best known, Thiebaud explained: "My subject matter was a genuine sort of experience that came out of my life, particularly the American world in which I was privileged to be . . . . I would really think of the bakery counters, of the way the counter was lit, where the pies were placed, but I wanted just a piece of the experience. From when I worked in restaurants . . . [it was] always poetic to me."

The exhibition includes many of the artist’s most important works from all phases of his career, presented in the context of contemporary social and political events. The show reunites all three installations Rosenquist created for the Castelli Gallery for the first time, including his iconic anti-war manifesto, “F-111” from 1964-65, on loan from @themuseumofmodernart.💥

“In my opinion, long and intense study of the human figure is the necessary foundation for a sculptor.” -
-
“There are three fundamental poses of the human figure. One is standing, the other is seated, and the third is lying down … of the three poses, the reclining figure gives the most freedom, compositionally and spatially.” – Henry Moore
-
-
On view in our sculpture exhibition, “Reclining Figure No. 2” is the largest in a series of six works of reclining figures that Moore created between 1952 and 1954. -
