Dellasposa Fine Art is pleased to announce the Modern Masters in Print, an exhibition presenting works by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Alberto Giacometti, Sonia Delauney, Joan Miró, Fernand Léger, Salvador Dalí, Jean Cocteau, and Victor Vasarely.
This exhibition, which will take place at 35-37 Church St., explores the alliance between artists of the French School who used the full artistic potential of the print medium.
In the 20th. century, Paris represented a mecca for modern artists and master printmakers. Some of the most remarkable ateliers flourished in the city, from Lacourière to Mourlot and Vollard; a collaboration without whom likes of Picasso and Miró would not have been able to demonstrate their extensive revolutionary experimentation. The result was a bounty of artistic riches that have forever changed modern art.
Pablo Picasso's enthusiasm for printmaking developed shortly after he moved to Paris in 1900. Considered the most pivotal, innovating artist of the 20th century, displaying the evolutionary process of his creative genius both artistically and technically. He challenged all of his artistic mediums to attain the optimum results for his art.
Printmaking was a true passion for Picasso, and he was a major innovator in this medium. He altered his methods to achieve singular expressive qualities in his editions. It is not only that Picasso mastered the difficulty of new techniques with [playful ease]; he soon went on to obtain results that had hitherto been deemed impossible.
This exhibition represents the breadth of the Modern Masters considerable [output] in etchings, lithography, linocuts; allowing us to examine the process and meaning behind it. With works spanning more than four decades.
Throughout their lives, these artists demonstrated an extraordinary proclivity toward experimentation, while printmaking - through the power of dissemination - allowed the artists the capacity to our relationship to art in the modern era.
Dellasposa Fine Art is privileged to present a collection of editions and unique works on paper to our collectors in this exhibition. This is an extraordinary opportunity to acquire original prints that still hold the creative enchanting and originality of the artist's own hand.
Concurrently, the gallery presents Visions from the Shoreline, an exhibition devoted to the new work by contemporary art photographer Alexander James.
