About

Established in 1983 and now celebrating 20 years in Atlanta, the gallery specializes in contemporary paintings, contemporary and historical works on paper, and selected sculpture and photography by American and international artists, from emerging to highly established.

We work with museums, private and corporate collectors, casual buyers, interior designers, and art consultants.

The gallery has exhibited the work from the estates of significant 20th-century artists, including British draughtsman Randolph Schwabe (1885-1948), Polish-born modernist Marek Zulawski (1908-1985), and beloved Scottish painter John Boyd (1940-2001). Other exhibitions have been devoted to the work of the great Sculptor-Printmaker Henry Moore (1898-1986), paintings by the  brilliant but tragic British artist Cynthia Pell (1933-1977), etchings by Lucien Freud, Paula Rego, and Frank Auerbach, and drawings and watercolors by 19th-century masters George Richmond (1808-1896) and Alabama-born Orientalist Frederick Arthur Bridgman (1847-1928).
