Dusty Modern will be opening in San Francisco in August 2010. It will feature fine art, prints, furniture, and other artifacts from the 1940's through the 1970's, with an emphasis on the sweet spot in between. The opening show will feature a few late-career prints by New York School abstract expressionists, including Marca-Relli, Tworkov, and Lassaw. We'll also have many other prints and unique works on hand, as well as furniture from Florence Knoll, Paul McCobb, Muriel Coleman, and others. Here are two of the prints we'll feature in our opener.
A Conrad Marca-Relli print from 1977, produced in an edition of 75. Marca-Relli is a key New York School collage artist, who produced a series of prints for Poligrafa in the late Seventies. We have a few from this series, none of which I've seen for sale in the U.S.
Ibram Lassaw was primarily a sculptor, but made a lovely set of synapse-like prints in the early Seventies. This print is from 1970, in an edition of 100. Early in the Fifties, he was a member of "The Club," which included artists like Willem De Kooning, Franz Kline, and Ad Reinhardt.
Updates soon on the start date and additional inventory.
