bringing to light: theodore wendel (1857-1932)

Vose Galleries is pleased to announce the major exhibition Bringing to Light: Theodore Wendel. As part of first wave of Americans to visit Giverny in the summer of 1887, joining John Leslie Breck, Willard Metcalf and Theodore Robinson, Wendel became one of the earliest American painters to apply impressionist principles to his plein air interpretations of the countryside. We are excited by the opportunity bolster Wendel’s renown with this show. Bringing to Light: Theodore Wendel includes nearly thirty landscape and figural paintings, the majority of which have never been off ered for sale before. It is the first exhibition in decades in which the merit, quality, and value of Wendel’s Impressionism can be observed and appreciated. Bringing to Light: Theodore Wendel will be viewable online and in the gallery October 19th…

In today’s art market, art fairs are typically synonymous with contemporary art. While art fairs exist all across the country, most collectors think of Art Basel in December when the idea of an art fair comes to mind. Clean white walls with mainly abstract or installation art, minimally hung, as the focus. And international buyers perusing the halls, looking for the next big name to add to their collection. But imagine this: an art fair taking place at an elegant and sophisticated location in the Lower East Side. The art is on several floors, with galleries and dealers from across the country inhabiting the space. And instead of contemporary art, what you’ll find is classic work from the likes of John Singer Sargent, Robert Henri, Georgia O’Keeffe, Norman Rockwell, Thomas Wilmer…

beauty into art

Best known for his interiors and landscapes featuring beautiful women in artful poses and subtly related color harmonies, Thomas Wilmer Dewing (1851–1938) lived and worked at the forefront of developments in modern American art. His paintings, which navigate a course between the bravura of John Singer Sargent and the attenuated aestheticism of James McNeill Whistler, convey a sensuous beauty that remains uniquely his and that represents an exceptional phase in American painting. Featuring a comprehensive biography and engaging, narrative commentaries, this elegant, 2-volume catalogue raisonné is an essential and much-needed reference. Included here are more than 550 works of art as well as previously unpublished photographs from the artist’s own albums; each work is accompanied by a full provenance, exhibition histories, and literature—both published and archival. Susan A. Hobbs is…
