LeRoy Neiman In the Spotlight
Our annual LeRoy Neiman exhibition will feature exclusive works on paper from the LeRoy Neiman Foundation. There is a wide range of subjects and most of the pieces have never previously been displayed in public. We will also feature superb paintings acquired over the past year from around the world. This show follows a successful exhibition earlier this year of Neiman’s work featured in: Muhammad Ali, LeRoy Neiman, and the Art of Boxing at the New York Historical Society.
Exploring the Back Roads
This new exhibition features works painted by the artist as he traveled the highways and byways of the central California Delta region last year.

Process and Materiality as Tableau-Vivant
A new collection of work from Pierre Marie Brisson including paintings recently shown at his one-man exhibitions at the Maison des Princes in Pérouges and the Collegiale St Pierre le Puellier Museum in Orléans.
THIS EXHIBITION RUNS NOVEMBER 10 - DECEMBER 31
Puig relies upon intuition to coax meaning from his raw materials. In this newest collection of paintings and works on paper, his art hovers between themes of the ancient past and the immediate present, earth and cosmos, contour and mass, figure and fragment, myth and matter.
Puig’s figures seem to wrestle with the question that has occupied man since the beginning of time, “What does it mean to be human?”
THIS EXHIBITION RUNS THE MONTH OF OCTOBER
In his forward for the 2006 book, Gottfried Salzmann, Klaus Schroder, the curator of the Albertina, stated:
"For the Albertina, the collection of Salzmann watercolors owned by the museum is one of our most important treasures. Following the line from Albrecht Dürer, Rudolf Van Alt and the later Paul Klee, Salzmann establishes himself as a rightful heir and successor."
This newest collection builds on Salzmann’s work from the past and is highlighted with extraordinary aerial views of New York City.
A group of 19th-century European paintings, focusing on the beautiful Barbizon landscapes of the mid-century French painters, but also including seascapes, portraits and still lifes from the period.

THIS EXHIBITION RUNS THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER.
“If one were to establish a hierarchy within the subjects of art, I would place the human figure first and, in particular, the nude. I do not know why when I paint a nude it seems to me I touch something more intimate that connects me to all humanity.”
Boncompain’s powerful new work graphically reflects these sentiments.
