Exhibition

Asian Contemporary Art

Asian Art has a broad history that dates beyond the Bronze Age.  Throughout time many social and political influences have made an impact on what we see in Contemporary Asian Art.  What we know as Asian Modern Art emerged during the 1860s through the mid 20th century, evolving into the contemporary art practices seen today.  This movement exhibits the traditional practices of Asian Art while reacting to the changing times giving each artist the ability to express their personal beliefs.

Jean Dufy

La Société Parisienne

Our current exhibition, Jean Dufy: La Société Parisienne continues the tradition of over sixty years of representation – since the 1950s – beginning when Wally Findlay and Jean Dufy forged a lasting friendship that evolved into Dufy ‘s emergence as one of the premier artists of the century – we have been proud to celebrate his paintings, watercolors, gouaches and drawings worldwide. We were one of the first to bring Dufy’s magical artistic vision to an American audience, and were privileged to continue after his death, working closely with his sister, Germaine Dufy, appointed by the French Government as a legal authenticator of her brother’s work because of her extensive knowledge of his style, his spirit and his subject matter.

The Painted Garden

The act of painting is a creative process of relating and expressing the world and the many facets through one’s own internal perception, it induces an inquiry and searches for meaning, appreciation, and affirmation. It is a journey that is ever evolving as one proceeds through life, so consequently, values, priorities, and perceptions change along the way.

All art, by its nature, is an act of sharing; a dialogue to be had with each person that experiences, engages and responds to the created form that is presented.

Much of the above sentiments apply to gardening. The role of a garden can serve as a vital function in our lives, providing an opportunity to relate directly with the creative force of nature, and so becoming co-creators.

This engagement connects us with our forebears, continuing the act of linking our physical and spiritual needs to the environment about us. In working in spatial terms with color, fragrance, shape and texture through our individual personality, we can discover our potential in creating an ambiance, and in so doing, provide enjoyment, peace, fulfillment, inspiration and a place for reflection as well as sharing.

Primarily working as an Impressionist painter which involves painting and referencing subject matter in the ‘en plein air’ mode; the physicality of a location along with the accompanying sounds, activities, the sense of time and season that make up the ambiance impinge on composition and painting language.

This is especially appropriate when painting gardens and parkland, where all these factors are paramount in determining an artistic response.

Gardens as a subject can be viewed as being symbolic of society’s relationship with its surroundings and with itself. Moreover, the creation of gardens are part of the manifested human expressions of self-realization, identity and joy in living and are the building blocks of an ascending civilization or society.  Many means of achieving this aim have been achieved by incorporating elements of statuary, architecture, water features and landscaping in various combinations and degrees.

At the outset of painting gardens what initially impressed me, and continues to be the case, is the determination, perseverance and unique personal engagement and creative force that is a definition and mannerism of character, whether by an individual or group that in many cases becomes their life’s passion and identity.

The first ‘Painted Garden’ exhibition was held in 1994 at the Museum of Garden History, located in Lambeth, London. The collection of works portrayed the garden at Barnsley House of the Plants-woman, Rosemary Verey. She was renowned for her color schemes, border planting and her famous Laburnum Walk. Rosemary Verey was inspirational in the revival of the Potager, seen not merely for growing vegetables, but also as an art form using colors, textures and mixture of underplanting. She also helped His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales redesign the kitchen garden at Highgrove in Gloucestershire. The introduction of a Potager into English gardens became the height of fashion.

The curated collection of paintings that form this latest ‘Painted Garden’ exhibition is varied in terms of location and style. Having historical importance from a horticultural perspective and are still relevant today.

It is most fitting to celebrate ‘The Painted Garden – The Art of Gardening’, with ‘The Garden Club of America’- founded in 1913 – ‘The Garden Club Palm Beach’ {established in 1928, and joined the Garden Club of America in 1931}, through this benefit exhibition event.

Isabelle de Ganay

Printemps Exhibition

Isabelle de Ganay was born in Rouen in 1960. There she discovered the magic of the Normandy landscape that inspired the great names in Impressionism – Monet, Renoir and Sisley.

Art and nature very quickly occupied a predominant place in the life of young Isabelle, and when she was only 15 years old she was accepted to the famous Beaux-Arts in Rouen.

In 1976, Isabelle met Albert Malet, the last Impressionist painter of the School of Rouen. Malet had been a student of Robert Antoine Pinchon and he would become Isabelle’s mentor for the next ten years. Malet, who had always been aware of her gift as an artist, designated Isabelle as his successor. Upon his death in 1986, Isabelle assumed his position as Maïtre de l’École de Rouen.


Contemporary Group Exhibition

New York

Findlay Galleries New York is pleased to present a Contemporary Group Exhibition featuring Priscilla Heine, Henrik Simonsen, and Noah Landfield.

Each artist has captured the environment and added exuberant pops of color and fluid expression, all while staying true to their own unique style and character of painting.  Masters of juxtaposition and color they leave us with the emotions of the of the urban or natural space they represent.

Priscilla Heine has been aware of the essential need for drawing and painting since she was very young.  Heine draws on her many experiences to provide the light and context of her paintings giving her a range of formal abstraction and intimate references.

Henrik Simonsen’s work represents a subtle evolution of form that meets an ever-developing function as a guide to the experiences along a path of existence.  Echoing the nature of his subject matter, his painting represents growth and life.

Noah Landfield, the son of painter Ronnie Landfield, is well versed in the voice of the city and metropolitan life.  This is evident in his canvases filled with impressionistic overlays of architecture and explosions of dramatic color.  We are left with the tension between the man-made setting and forces of nature.


Gilles Gorriti

Recent Works

Findlay Galleries in NewYork is delighted to present French Modernist painter Gilles Gorriti’s recent works. Son of renowned artist Paul Aizpiri and grandson of Ignacio Gorriti de Aizpiri, Gilles Gorriti was born in Paris in 1939. A disciple of the French Modernist movement, Gorriti believed that to establish a certain mood and an emotional response in painting, the use of color was more important than subject alone. As a true colorist, Gorriti was a virtuoso in using the full range of his palette. He created both subtle, unobtrusive fragments of delicate tones alongside vibrantly orchestrated blocks of color.


Frank Lobdell

Beyond Words

Findlay Galleries is proud to introduce the exclusive representation of the estate of the Bay Area’s renowned abstract expressionist, Frank Lobdell. Frank Lobdell: Beyond Words is a comprehensive exhibition and overview of Frank Lobdell’s paintings, drawings, prints and sketchbooks from his long career as an artist and teacher from the San Francisco Bay area. A seminal figure in the development of the West Coast abstract expressionist painting movement, Lobdell was a pioneer of the American Abstract movement of the 1950s.


Le Pho

Exhibition

The sensitive, subtle, beautiful paintings by Vietnamese artist, Le Pho are a fascinating combination of Oriental artistry with influences of contemporary Western art. For the most part, he specialized in semi-Impressionist studies of flowers and figures and handled them with delicacy and unusually fluid transparency of color. In his early years, Le Pho preferred painting on silk instead of canvas, and to do so, developed a technique all his own. He later painted on canvas, and on this sturdier material, he achieved great richness and completely unique surface texture, which suggests the delicacy of the silk formerly used.

Le Pho’s work has a distinctive elegance, along with imagination and artistry, which immediately suggests a background of culture and taste. Consequently, one is not surprised to learn that Le Pho was the son of the Viceroy of Tonkin (Viet Nam) and that his first one-man show in Paris was considered sufficiently important to be sponsored by the Embassy of Indo-China.

Born in Viet Nam on August 2, 1907, Le Pho had a cosmopolitan background even as a young art student. He first studied at the École des Beaux-Arts of Hanoi for five years from 1925 to 1930, and then at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris during the following two years. In 1933 on his return to Hanoi he was appointed a professor in the Hanoi École des Beaux-Arts, a post that he held from 1933 to 1936. While studying in Paris he had the good fortune of being a student of Victor Tardieu who during his art student days had been a friend and companion of Matisse.

Le Pho’s professorship in Hanoi came to an end when he was sent back to Paris in 1937 as a delegate to the International Exposition in Paris and served also as a member of the jury of this Exposition. Since that time, Le Pho remained a resident of Paris. His first one-man show there in 1938 was the first step toward his subsequent active and important painting career in Europe. He had numerous one-man shows in Paris, Nice, Lyon, Strasbourg, Nantes, Rouen, Brest, Algiers, Casablanca, Brussels, Caracas, and Buenos Aires, as well as in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and Palm Beach. Also, he served as artistic advisor to the Embassy of Viet Nam in Paris; had been a prizewinner in the International Exhibition of Beaux-Arts of Saigon, and had become an annual exhibitor at the Salon d’Automne and the Salon des Indépendants in Paris.
