Booth #108

Dolan/Maxwell, Philadelphia, PA

View on Artsy

Dolan/Maxwell specializes in fine prints and works on paper by artists from the 1930s to the present. Their works are presented seriously and in depth with emphasis on Modernist works from the WPA era, Europe and Atelier 17, the New York School, art by African Americans as well as International Contemporary artists. We work closely with the artists and the estates of artists we represent. We augment these works with carefully chosen sculptures and paintings on canvas or panel by artists whose work complements our core and are of particular interest to us. We have notable expertise in works on paper in all media.

Dolan/Maxwell will present a selection of rare and important Modern and Contemporary prints and works on paper, as well as related works in bronze by Elizabeth Catlett and Helen Philips. Our booth will highlight works by artists who created prints at the celebrated Atelier 17 in Paris and New York in the 1930s,& 1940s. Notable from this group are superb prints made the celebrated women who found a rare opportunity for exposure and acceptance in the male-dominated art world. Included are Sue Fuller, Terry Haass, Helen Phillips, Minna Citron, Nina Negri, Barbara Olmsted, and Dorothy Dehner.

Stanley William Hayter, founder of Atelier 17 was an integral part of the Surrealist movement in Paris and we will include rare Surrealist prints by Dorothea Tanning, Jackson Pollock, Mauricio Lasansky, Gabor Peterdi, R E Marton, Andre Racz, Enrique Zanartu, and Yves Tanguy. Of special note are a 1938 plaster print by Hayter, and a copper plate & resultant etching by Tanguy.
