Weyhe Gallery, Mt. Desert, ME

View on Artsy

With a focus on modern prints, the Weyhe gallery, founded in 1919, is in its fourth generation within the family. Founding gallerist Erhard Weyhe, an avid collector, travelled regularly to Europe for inventory. Stateside, he supported aspirant artists and gave shows to many that would jumpstart their careers. The gallery/bookshop came to be a gathering place for artists and collectors alike. Once a focal point of the art scene at 794 Lexington Avenue in New York, the gallery relocated to Mount Desert Island Maine in 1994. Though no longer the brick-and-mortar shop of its heyday, the gallery retains a rich inventory of modern prints, many of which were originally published by Weyhe in the early twentieth century. Artists in the collection include Dwight, Kent, Matisse, Picasso, Orozco, and Rivera
