Established in 1937 in Boston’s Back Bay, Childs Gallery holds an extensive inventory of paintings, prints, drawings, watercolors, and sculpture - focusing on fine American and European artwork, dating from the Renaissance through Contemporary. To that end, our clients can choose prints and drawings that range from Old Masters like Rembrandt, Goya, and Piranesi, to Whistler and all the 20th century notables, along with superb paintings and sculpture from the past 200 years. Our inventory emphasizes women artists, mid-20th century American Modernism, Abstract Expressionism, Social and Magic Realism, and other important artistic genres.

Stone Reclining Figure, Henry Moore

Though Childs carries a breadth of artwork dating from the Renaissance through the 21st century, we chose to focus our spring Print Fair booth on exceptional works from our Modern and Contemporary collections. Highlights include Henry Moore’s Stone Reclining Figure - a massive etching and rare artist’s proof, Walton Ford’s striking Pestvogel, and a monumental drawing by Chilean hyperrealist Claudio Bravo, as well as works by Milton Avery, Rockwell Kent, and Sol LeWitt. Complimenting these are pieces by Childs Gallery favorites such as Erik Desmazières, Sean Flood, Joan Hall, Emily Lombardo, and Margaret Rose Vendryes. Our booth selections represent a refined portion of what one might encounter when visiting our Boston Print Department.

What a diamond skull! from The Caprichos

Etching and aquatint

Edition of 12. Plate 53 from the series The Caprichos. Inscribed in the plate top right: '53'; titled in the plate lower center: 'What a diamond skull!.'. Numbered, signed, and dated in pencil. The Caprichos, by Emily Lombardo, is a series of etchings which are in direct conversation and homage to Francisco Goya's Los Caprichos, 1799. Both reveal the dark underbelly of cultural movements which ultimately serve to divide society across economic, racial, political, religious, and gender lines. Lombardo brings these issues into contemporary light through a queer feminist lens. Edition of 12. Suite of 80 prints plus frontispiece (states I and II) available as a boxed set. Please inquire for additional images.
