The British Museum Acquires Rare Picasso Prints
by BWW News Desk - Sep 26, 2016

The British Museum has acquired sixteen important lithograph prints and three aquatint prints by Pablo Picasso covering the post-war period from the late 1940s to the late 1950s. This acquisition closes the last major gap in the British Museum's representation of Picasso's achievements as a printmaker. Highlighting key themes in his work from this period, including his relationship with the youthful and independent-minded Francoise Gilot, the lithographs were produced in Paris when he was working in close collaboration with the printer Fernand Mourlot. The large aquatints from the early 1950s show Picasso's experimentation with the painterly possibilities of the technique working with young printers at the Paris workshop of Roger Lacouriere  with whom he had first worked in the 1930s on the Vollard Suite.

Blue Mountain Gallery to Display New Owen Gray Exhibit, 4/26
by BWW News Desk - Apr 7, 2016

Owen Gray's recent paintings will be presented at the Blue Mountain Gallery in Chelsea, New York City April 26th-May 21st. World of Darkness, World of Light is Gray's 10th solo show at the Blue Mountain Gallery, which he has been a member of since 1992.  Praised by critic Jed Perl of the New Republic for his “deft, fleet, subtly virtuosic brushwork that articulates shape and spirit with confidence and ease,” Gray presents the viewer two worlds in these paintings. The first one looks up into a vast, rich darkness that encompasses fantastical flying creatures lit brightly from below.  In the second world, the world of light, there is an emphasis on the vast sunlit world, where the open blue sky is inhabited by a dazzling array of winged creatures twirling and whirling every which way or down into the an aquatic netherworld where birds, insects, musical instruments and overturned boats inhabit a lush mysterious environment of dense vegetation.  Gray's paintings have a Rococo panache, and are influenced and inspired by the ceilings of the Italian painter Tiepolo, as well as by Peter Brueghel, Hieronymus Bosch, and 17th century Dutch Still Life.
