Agi Katz of the Boundary Gallery sends her best wishes over the Festive Season and the New Year
2015 Christmas is not far away; why not celebrate by giving pictures, something you yourself would appreciate. As you probably know the best presents are the ones that hurt to give away.
We have assembled a collection that is in the spirit of joy, colour and celebration at good (ie: discounted) prices.
The above prices do not include frames but include VAT
RCA 1987 Portfolio Prints
The above images are from the RCA 1987 portfolio, ed. 48, frames not included, 30 x 30cm
What could be a better present than one of Olga Lehmann’s pictures on the 75th anniversary of the Blitz?
None of the above bookplates is framed
And if you want to be really extravagant:
Born in Poland, Menkes enrolled at the age of 16 at the Institute of Decorative Art of Lvov and became a restorer of rural churches. In 1919 he enrolled in the Fine Arts Academy of Arts in Krakow but by 1922 he was in Berlin in the studio of Alexander Archipenko. Paris was his next port of call and settled there in 1923 and became a member of the Ecole de Paris, where he befriended Zak and Chagall among others. However, he went back to Poland in 1929 to look for subsidies but returned to Paris the same year (to stay for good “at any price”). He participated in the Salon d’ Automne (1924 – 1927) and the Salon d’Independants (1925 – 1928) and the Tuileries Salon (1928 – 1931 and 1938). From 1930 onwards he exhibited in Paris, Toronto and New York. In 1939 he settled in the USA where he died.
His strong colours combined with richly textured contours became important elements of his compositions. During his American period, he concentrated on still lives and interior scenes, often depicting his own studio in Riverdale, New York.
Other good news is that the Boundary Gallery will be participating at the London Art Fair 2016 at the Business Design Centre, January 20-24th.
