This December, James Graham & Sons will move to a new location on the Upper East Side of Manhattan at 32 East 67th Street. The gallery will inaugurate the space with an exhibition devoted to the work of Paul Manship, Walter Gay, Norman Bluhm, Guy Pène du Bois and other gallery artists.
“We are pleased to have found such an attractive location for the next 150 years,” noted Robert C. Graham Jr, chairman, James Graham & Sons, referring to the celebration of the gallery’s 150th anniversary this year. “We look forward to continuing to offer important Nineteenth and Twentieth Century American paintings, American and European sculpture, British ceramics and contemporary art in our new space.”
Currently through November 10, the gallery is presenting an exhibition of recent oil painting on wood by Mary McDonnell at the gallery’s current address at 1014 Madison Avenue.
James Graham & Sons celebrated the gallery’s 150th anniversary this year with a major exhibition, “James Graham & Sons: A Century and a Half in the Art Business,” May 10⁊une 23 and the publication of a book about the history of the gallery. Founded in 1857, James Graham & Sons is one of only five New York galleries remaining from the Nineteenth Century and, five generations later, the oldest gallery in the city under the same ownership.
The gallery has recently published James Graham & Sons: A Century and a Half in the Art Business by Betsy Fahlman, professor of art history at Arizona State University, which offers insight into how the New York City art world began and evolved.
James Graham & Sons is known for Nineteenth and Twentieth Century American paintings, American and European sculpture, British ceramics and contemporary art. Recognized as a leading authority in numerous genres of American art, the gallery specializes in the Hudson River School, American Impressionism, the Ashcan School, the Eight and the Stieglitz Circle.
The sculpture department of the gallery is known for American and European bronzes from the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries, as well as Modernist and contemporary work.
Many important works of art have been exhibited in the gallery over the past 150 years, including work by such American artists as Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Hart Benton, Martin Johnson Heade, Oscar Bluemner, James Peale, Sanford Robinson Gifford, Guy Pène du Bois, Andrew Wyeth, Alice Neel, Frederic Remington and Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
