The Unbroken Line: Old and New Masters

May 11 – June 1, 2018

 

Robert Simon Fine Art and Grand Central Atelier present an exhibition of contemporary paintings and drawings alongside old masters works, revealing the unbroken line of fine art into the 21st Century.

Art historian and art dealer Robert Simon will curate a selection of Old Master paintings and drawings paired with new works by New York-based painters, Jacob Collins, Colleen Barry, Anthony Baus, Will St. John, Edward Minoff and Justin Wood, who are all principle instructors at Grand Central Atelier, one of the world’s premier ateliers training artists in the classical tradition of drawing, painting and sculpture. Included are select works by recent graduates Rachel Li, Mackenzie Swenson, Savannah Tate Cuff and Dale Zinkowski.

These 21st Century atelier artists are carefully attuned to the idea that in order to evince this language with roots in the ancient world, one must first be a humble observer of nature and bear witness to its nuance and sensitivity. When fully realized through years of serious commitment to study, this language possesses great power to communicate the human condition with limitless beauty and endless variation.
