The Directors of Marlborough Gallery are pleased to announce an exhibition of works from the estate of Avigdor Arikha. The artist, who died in 2010, worked mostly in Paris and occasionally in Israel.
The exhibition will consist of approximately twenty works in oil, watercolor, pastel, and sumi ink and depict the subjects for which the artist is well known: portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and nudes. Regardless of the medium all Arikha’s work is remarkable for its subtlety, spontaneity, and tonal beauty. Arikha only worked in daylight and avidly insisted that not only his own works, but all works of art, be seen in natural light. Whatever his subject Arikha would finish the work in one sitting and this immediacy infused the work with vitality, freshness, and uncommon luminosity.
The Directors of Marlborough Gallery are pleased to announce a group exhibition entitled Large Sculptures with works by Magdalena Abakanowicz, Alice Aycock, Fernando Botero, Santiago Calatrava, Red Grooms, Robert Lazzarini, Clement Meadmore, Michele Oka Doner, Tom Otterness, Beverly Pepper, Arnaldo Pomodoro, George Rickey, David Rodríguez Caballero, Kenneth Snelson, Manolo Valdés and Ursula Von Rydingsvard. The exhibition will open on April 7th and remain on view through May 7th, 2016.
The Directors of Marlborough Gallery are pleased to announce Xu Lei: New Works, an exhibition of works in Chinese ink and mineral pigments on silk by Xu Lei. The exhibition, which opens on May 12th and will remain on view until June 18th, will be the artist’s first solo exhibition with Marlborough Gallery. While Xu Lei has been a prominent artistic figure in his native China since the mid-1980s, this occasion marks his first major solo exhibition in the United States.
