IMPRESSIONIST AND MODERN Alon Zakaim Fine Art is proud to announce their Impressionist and Modern 2012 exhibitions, being held at both their Dover Street and Cork Street galleries. We are pleased to enclose within this catalogue various recent and important acquisitions of key works by the artists of these periods, a selection of which will be displayed at each site. These include works by Bonnard, Degas, van Rysselberghe, Anquetin, and Herbin. We are proud to include Edgar Degas’s Groupe de Danseuses in our collection of available works. This beautifully rendered charcoal on paper was recently included in the Royal Academy’s Degas exhibition. Alongside this, important works by Emile Othon Friesz, Roderic O’Conor, Louis Valtat, Louis Hayet, Ossip Zadkine and Henri Martin have been added to the gallery’s portfolio. Our Dover Street gallery presents a split-level exhibition; key works charting the evolution of Impressionism reveal the revolutionary explorations by the exponents of the period. The important developments made by Henri Lebasque in his sensuous work Nu Debout au Collier, and Federico Zandomeneghi in the rich and romantic tones of The Bouquet, are expanded upon as artists such as Henri Martin, Armand Guillaumin, Gustave Loiseau, and Blanche Hoschede-Monet in her beautiful and dense depictions of Claude Monet’s garden in Giverny, redefine the parameters of the technical possibilities of Impressionism. The first floor of our Dover Street space is dedicated to the work of Robert Marc. An important figure in the post-cubist movement during the 1960s, his work has in recent years seen a huge renewal of interest due to the complex compositional structures he employs and sophistication of his painterly technique. With an increasingly strong secondary market, Robert Marc has been rediscovered as an important artist who immersed himself not only in mastering the handling of paint but also the emotional possibilities inherent in his own style of cubism. Gallery opening hours are 9am - 6pm, Monday - Friday, or by appointment.
