Semi-occasional Secondary Market Exhibition of Excellent Pictures

In March 2015, we closed ArtREsource due to the sale of its building. We have found, in the several years since, that the need to sell or the desire to buy secondary market artwork is as strong as it ever was. With this show we hope to reconnect with gallery-goers who miss ArtREsource's wonderful collection of rarely seen offerings. In our Semi-occasional Secondary Market Exhibition of Excellent Pictures we present work by several fine artists, many from the Pacific Northwest, including Guy Anderson, James Castle, Michael Dailey, Morris Graves, Gaylen Hansen, Jacob Lawrence, Norman Lundin, Sherry Markovitz, Alden Mason, Peter Millett, Whiting Tennis, Mark Tobey, George Tsutakawa, and James Washington, Jr. We also have offerings by Eric Fischl, Robert Motherwell, Sean Scully, and Darren Waterston.

Guy Anderson



GUY ANDERSON
ANCIENT FORMS, 1973
Oil on paper
81 x 41 inches
$30,000

This splendid Guy Anderson painting features his use of a kind of Modernist translation of motifs often seen in the masks, boxes and carvings of Northwest Native tribes. It was professionally mounted at the time of its original purchase and is excellent condition. The paint is direct, the brushy quality of gesture is plainly seen, and the composition is both delicate and monumental.

Michael Dailey



MICHAEL DAILEY
WESTERN BEACH, EVENING, circa 1970s
Oil on canvas
41 x 44 inches
$16,000




MICHAEL DAILEY
SEASCAPE, 1982
Acrylic on canvas
66.25 x 81.75 inches
$23,000


Though this Dailey is an acrylic painting on canvas, it behave like one of the oil paintings from this period. The mood of the picture is mysterious as if the artist has caught the sky at the liminal moment of turning from day to night. The deep blue captures the richness of sky paintings from the Hudson River School, like Church or Kensett.



MICHAEL DAILEY
CALIFORNIA COAST, DAWN, 1990
Acrylic on canvas
29.75 x 40.5 inches
$10,000


Combining the colors of the first moments of the day with information about the lands, sea and sky, this late work by Dailey provides a sumptuous description of time and place.




MICHAEL DAILEY
LONG BEACH, 1997
Acrylic on canvas
57.25 x 82.5 inches
$22,000


The foggy atmosphere is captured here in the shifting tones from warm to cool. Dailey rarely used iridescent paint but in this work he uses it in the slightest of ways to capture magically light in the surface.



MICHAEL DAILEY
BY THE SILVER SEA, 1986
Acrylic on canvas
36.75 x 61.5 inches
$14,500

As with many of Dailey's works, the suggestion of place is indicated by its title and yet we know Dailey didn't travel to all of the places he names in titles. The Silver Sea must be lovely place to visit in one's mind.



MICHAEL DAILEY
DUKE'S MEADOW LANDSCAPE, 1974
Oil and mixed media on paper
15 x 18.25 inches
$4,400


In the early to mid-1970s, Dailey constructed paintings with a striking diagonal motion to them. Duke's Meadow relates to a number of large canvas works the artist made after a trip to England on a teaching sabbatical. The gently leaning swath of pale green color seems to be held in place between the edges of the matting.


MICHAEL DAILEY
SAND DUNES, SUNSET, 1986
Pastel and acrylic on paper
7.25 x 15.5 inches
$1,600


MICHAEL DAILEY
RISING TIDE AND THE SPRING CHANNEL, date unknown
Oil and mixed media on paper
8.25 x 11 inches
$3,000


This work on paper has no recorded date but it's likely from 1966 when Dailey's brushwork was expressionistic but he was still working with abstractions of landscape rather than non-objective abstraction.




MICHAEL DAILEY
SUMMER LANDSCAPE, 1957
Oil on canvas
41 x 48 inches
$14,000

This is the earliest Dailey work we have had in the gallery. It predates his brushy, abstract expressionist work of the 1960s, and relates more to Dailey's interest in Chinese paintings with its very poetic translation of the landscape of fields and foothills in his native Iowa.

Gaylen Hansen


FISHERMAN AND FISH, 1992
Oil on canvas
76 x 61 inches
$25,000


Hansen, as his alter ego The Kernal, stands in hip waders at the shore of a river so teeming with fish that they jump out of the water as they arc over him. Is this the fisherman's wildest dreams or his worst nightmare?




RED DOG HEAD, 2002
Oil on canvas
60 x 72 inches
$25,000

Morris Graves


Morris Graves
UNTITLED (bird), unknown
Graphite on paper
8.5 x 11.5 inches
SOLD

Sometimes, in the field of modern art, certain artists come forward for their abilities with an exquisitely descriptive and deceptively simple use of line. Schiele, Klimt, Rodin, Picasso, and Warhol all come to mind. Graves, in this drawing of a bird, invokes the whiplash line of Art Nouveau in all its grace and style. He invokes not just the the bird but "bird-ness" since his animals are rarely taxonomic in nature.





Morris Graves
WINTER BOUQUET, 1977
Lithograph
26 x 19 inches
Edition of 75
SOLD

For all its quietude, this simple, solitary blossom in a wine glass, manages to hold our attention in the abstract picture plane of a table and the emptiness of the room around it. This is Graves at his suggestive best, perhaps signaling his own feelings of solitude and hope.

Jacob Lawrence


Jacob Lawrence
ST. MARC from "The Life of Toussaint L'Ouverture," 1994

Silk screen on paper
18.5 x 28.25 inches
Edition of 124
$8,500

Jacob Lawrence, arguably the greatest artist ever to have lived in the Northwest, was a master of silhouette, shape, and color. His "Toussaint" works feature some of his most complex and colorful compositions. The prints are more than 4 times the size of his original gouache works.

Norman Lundin


METAL DOOR #2, 1988
Oil on canvas
48 x 36 inches
$11,000


Here, the metal door of a safe or a bank vault exudes a dry, burnished toughness despite being only oil paint on canvas.



NORMAN LUNDIN
ELECTRICAL OUTLETS, 1985
Pastel on paper
28 x 44 inches
$6,000


Two wall outlets and a line of conduit draw our attention in an otherwise empty room.

$4,500 framed




Alden Mason
UNTITLED, circa early 1970s
Oil on board
18 x 24 inches
$5,500


Mason's sense of humor was a major component in much of his life's work. Here an abstract composition appears to be part starship, part sea creature, floating in a ground of grey brushwork. This work just predates his famous Burpee Garden Series.

GEORGE TSUTAKAWA
UNTITLED (Branches),
Gansai watercolor on paper
17 x 11 inches
SOLD


Tsutakawa's credentials as a Modernist are in full play here in this abstraction of branches and blossoms or berries. It's fresh and bright, a bit surprising for an artist associated with sumi ink and with bronze sculptures.
