George Krevsky Gallery specializes in 20th century
American art in the figurative tradition emphasizing the Ashcan,
Regionalist, Modernist and Social Realist schools. The gallery
is committed to
showcasing art of the highest quality that documents the cultural
history of the last century. The guiding philosophy is to make
historically significant fine art accessible to all levels of collecting.
Beginning its scope with the rise of urban scene
painting during the Ashcan period, the gallery features the paintings
and prints of Bellows, Sloan, Luks, Shinn and the later Reginald Marsh.
The theme of urban imagery and political activism continues with social
realists Ben Shahn, Jack Levine, Ruth Gikow and the Soyer brothers.
The gallery shows Depression-era WPA art with Regionalist works both
by national leaders Benton, Curry and Wood and also California practitioners
of the style such as John Haley, Erle Loran, and Dorothy Winslade.
Also exhibited are Post Armory Show Modernists including Steiglitz
circle artists Arthur Dove and Stuart Davis, Precisionists Louis Lozowick
and Howard Cook and the individual styles of Milton Avery and Rockwell
Kent. George Krevsky Gallery takes pride in its groundbreaking historical
exhibitions and its status as a primary resource for early 20th century
American art on the West Coast.
George Krevsky Gallery complements historical
works with a select group of Northern California contemporary artists
whose work is consistent with the gallery's direction. These artists,
Nancy Calef, Anthony Dubovsky, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Walter Kuhlman,
Glenna Putt, Mary Robertson, Debra Walker, and William Wheeler all
live and work in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Gallery also represents
the estates of several important California artists.
