Press Release

Hollis Taggart Galleries is pleased to offer an important group of paintings and sculptures from a prominent California collection. Combining art historical significance with tremendous visual appeal, these artworks exemplify the key movements of the early twentieth century.

From the influential Cubism of Max Weber’s Three Figures, to the sophisticated geometric abstraction of Hans Burkhardt’s Artist and Model, to the elegant simplicity of Elie Nadelman’s Man In a Top Hat, these pieces display the broad range of stylistic idioms modernists explored.
