For more than thirty-five years, Hollis Taggart Galleries has specialized in fine American art of the 19th and 20th centuries, particularly that of Abstract Expressionism and Post-War art. The gallery also has vast expertise in art of the Ashcan Group, Stieglitz Circle modernism, Hudson River School, and Impressionism.
The gallery is located on the Upper East Side’s Museum Mile, just across the street from the Whitney Museum of American Art. In this ideal setting, the gallery is poised to continue its mission of presenting numerous museum-quality exhibitions, which have significantly contributed to the study of American art. Curated by the gallery’s directors with foremost scholars in the field, Hollis Taggart Galleries has organized critically acclaimed exhibitions. We have been pleased to collaborate with over thirty museums and institutions that have loaned works to these shows. Substantial scholarly catalogues accompany each exhibition; these publications are important sources of information and new research.
Hollis Taggart Galleries is sponsoring three catalogues raisonnés. Recently completed, the two-volume catalogue raisonné of Pennsylvania Impressionist Daniel Garber includes over 1,500 entries. In the year 2000, the gallery launched the Frederick Carl Frieseke catalogue, which is currently being compiled by the artist’s grandson. The newest addition to our sponsorship is the catalogue raisonné of Surrealist Kay Sage.
In addition to providing the public with informative exhibitions, the gallery advises private collectors, corporations, and museums on acquisitions. The gallery also consults with clients to assist them in the development of their personal collections.
Hollis Taggart Galleries welcomes all inquiries from collectors who may wish to sell or consign works of art or estates. The gallery can provide appraisal services as well.
