The American Art Fair returns

Editorial Staff Exhibitions

George Washington by John Wood Dodge, 1864. Courtesy of Driscoll Babcock Galleries, New York, New York.

The ninth edition of this elegant fall showcase will fill the top three floors of the 1896 Renaissance revival style Bohemian National Hall on Manhattan’s Upper East Side with stock from seventeen top-tier art galleries. The show specializes in nineteenth- and twentieth-century work, and will feature hundreds of portraits, landscapes, still lifes, studies, and sculptures, a highlight of which will be George Washington (1864), a depiction of the Founding Father—looking rather irritated, it seems to us—by the virtuoso draftsman John Wood Dodge. Lectures by Kathleen Foster of the Center for American Art and by historian Karen Wilkin will enliven the proceedings on the first two days of the fair.
