Three Artist's Sketchbooks

23 East 73rd Street
New York, NY 10021

February 27, 2018 - March 4, 2018
For the Art Show, Mary-Anne Martin|Fine Art presented an installation of three original artist’s sketchbooks: Diego Rivera, The Italian Sketchbook 1920-21; Gunther Gerzso, The Surrealist Sketchbook 1943-46; and Leonora Carrington, Untitled (Sketches from Down Below), October 1940. The Rivera sketchbook, which consists of 30 drawings, was made on an exploratory trip to Italy to study Italian Renaissance murals before the artist returned to Mexico to lead the Mexican Mural Movement. The Gerzso sketchbook, which is in the original binding, contains 54 studies executed during his surrealist phase when he was influenced by expatriate artists including Matta, Paalen, Varo, Breton, and Alice Rahon. The Carrington sketchbook, drawn while she was committed to the madhouse in Santander, Spain, following her forced separation from her lover Max Ernst, is presented to the public for the first time ever. Carrington was encouraged to draw by her psychiatrist Dr. Luis Morales as part of her therapy, which also included the seizure-inducing drug Cardiazol.

David Alfaro Siqueiros

Lost and Found: Siqueiros Self-Portrait

23 East 73rd Street
New York, NY 10021

June 16, 2017 - July 31, 2017
Mary-Anne Martin Fine Art announced the “discovery” of an important painting by the Mexican Muralist, David Alfaro Siqueiros, the 1937 Self-Portrait with Mirror. Known only from a black and white photograph, this extraordinary painting, purchased from the artist by the American composer George Gershwin (1898-1937), has been referred to as “lost” for about 80 years. Gershwin died of a brain tumor at the age of 38 and so the history of the painting marks the end of a dramatic and tragic story. Gershwin’s estate was inherited by his mother and the painting hung for most of its existence on Central Park West in New York City. Not seen in public since early 1937, the work was exhibited in a mini exhibition at Mary-Anne Martin Fine Art, surrounded by other key works by Siqueiros, including: Landscape (Taxco), c. 1931, La Patrona, 1939, Portrait of Señorita Martita Orrego Matte, 1942, and The Good Neighbor Policy, 1951

Mary-Anne Martin|Fine Art exhibited a selection of works on paper by Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington celebrating the centennial year of her birth. Carrington’s intelligence, humor, and technical skills are readily apparent in her drawings, which offer viewers an insight into her artistic process and vivid imagination. The show included studies for paintings and prints, costume sketches and set designs, diary notes and political satire.
