New York Collector is a blog devoted to anyone who is passionate about art. We chose “Discovering Excellence” as our slogan because we hope to be a resource for collectors, artists and scholars to find works of art that merit the accolade. At New York Collector, we want to share our appreciation of the beauty of art with all who will see it. People can view at any time artistic images and learn more about them. The Internet has made the world smaller in many regards, and we think that is a great advantage when it comes to bring patrons of the arts together.

The New York School Press publishing company is dedicated to the production of very fine art books. It is concerned primarily with the documentation of the unique American art of the postwar period.

American Avant-Garde Exhibitions-The 9th St. Show


The New York School Abstract Expressionists Invitational Artists Annuals

Marilyn Stokstad, the British art historian, wrote: ’’When the United States emerged from World War II as the most powerful nation in the world, its new stature was soon reflected in the arts. American artists and architects-especially those living in New York City assumed the leadership in artistic innovation that by the late 1950s had been acknowledged across the Atlantic Ocean, even in Paris. Critics, curators and art historians, trying to follow art’s ‘mainstream,’ now focused on New York as the new center of modernism.’’

New York School Abstract Expressionism represented by Jackson Pollock, Willem De Kooning, Franz Kline and others became the leading art movement of the postwar era.
Artists including James Brooks, Nicolas Carone, Giorgio Cavallon, Willem & Elaine De Kooning, Enrico Donati, John Ferren, Perle Fine, Michael Goldberg, Robert Goodnough, Grace Hartigan, Hans Hofmann, Earl Kerkam, Franz Kline, Albert Kotin, Conrad Marca-Relli, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, Richard Pousette-Dart, Milton Resnick, James Rosati, Louis Schanker, David Smith, and Esteban Vicente were the 24 artists from the total of 256 participants who were included in the famous 9th St. Show, (1951) and in all the following New York Painting and Sculpture Annuals from 1953 to 1957. These Annuals were important because the participants were chosen by the artists themselves.
