Park Slope Gallery Fall-Winter 2022

 

Bibel - Refugees
Refugees
Leon Bibel
oil/canvas
1938
 
As war raged in Europe in the last century, Leon listened to the radio as he worked on his art. In 1938, as the Spanish Civil War was claiming some of his colleagues, he painted Refugees, a searing image of the effects of war on families desperately fleeing to safety. The immediacy of the conflict, and the helplessness, is captured with astonishing intensity.
 
Will this madness ever stop?
 
Almost a century later, we are witnessing an attempt to erase the Ukrainian people and culture by one madman. Ukraine is in our hearts and minds. We weep, but Ukraine must prevail.
 
There is no alternative.
 

PARK SLOPE GALLERY is a by-appointment-only art gallery in the historic Park Slope section of Brooklyn. Now in our 35th year, we have always endeavored to provide excellent quality art and custom archival framing services to our clients. For just a tiny sampling of the many lovely notes from our clients through the years, please see our “Testimonials” section.

 

Park Slope Gallery specializes in the art of the era of the WPA Federal Art Project,and American mid-century art and design.  We represent the estate of Leon Bibel, who participated in the New York City Federal Art Project of the WPA, and who in the early 1960s transitioned to large scale oil paintings. In the 1970s, he developed a very unique wood sculpture format, “carpentered painting”.

 

We represent several superb contemporary artists, all of whom have special sections on our website, listed under “Artists”. We also offer an extensive collection of vintage and historic Brooklyn and New York City material among many other categories.

 

Our custom archival framing services also include shepherding works on paper and paintings through conservation and restoration if the artwork requires it. We have had very long relationships with excellent art professionals who are all experts in their fields. We do all of the custom framing on site. Our art and framing services are accompanied by a written guarantee.
