Established in 1992, Mark Murray Fine Paintings specializes in European and American paintings from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Formerly at 39 East 72 Street, the gallery relocated in 2015 to an historic block between Lexington and Third Avenue. The new space, at 159 East 63 Street, has a sculpture garden that backs on the new home of the Dahesh Museum of Art and adjoins the historic Barbara Rutherford Hatch House, once home to Gypsy Rose Lee and Jasper Johns, among several illustrious occupants.
Mark Murray is known for showing French and American Impressionists; Pre-Raphaelites; examples from the Hudson River School; Marine paintings by British and Scandinavian artists; Sporting art by British and American painters including racing and hunting subjects; landscapes by Corot and his followers in Barbizon; exquisite views of Italy and Spain; traditional 19th century sculpture by Barye, Mêne and others; and a substantial collection of Orientalist paintings. While most works date from 1830-1930 there are often exceptions such as a group of 17th century Italian drawings. The gallery caters to an international group of collectors and private and public institutions.
Mark Murray Fine Paintings is showing a selection of fine works on paper including an unusual pencil study of a Clothesline by Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot and Fano on the Adriatic, an early J.M.W. Turner watercolor after Robert Cozens. A major highlight is a group of works on paper and select oils by American painter Walter Gay, and a strikingly beautiful portrait in colored chalk by Walter Gay’s good friend Paul César Helleu of Winaretta Singer, daughter of Singer sewing machine magnate Isaac Singer and wife of Prince Edmond de Polignac. Other European artists on view include Antoine-Louis Barye, Fritz Gärtner, Henri Joseph Harpignies, Sir Alfred Munnings, Sir Edward Poynter, and David Roberts. Works on paper by American artists Lockwood DeForest, Edwin Lord Weeks, John Whorf, and Reginald Marsh will also be featured in the exhibition.
