MRG will feature Benny Andrews, Romare Bearden, Edward Clark, Beauford Delaney, Sam Gilliam, Norman Lewis, Betye Saar, Alma Thomas, Bob Thompson, Charles White and William T. Williams; each of these artists will also be included in the Tate Modern exhibition, conceptualized by curators Mark Godfrey and Zoe Whitley to investigate how ‘black art” was defined, rejected and redefined by artists across America.

Hannelore Baron Representation
Michael Rosenfeld Gallery to Represent the Estate of Hannelore Baron
(New York—June 22, 2017) Michael Rosenfeld Gallery proudly announces its exclusive representation of the Estate of Hannelore Baron (1926-1987). The gallery has long been an energetic champion of Baron, including her work in such group thematic shows as Fiber & Form: The Woman’s Legacy (1996), [un]common threads (2008) and most recently, Collage: Made in America (2017). Her work is currently featured in the gallery’s summer exhibition The Time Is N♀w (June 17–August 4).
Hannelore Baron is celebrated for her intimate collages and assemblages that, as Michael Brenson wrote in a 1989 New York Times review, “suggest both the condition of entrapment and the possibility of release.” The compassion, anger, dissent, humor, and silence that animate her work hint at her traumatic experiences as a child in Nazi Germany. However, she was often reluctant to discuss this part of her life out of concern that it would limit interpretations of her artwork. Influenced by ancient religious texts, illuminated pages of the Koran, Persian miniatures, botanical prints, and archeological finds, Baron was concerned about the human condition, including her own — and she stated, “I am a total contradiction.”
