San Francisco Report

The artMRKT San Francisco fair, May 16th through 19th, was wonderful.  

Of course, it’s hard to beat a pier in that sticks hundreds of feet into the harbor – a site that comes equipped with sea lions (actually lounging, playing, roaring, near pier 39), sailboats of all ages, sunsets, and unbelievable views of the Golden Gate.

William Baziotes, Young Clown, 1944-4

The fair was extremely well attended throughout and we were on our toes the entire weekend. 

Special highlights for us in booth 125 were two William Baziotes pictograph-era (mid-1940s) paintings. These made a great instgallation with the full wall of his surrealist drawings from the ‘30s. There was also interest in work Theodore Haupt Three Graces, Hugh Mesibov, and Anne Ryan.
