Gallery/Dealer Details - Sragow Gallery

Sragow Gallery was established in 1974 by Ellen Sragow. Early exhibitions included works of then “emerging artists ” Ida Applebroug, Jeff Koons and Richard Prince, among others. Over the years, works by major photographers, installation artists, sculptors and painters have been exhibited.

The gallery is currently involved with African American Art, original prints from the New York School and American Art from the 1930’s and 40’s,

Since 1981, the Gallery has represented the Hollander Workshop (1964-1972). It was run by Tamarind trained, Master Printer, Irwin Hollander who printed some of the most important Abstract Expressionist prints of the late 1960’s including De Kooning, Guston and Motherwell. Prints by over 40 artists including; Cage, Francis, Lichtenstein, Nevelson, Rosenquist, Steinberg and Vicente were published by the workshop. The Gallery later included prints by Michael Goldberg, Alex Katz, Alice Neel, and Milton Resnick.

In 1982 the Gallery began to exhibit works by WPA era artists and was instrumental in renewing interest in and creating a market for this once neglected period of American Art. Sragow Gallery has been a leading source of work from the 1930’s and 40’s. Research in work from this period lead to the discovery of works by African American artists, which Sragow has been exhibiting since 1984, when it first showed the work of Joseph Delaney.
Some of the artists currently represented are Elizabeth Catlett, Howardena Pindell, John Wilson, self taught artist Bessie Nickens and works on paper by Sam Gilliam and Jacob Lawrence.

Ellen Sragow is a member of the IFPDA, International Fine Print Dealers Association and the Appraisers Association of America.
