Alexander the Great: The Iolas Gallery 1955-1987
 
Paul Kasmin Gallery, 293 10th Ave., NYC

the exhibition showcases work by many major artists whose careers were defined through their work with influential 20th century art dealer Alexander Iolas. “Iolas played a pivotal role in twentieth century art in America. He is recognized for being among the first to introduce American audiences to Surrealism, mounting Andy Warhol’s first gallery exhibition, and being an artist’s advocate who championed work according to his own tastes, rather than popular trends. Iolas was known throughout his career as a passionate art lover who built deep personal relationships and facilitated intercontinental connections among artists, gallerists, and collectors via his eponymous galleries in Athens, Geneva, Madrid, Milan, New York and Paris. His influence spread to arts patrons as well. His close work with Dominique de Menil, for example, helped to define and build her collection.”

artists include: Victor Brauner, Giorgio de Chirico, William N. Copley, Joseph Cornell, Max Ernst, Lucio Fontana, Alain Jacquet, Ray Johnson, Marina Karella, Yves Klein, Les Lalanne, René Magritte, Roberto Matta, Jules Olitski, Man Ray, Martial Raysse, Ed Ruscha, Niki de Saint Phalle, Harold Stevenson, Takis, Dorothea Tanning, Paul Thek, Jean Tinguely, and Andy Warhol.

My favorite thing about the Frick Museum is that the portraits of Thomas More and Thomas Cromwell are always positioned facing each other. They basically get to glare at each other for all of eternity and I sort of think they’d both be OK with that
