Hirschl & Adler Modern, founded in 1981, specializes in art from 1913 to the present, with a strong
emphasis on American Modernism and the post-war period. It also represents a select group of
established and mid-career contemporary artists who are featured regularly through scheduled solo and
group exhibitions in its gallery space in the Fuller Building, at the corner of 57th Street and Madison Avenue in New York City. Its parent company Hirschl & Adler Galleries, founded in 1952, has been specializing in important American and European art of all periods throughout its 68 year history and shares the space with Hirschl & Adler Modern.

Led for over 50 years by President and Director, Stuart P. Feld, and joined in 1999 by his daughter Elizabeth
Feld, Hirschl & Adler mounts about 8 to 10 special exhibitions per year, most accompanied by scholarly
publications. Both the contemporary and historical presentations have received critical acclaim and have resulted in the placement of works into major private collections around the world, as well as the finest American and international museums.

Self-taught Art

The Fuller Building
41 East 57th Street, 9th Floor
New York, NY 10022
New York, NY

Self-taught Art (also known as "Outsider Art") rejects convention. In that spirit, we have taken a different approach in this e-catalogue, which is presented as a dialogue instead of a list of works with short essays. Frequently asked questions about this often perplexing field are answered by Tom Parker, a Director at Hirschl & Adler and a well-respected authority and lecturer on the subject. Our hope is that this format will provide an easy-to-understand introduction to an area of the market that is often confusing and difficult to approach. Better yet, we hope that it might introduce some to an exciting field that is still in the process of gestation and discovery. History is being made, right now, by the legacy of these works, and the collectors, curators, and scholars that are moved by their visionary and emotional content. For biographical information on the artists presented here, please click through the links that are embedded in the text.

Every Lie to Truth

The Fuller Building
41 East 57th Street, 9th Floor
New York, NY 10022
New York, NY

Trompe l’oeil, at its best, subverts our expectations. When pushed beyond pure verisimilitude, it forces us to shift our perspective both intellectually and physically. "Every Lie to Truth" brings together four artists whose work has this rare ability. For them, trompe l’oeil is a strategy to engage the viewer in the deeper discussions with which they are concerned. Truth, futility, loss, and fallibility are the subjects here, operating beneath the illusory surfaces so skillfully composed. Rachel Granofsky, Kirk Hayes, Colin Hunt, and Meredith James urge us to question what it is that we are looking at and why. In doing so, we accept every lie in order to arrive at the truth behind it. Please use the provided link to view the exhibition's e-catalog. You may also visit the gallery's website to see installation images and to learn more about the artists.

Recent Watercolor Paintings

From the Upper West Side to SOHO and out to Coney Island, Frederick Brosen paints the honest and over-looked splendor of New York City’s rainy street corners and gritty façades. Fourteen watercolor paintings, ranging in scale from 10 x 9 inches to 45 x 32 inches, celebrate the city which has served as the artist’s career-long muse and lifelong home. These paintings offer quiet moments of reflection amidst the bustle of NYC, and their skilled-handling demonstrates that Brosen is a true master of watercolor.
