About

Al Dickstein New York school Abstract Geometric work. Came in with small collection of his work including signed letters and a signeed card and some monogrammed pieces.. Signed with monogram and inscribed and signed verso. Showed at New York's Stable Gallery and the Museum of Modern Art, New York Kept a studio at 31 Coenties Slip, formerly Fred Mitchell’s art workshop, overlooking the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge, between Wall Street and the Battery. A number of important artists have studios on the Slip: Ellsworth Kelly at 3-5, Jack Youngerman and his wife Delphine Seyrig the actress at 27, Leonore Tawney, the weaver at 27, Agnes Martin also at 27 and 3-5, John Kloss the designer at 3-5, Alvin Dickstein at 25. Cy Twombly paints his last show at the Stable Gallery in Robert Indiana studio at 31, and Gerald Laing paints his first American works in Indiana’s next building at 25. The Stable Gallery, originally located on West 58th Street in New York City, was founded in 1953 by Eleanor Ward. The Stable Gallery hosted early solo New York exhibitions for artists including Robert Indiana and Andy Warhol. Eleanor Ward had received much encouragement for her gallery from important figures such as Christian Dior, and by the mid 1950s the Stable Gallery would begin to annually host a homage exhibit to the “9th Street Art Exhibition” of 1951 where Ward would bring forth notable Abstract Expressionist artists including Willem de Kooning, Phillip Guston, Varujan Boghosian, Howard Kanovitz, Franz Kline, Nicolas Carone, Knox Martin, Robert Motherwell, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Ad Reinhardt, Fritz Bultman, and Jack Tworkov to exhibit. The Stable Annuals represented what came to be known as the New York School abstract expressionists of the 1950s. However, the first and second generation Abstract Expressionist artists began to go in their own directions, and new art movements in 1960s including Pop art would become more currently fashionable. In light of those developments Ward expanded the gallery beyond having only a permanent stable of artists, and began bringing forth artists of various movements to exhibit, including: Joseph Cornell, Varujan Boghosian, Edward Dugmore, John Ferren, Ian Hornak, Alex Katz, Lowell Nesbitt, Conrad Marca-Relli, Edward Dugmore, Marisol Escobar, Joan Mitchell, Isamu Noguchi, Larry Rivers, Richard Stankiewicz, Cy Twombly, Jack Tworkov, Will Insley, and Wilfred Zogbaum. The Stable Gallery organized Andy Warhol’s first one-man show in November 1962, after Leo Castelli turned him down
