Hirschl & Adler Modern now Representing Stone Roberts

Hirschl & Adler Modern is pleased to announce our representation of Stone Roberts, a renowned leader in contemporary figurative painting. Best known for his elaborate paintings of contemporary street scenes and sophisticated interiors, Roberts creates masterful compositions that combine the best of figure painting, still life, genre, and landscape.

Roberts’ influences are wide-ranging, and include Greek Mythology, Roman Classicism, Old Masters, 17th Century Dutch interiors, the figures of Ingres, and the still lifes of Balthus. Four of his most ambitious paintings, including Grand Central Terminal: An Early December Noon in the Main Course, are on view through September 16 at the Museum of the City of New York in his solo exhibition Stone Roberts: New York Paintings (see: http://

Roberts received his from Yale, where he studied drawing and painting with William Bailey, and his MFA from the Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, and Rome, Italy. His works are found in numerous public and private collections throughout the United States and in Europe, including the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY and the Louis-Dreyfus Family Collection, NY. Hirschl & Adler is currently preparing a solo exhibition for Spring 2013.

Roberta Smith of the New York Times Reviews Richard Lonsdale-Hands Exhibit

October 14, 2011: ‘The Paintings of Richard Lonsdale-Hands (1913-1969)’ (closes on Saturday) These bright, often bracingly primitive, woman-obsessed canvases are the work of an impassioned amateur (and leading designer and advertising magnate in postwar Britain) who made his New York debut at this gallery in 1961. His return show, 50 years later, suggests that he would have been a shoo-in for Marcia Tucker’s 1978 “ ‘Bad’ Painting” exhibition at the New Museum. The harshness of his thrift-shop style still startles, and the best paintings — including a portrait of his wife and the cheerfully macabre “Unhinged” — are exceptions, but well worth the look-see.

Elizabeth Turk Awarded Second Major Grant in Six Months

Sculptor Elizabeth Turk has once again been singled out by a major American foundation as an artist of exceptional promise. Less than six months after receiving a presigious 2010 grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, she has been awarded an important grant by The Barnett & Annalee Newman Foundation. We congratulate Elizabeth on her continued run of success.
Elizabeth Turk Awarded Prestigious MacArthur Fellowship

Hirschl & Adler congratulates sculptor Elizabeth Turk, a recipient of the 2010 John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation’s Fellowship award. Known popularly as ‘genius’ grants, the MacArthur Fellowships are awarded each year to talented individuals who "show exceptional merit and promise for continued and enhanced creative work." According to the Foundation, "the fellowship is not a reward for past accomplishment, but rather an investment in a person's originality, insight, and potential."

Turk is an immensely skilled artist who creates in her marble sculpture a provocative tension between the intrinsic strength of the medium and its unexpected fragility. Her work is an ongoing “conversation” with the stone, a deep and serious exploration of form and material, a questioning of boundaries. Once 400-pound blocks, the marbles emerge from Turk’s hand as impossibly ethereal art forms.

Hirschl & Adler has proudly represented Elizabeth Turk for over a decade. We have staged two major solo exhibitions of her work and numerous group exhibitions in that time. Most recently we presented an important installation of Turk sculpture at the 2010 Armory Show in New York. In addition to many private collections, her work resides in such prominent institutions as the Corcoran Gallery of Art and National Museum of Women in the Arts, both in Washington, D.C., as well as the Mint Museum in Charlotte, North Carolina.
And her work was recently acquired by the U.S. State Department’s ART in Embassies program with plans to display it at the United States Embassy in Bagdad, Iraq.
