Unlikely Angel: Dwight Ripley & the New York School
On view February 9 through March 18, 2006
A rare glimpse into the archives of Dwight Ripley, little-known figure behind the pivotal Tibor de Nagy Gallery.
Showplace for New York School painters, the gallery also published a series of chapbooks by many of those who later became known as the New York School of Poets. Among the items on display are John Ashbery’s first book, Turandot; a rare copy of Frank O'Hara's Oranges (original cover by Grace Hartigan); a painting by Helen Frankenthaler; and samples of Ripley’s own drawings.
