Your Price : $45.00

A biography of Earl Stendahl, the pioneering Los Angeles art dealer who helped establish the young city’s cultural credentials, championing leading California Impressionists such as Guy Rose, William Wendt, Edgar Payne and Nicolai Fechin, and introducing the West Coast to Modernist masters such as Pablo Picasso and Marcel Duchamp. He was also one of the first dealers in the world to promote Pre-Columbian art, which was only beginning to be appreciated as fine art. The fascinating tale of this visionary businessman is skillfully told by his granddaughter-in-law, whose husband is the current president of the still family-owned Stendahl Galleries. April Dammann has extensively researched the large family archives, as well as holdings in the Smithsonian, and paints an engaging portrait of the “exhibitionist”, illustrated with many wonderful photographs of Stendahl, his galleries, and of the important figures of the Los Angeles and international art scenes who occupied his vast realm of influence.
