Founded in 1960 by art dealer Allan Stone (1932–2006), the New York gallery known today as Allan Stone Projects has been admired for over half a century. Celebrated for its eclectic approach and early advocacy of pivotal artists of the 20th century, Allan Stone Gallery was a leading authority on Abstract Expressionism, the New York dealer for Wayne Thiebaud for over forty years, and showed the works of Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline, Arshile Gorky, Joseph Cornell, John Graham and John Chamberlain. Stone also promoted the work of a younger generation of artists that were in conversation with other artists in his collection, working in the mediums of assemblage, collage and new modes of abstraction. In addition to modern masterworks and contemporary art, Allan Stone also collected and exhibited international folk art, Americana and important decorative arts and industrial design.

Philip Sherrod b. 1935

Philip Sherrod is known for his expressive paintings of street and city scenes. He paints the city as one experiences it: with an energy that seems to vibrate from within the painting. Streets, buildings and signs feature heavily in Sherrod’s paintings, underscoring tenets of American city culture and creating a cacophonous world. His pulsating style has been linked to Vincent Van Gogh and Chaim Soutine, artists who pioneered the personalized, expressive brushstroke. Sherrod’s lively and unfiltered psychic outpourings give the viewer direct access to the eyes through which Sherrod sees the world we inhabit.

Sherrod was born in 1935 in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. He received a BA in painting in 1959 from the Oklahoma State University and attended the Art Students League in the early 1960s. He is the recipient of several awards including a National Endowment for the Arts Grant in 1982 and a Pollock-Krasner Grant in 1989. His works are held in the collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C., the Museum of the City of New York, the Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University and the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, Providence, among others.
