This exhibition presents approximately 35 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper from the fascinating collection of Benjamin Gollay. Works by Robert Motherwell and Willem de Kooning are standouts. De Kooning’s Woman is inscribed “To Ben and Jean from Bill.” Among the other artists represented are Norman Bluhm, Robert de Niro Sr. (the Oscar-winning actor’s father), Michael Goldberg, and Milton Resnick.
We are deeply grateful to Mr. Gollay’s widow, Jean, and his daughter, Elinor, for making this exhibition possible.”
