The Masters takes place at the three different venues, with staggered openings.  Hirschl & Adler, on Thursday, October 18 will show and make available for sale paintings and sculptures by major 20th century ASL master artists.  On Sunday, October 28,  511 Projects in Chelsea, opens a show of drawings, prints, and oils and watercolors by many of the same artists. On Thursday, November 1, the Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery at the Art Students League opens its exhibition of works from the last years of the 20th century through present by master artist teachers and students.

The Masters will present 100 artworks made by major artists, from 1900 to the present, who studied, taught, or studied and taught at the Art Students League.


On view will be works by the school’s early leaders like, Frank Vincent DuMond and Robert Henri; then their students, such as George Bellows, Norman Rockwell and Guy Pène du Bois; and then their “offspring,” including Reginald Marsh, and Yasuo Kuniyoshi.


Subsequent generations of artists whose works will be included in the show and sale are Thomas Hart Benton, Fairfield Porter, David Smith, Adolf Gottlieb, Hans Hofmann, Lee Krasner, Stuart Davis, Philip Guston, Paul Jenkins, Will Barnet, James Rosenquist, Robert Rauschenberg, Knox Martin, and Norman Lewis, among others.


George Grosz, Mark Rothko, Miguel Pou y Becerra and Lorenzo Homar, Celeste Woss y Gil Vaclav Vytlacil, Philip Guston, John Graham, Lee Bontecou, Arshile Gorky, Louisa Matthiasdottir, Ai Weiwei, and Zhang Hongtu are a few of the contributors to the amazing cauldron of cultures, ages, races, and ethnicities that has always been at the core of the Art Students League’s practice and community. Many of these artists will be represented in The Masters.

The exhibition at the Art Students League includes the work of these current instructors: Frederick Brosen, Naomi Campbell, Robert  Cenedella, Bruce Dorfman, Cornelia Foss, Ronnie Landfield, Pat Lipsky, and James Little.

The Masters is a celebration of this unique art institution and of the students and teachers who are central to its history and its impact on art-making, art history, and the American tradition of openness and acceptance of diverseness.  A portion of the proceeds of opening night sales will go to benefit the Art Students League.
