Due to the enthusiasm for our booth at Art Miami 2011, Edelman Arts is pleased to announce the opening of ‘St. Sebastian 1530 to 2011’, January 2nd to February 25th (10am to 7pm, Monday through Saturday) at our New York gallery.
This provocative exhibition explores the evolving interpretation of St. Sebastian from the Renaissance to the present. St. Sebastian is a figure well-established in the visual canon since the early Renaissance as the bound, sensuously semi-nude figure impaled with Roman arrows.
Our exhibition will be anchored by Titian’s portrait from c. 1530, a striking illustration of the artist’s virtuosic abilities to work with light and color to infuse St. Sebastian with life and emotion. In direct view of Titian’s masterpiece will be contemporary depictions of St. Sebastian by Doug Argue, Carlos Betancourt, Britt Boutros Ghali, Yves de Bradander, Macia Grostein, Red Grooms, Elisa Jensen, Cynthia Karalla, Cathy McClure, Michael Murphy, Louise Nevelson, Eric Rhein, and Christopher Winter.
