Chronologically, the exhibition begins with Hudson River School views by Francis Augustus Silva and William Rickarby Miller of New York Harbor and Staten Island, respectively. The show moves onto the Gilded Age, where the early Jewish-American artist Hermann Hyneman is represented. Ashcan examples by William Glackens, Jerome Myers, and Guy Pene du Bois add to the impression of an ever-bustling and electrifying urban center. The highlight of the exhibition is a large wintry street scene of Hudson Street in the Tribeca neighborhood by the impressionist Guy Wiggins. The circa 1932 painting was originally in the inventory of the Grand Central Art Gallery and portrays the Art Deco tower of the Western Union Building, in addition to the commercial warehouse of The Paul R. Dillon Company, one of the largest of the wholesale dealers of eggs and butter in the region. Gritty works by WPA artists Bertram Hartman and William Sharp round out the later years of the Great Depression, before giving light to a wonderful rooftop view by Herman Rose, which was detailed in a 1955 ArtNews article written by Fairfield Porter.

About Lincoln Glenn Gallery
Lincoln Glenn, LLC was founded in 2022, with a mission to present American art from the 19th century to the contemporary period. The gallery exhibits works from artists of the Hudson River School, American Impressionism, Ashcan School, and American Modernism, with a particular focus on Abstract Expressionism and Color Field painting. Lincoln Glenn wishes to revive the legacies and explore the careers of artists working between the 1950s and 1970s who made significant contributions to art history, but whose names may have been forgotten by time.
Lincoln Glenn is proud to open its doors at 126 Larchmont Avenue in the town of Larchmont in Westchester County, New York. The storefront allows the gallery to host multiple exhibitions each year dedicated to introducing select primary and secondary market paintings, works on paper, and sculptures to the public. Lincoln Glenn is honored to represent Sherron Francis as well as the estates of abstract expressionists Gene Hedge, Calvert Coggeshall, and Sal Sirugo.
Lincoln Glenn also works in an advisory capacity on acquisitions to private collectors, art advisors, interior designers, and museums. The gallery welcomes all submissions and offers from collectors who wish to sell or consign paintings, sculptures, and estates. The gallery can also provide appraisal services for financial planning, estate tax, and insurance purposes. Lincoln Glenn serves the towns of Larchmont, Mamaroneck, Harrison, Rye, Pelham, Greenwich, Bronxville, Scarsdale, Chappaqua, the cities of New Rochelle and New York City, and beyond.
