Goodness that's a lot of art on one wall! It's a beautiful collection. I love these examples of "packed" gallery spaces. There's some great, great work in there.

At the De Young in San Francisco, the "Masters of Venice" opens with a photograph of a tableau by David Teniers the Younger (Flemish, 1610-90), "Archduke Leopold Wilhelm in his Gallery in Brussels." Paintings -- mostly grand in size and style, wars, historical pieces, portraits -- covered the walls, it seemed, all the way to the ceiling. The Academy in Paris placed works up to the ceiling, hanging the most "treasured" works at eye level -- but then they did refuse the Impressionists' first works ... Gertrude and Leo Stein's Rue de Fleurus salon was covered in rather more modern work, from Manet to Cézanne to Picasso and Matisse. I think this gallery's choice to continue the tradition is brave! -- but I am very glad you concentrated on giving us individual abstract works... they are really splendid in energy, in variety! A wonderful show for an early Sunday morning. Thank you!!

Such a great show, with some wonderful works. I love the drawing by Thornton Willis, and the 2 small paintings by Don Christensen look lush! Thank you, most enjoyable post.

Thanks Paul! Everytime I go back to the gallery, I see more great work.

The 2 gems to the left of Jeanne Thomsen's soulful abstraction are by Amy Hill.
