Jonathan Boos Will Move to Larger Madison Avenue Space
Next month, Jonathan Boos gallery will move from its current East 72nd Street home to a larger space at 801 Madison Avenue. The six-year-old Upper East Side gallery specializes in 20th-century American paintings, drawings, and sculpture, particularly Ashcan-realism, American scene painting, and Stieglitz-circle modernism.
The new space, located on the fifth floor of 801 Madison Avenue, is scheduled to open in mid-May and will present specially curated exhibitions featuring work from both private and museum collections. The gallery carries inventory from Milton Avery, George Bellows, Thomas Hart Benton, Harry Bertoia, Oscar Bluemner, Joan Mitchell, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Ben Shahn, to name just a few.
Owner Jonathan Boos previously worked in his family’s Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, auction house, Frank H. Boos Gallery, before serving as curator and adviser to Richard Manoogian and the Masco Corporation Collection in Taylor, Michigan. Having helped amass that company’s American art collection, Boos opened his own namesake operation in 2008, with branches in New York and Bloomfield Village, Michigan.
