As Art Basel Miami is just about to begin, I have been made aware of something those of you entertained at all by the event may like to know of. Third generation gallery owner, Isabelle Bsher, and her gallery, Galerie Gmurzynska, will be presenting photographer Jean Pigozzi’s new dog series’ Charles and Saatchi, the Dogs at her booth this year.
In addition to Pigozzi’s new photo exhibition, which is dedicated to man’s best friend, the gallery will showcase a variety of master works, including Yves Klein’s IKB 240 (1955), Fernand Léger’s Composition à la feuille(1931), Joan Miró’s Femme aux 3 cheveux (constellation from July 26, 1976) as well as select works by Robert Indiana and Roberto Matta- many of which are pictured on the easels in the feature photograph.
Throughout the years, Isabelle’s gallery has boasted many iconic artists and bold faced names, including Donald Judd, James Turrell, Yves Klein, Sylvester Stallone and Karl Lagerfeld, as well as Zaha Hadid, Robert Indiana, Richard Meier, Joan Miro, and Pablo Picasso.
Galerie Gmurzynska, which has locations in Zurich, Zug and St. Moritz Switzerland, specializes in modern and contemporary art as well as Russian avant-garde and is a MUST-SEE booth at Basel. Isabelle’s VIP opening dinners for NYC’s TEFAF and Miami’s Art Basel have been attended by major celebrities, including Sean Combs, Timbaland, Susan Sarandon, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Ellen Burstyn.
I may have an opportunity to speak with Isabelle Bsher in the next few days. Stay tuned for more content about Galerie Gmurzynska!
