NEW YORK, NY.- Waterhouse & Dodd New York presents the gallery's 25th Anniversary Exhibition at their new Madison Avenue space, which is dedicated to artists from the Post-War and Contemporary art eras.

For their inaugural exhibition, the gallery highlights important paintings, sculpture and works on paper by world-renowned artists including Alexander Calder, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Allan D'Arcangelo, Jim Dine, Robert Indiana, Andy Warhol and Tom Wesselmann.

Works featured include an iconic portrait of former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis by Andy Warhol, titled "Blue Jackie" (1964). This painting belongs to the artist's ubiquitous "Jackie" silkscreen series and is considered among his most important bodies of work. Exemplifying the artist's signature conceptual and aesthetic interests, from his obsession with celebrity, fashion and popular culture to his fascination with tragedy and the appropriation of found imagery, "Blue Jackie" encompasses Warhol's significant contribution to visual culture.

Warhol’s pervasive influence on successive generations of contemporary artists will be the subject of a major exhibition, Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art from September 18th – December 31st. During this seminal survey of Warhol’s oeuvre, Waterhouse & Dodd offers an intimate juxtaposition of Warhol with established Post-War artists, many of whom were his contemporaries during the Pop Art movement’s apex in the 1960s.

Allan D’Archangelo’s work Four Squares (1964) appropriates roadside imagery, from the classic American open highway to deconstructed street signs, while Robert Indiana’s use of text and symbols further alludes to iconography of the American landscape. Jim Dine’s painting North West Hot Springs (2005) incorporates Warhol’s methodology of image repetition in relation to an object of personal or applied significance: in Dine’s case, the bathrobe. Tom Wesselmann, renowned for his signature Pop aesthetic, is represented by the steel-cut relief Monica: Nude With a Purple Robe (1990), a later example of the artist's acclaimed series of nudes.

With these works, alongside Calder's graphic, modern painting and Christo and Jeanne-Claude's collage of their legendary Central Park project The Gates, Waterhouse & Dodd's 25th Anniversary exhibition celebrates the legacies of these creative visionaries, as well as the gallery's own history and new beginning at 958 Madison Avenue.
