The Art of Janet Sobel
17.03.22 - 03.04.2022
In support of the people in Ukraine, The Gallery of Everything presents an installation of paintings and drawings by Janet Sobel.
Born in Ukraine in 1893, Janet Sobel was a self-taught painter, whose figurative and abstract art was championed by Sidney Janis, Peggy Guggenheim and William Rubin. Today Sobel is widely acknowledged as the real pioneer of all-over drip paintings.
Recent exhibitions include Abstract Expressionism at the Royal Academy, London (2016), Outliers and American Vanguard Art at the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC (2017), and Women in Abstraction at the Centre Pompidou, Paris (2021).
The Gallery of Everything will donate 25% of profits from the exhibition to UNHCR and other charities which support Ukrainian civilians and refugees. A publication about the artist is also available for £20, which will also be donated to charity.
