History

Founded in 2013, Van Doren Waxter represents the evolution in the partnership between John Van Doren and Dorsey Waxter who worked together for 15 years at Greenberg Van Doren. Van Doren Waxter works exclusively with the James Brooks Estate, the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation, the Al Held Foundation, the Harvey Quaytman Trust, the Alan Shields Estate, and the Hedda Sterne Foundation. 

The gallery specializes in American Abstraction from 1950-1990 including a number of artists from California: Richard Diebenkorn, Manny Farber, Sam Francis, Joe Goode, and John McLaughlin.

Additionally, the gallery handles secondary market works specializing in: Anthony Caro, John Chamberlain, Joseph Cornell, Helen Frankenthaler, Hans Hofmann, Ellsworth Kelly, Franz Kline, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Motherwell, Robert Rauschenberg, David Smith, and Frank Stella among others. Van Doren Waxter continues to produce special projects with artists including: Tim Davis, Judy Fiskin, Katsura Funakoshi, Alexander Gorlizki, Eva Lundsager, Cameron Martin, and Dorothea Rockburne.

In 2007 the gallery opened 11R (formerly Eleven Rivington) in New York City's Lower East Side. Directed by Partner Augusto Arbizo, 11R focuses on finding new talent and developing the careers of international artists who have had little previous exposure in the US.

Van Doren Waxter is a member of the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA).
