About The Gallery

Founded in 2013, Van Doren Waxter represents the evolution in the partnership between John Van Doren and Dorsey Waxter who have worked together for 20 years. Van Doren Waxter works exclusively with the James Brooks Foundation, the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation, the Harvey Quaytman Trust, the Alan Shields Estate, and the Hedda Sterne Foundation.  The gallery specializes in post war American Abstraction, including a number of artists from California: Richard Diebenkorn, Sam Francis, and John McLaughlin.  Additionally, the gallery handles secondary market work specializing in: John Chamberlain, Helen Frankenthaler, Hans Hofmann, Ellsworth Kelly, Franz Kline, Roy Lichtenstein, Georgia O'Keeffe, Frank Stella, and Wayne Thiebaud, among others.  
In 2017, Van Doren Waxter merged with its Lower East Side subsidiary, 11R (formerly Eleven Rivington).  The consolidated gallery, under the name Van Doren Waxter, operates full exhibition programs at both its Upper East Side and LES locations. Since its founding 10 years ago, 11R has had a program of internationally recognized emerging artists, which includes Caetano de Almeida, Jeronimo Elespe, Volker Huller, Ishmael Randall Weeks, and Jackie Saccoccio, among others.  Van Doren Waxter’s program emphasizes an international and cross-generational narrative, placing contemporary artists who are actively creating new work within the context of historically important artists.


Van Doren Waxter is a member of the ADAA (Art Dealers Association of America) and has participated in the following art fairs: Art Basel, Art Basel Miami Beach, The ADAA Art Show, Frieze New York, and The Armory Show.


The gallery does not accept unsolicited artist submissions.
