About The Gallery

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 and contemporary art, with an emphasis on 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, Wayne Thiebaud, and Anne Truitt, among others.


In 2017, Van Doren Waxter merged with its Lower East Side subsidiary, 11R (formerly Eleven Rivington), with Augusto Arbizo and Elizabeth Sadeghi named as partners. The consolidated gallery, under the name Van Doren Waxter, represents emerging and mid-career artists, including Caetano de Almeida, Marsha Cottrell, TM Davy, Jeronimo Elespe, Volker Huller, Gareth Nyandoro, Sarah Peters, Mariah Robertson, Brian Rochefort, and Jackie Saccoccio. The gallery’s combined program emphasizes an international and cross generational narrative, placing contemporary artists who are actively creating new work within the framework of historically important artists.


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


The gallery does not accept unsolicited artist submissions.
