FOUNDED IN 1960
Founded in 1960 by visionary connoisseur and dealer Allan Stone (1932 – 2006), the gallery known today as Allan Stone Projects has been admired for over half a century.
Celebrated for his eclectic approach and early advocacy of pivotal artists of the 20th Century, Allan Stone was a leading authority on Abstract Expressionism, the New York dealer for Wayne Thiebaud for over forty years, and a passionate collector of Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline, Arshile Gorky, Joseph Cornell, John Graham and John Chamberlain. He also promoted and collected the work of a younger generation of artists, including Robert Arneson, Jack Whitten, Robert Mallary, Lorraine Shemesh, Sue Miller, James Havard, and Robert Baribeau, among many others. In addition to modern masterworks and contemporary art, the Allan Stone Collection included tribal and folk art, Americana and important decorative arts and industrial design.
As of October 2020, Allan Stone Projects concluded its private sales activity. Many works from the Allan Stone Collection can be found at auction, and the gallery’s archives have been acquired by the Archives of American Art.
