    The Joseph Solman Virtual Gallery

    Welcome. Joseph Solman Viola and Paul Solman here, great-grandson and son of Joseph Solman, the American master who in 1935 co-founded the expressionist "Whitney Dissenters" group, The Ten, with Mark Rothko, Adolph Gottlieb, Lou Schanker, John Graham et al. and guest artists like Milton Avery and Lee Gatch.


    Represented by galleries from NY's J.P. Neumann and the ACA to The Mercury Gallery in Massachusetts, collected by museums from the Phillips Collection to the Hirshhorn, Solman is featured here with, among other works, newly unearthed collages and East Asian ink paintings, all from the family estate. Also featured are artists from The Ten such as Ben-Zion and others under Solman's influence, such as photographer Jeff Lion Weinstock.
