We apologize for the inconvenience of not being able to view prices. It is not by our choice. Many of our artists and vendors don’t allow us to publish prices. We are working with them to ultimately have prices for everything on the web site and until then, you may inquire by e-mail and we will answer as quickly as possible.
PRICE RESEARCH / APPRAISALS / GENERAL INTEREST – PLEASE READ
If you are trying to determine the value of a work you own, or doing research for an appraisal or just trying to get an idea of the general price level of the gallery, please contact us through the general contact form here:
We will direct your request to the appropriate person to help you. Much work and research goes into determining the value of a work of art and an appraisal takes into consideration many factors besides the price of a comparable work. Please be respectful with the time of our art consultants.
Neil Nagy was born in 1941 in the East Los Angeles community of El Sereno amongst the Mexican culture, of which its buoyant joyfulness and bold colors would greatly influence his future artistic sensibilities. In the early 1960s Nagy gained exposure to the art of the Bay Area Figurative painters Manual Neri and Nathan Oliveira as an Art and Design student at San Jose State College. The laid-back attitude of the period resulted in a lighter and more humanist interpretation of the severe existential Northern European styles. This, along with the explosion of Abstract Expressionism, informed Nagy’s style and work. In 2006 he was selected for an important “Bay Area Figurative” exhibition where he showed alongside Diebenkorn, Park, Oliveira and others. Nagy’s focus became steeped in figurative expressionism, in which he used the human form in mild abstractions to articulate spiritual and physical existentialism. For him, the single human form was the most powerful means of delivering works of poignant beauty that also carried intense emotional messages. Although the figure remains central, the paintings continue to evolve,
expressing considerations occupying the artist’s mind from ancient Chinese and Mayan history to contemporary figurative art. Recently, Nagy’s work has been inspired by explorations of the cultural influence of Japan on the postwar modern art world and the exquisite, meticulous art of calligraphy.
