Since 1974, the John Szoke Gallery has specialized in works on paper, first publishing and dealing with contemporary artists and then, after taking a specific interest in the relationship between history and the artist, narrowing the collection’s focus to modern masters. This focus has tightened to the works of Pablo Picasso and Edvard Munch, two innovative printmakers who brought the print form to new artistic heights. With a collection this specific, the gallery can present not only editioned prints, but the process of their development, various states, color variations, proofs, and impressions pulled by different printers, illuminating the historical context of each work. The gallery’s foundation in inquiry, its interest in each artwork’s unique position in history, has forged both academic and trade-based partnerships. Throughout its over 45 years, the gallery has closely collaborated with major museums and important collectors, and has been an active member of the IFDPA (International Fine Print Dealer Association), building a worldwide reputation for expert evaluation and cataloging, dedication to research and art accessibility, and for housing the finest rare quality prints by Picasso and Munch. The range of these artworks appeal to those looking to start a collection, to active collectors, as well as to appreciators simply interested in history. All are welcome to experience the works in person at the gallery’s Fuller Building location, conveniently found on the corner of Manhattan’s 57th Street and Madison Avenue.
