We are very pleased to announce the acquisition of a major Willem de Looper painting by the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C. This work will be in the permanent collection of this most prestigious museum and is exhibited beautifully in its own dedicated space. "The Duke," 1990 was previously shown at Atrium and some of our clients and collectors may remember it. One of his finest paintings from the 90's period, it again reflects de Looper's love for and inspiration from jazz as it refers to the great Duke Ellington. The East Wing of the National Gallery has been closed for more than 2 years for extensive renovations and this presentation is coordinated with its most welcome re-opening. We hope many of you will have the opportunity to view it when you next visit D.C. For more information, please contact the gallery.
