New York’s Galerie Rienzo exhibits 14 Jansem works in Los Angeles–along with and other rare works
After being in the art business for many years–Robert Rienzo opened Galerie Rienzo in 1985. Today–he owns an impressive collection that includes works by Post-Impressionists Charles Camoin–Elise Maclet–and Louis Valtat–as well as Salvador Dali–Eugne Galien-Laloue–Pablo Picasso–and French Armenian artist Jean Jansem.
"Jansem is the second most important painter of the School of Paris painters," says Robert Rienzo who specializes in the School of Paris and is the exclusive representative of Bernard Buffet for the United States. "Jansem is also the expert and top living painter now at age 84."
Rienzo has brought fourteen of Jansem’s works to the Los Angeles Art Show–taking place October 15-17.
Among them is Jansem’s ‘Reclining Ballerina with Tutu.’ "This work by Jansem is quite rare," says Rienzo–explaining that although images of ballerinas are not rare in Jansem’s work–it is difficult to obtain those with tutus.
Approximately 55 galleries–both domestic and international–are participating with 3,000 works by 250 artists of the 19th–20th–and 21st centuries. Rienzo’s collection covers 1950-1990.
The Los Angeles Art Show began on Thursday–October 14 and will last until Sunday–October 17 at the Barkar Santa Monica Air Center–South Field–3021 Airport Avenue–Santa Monica–California. Show admission is $18 a complete show catalog. Members of participating museums can buy tickets at half price.
