Martin Janis Gallery

A motley assortment of prints and draw­ings by big-name artists of the late nine­teenth and twentieth centuries covers every available square inch of wall space, with the floor accommodating the overflow. The gallery, which also has paintings for sale, advertises works by Pollock, Matisse, Burchfield, Kline, Pi­casso, Plotkin, Motherwell, Braque, Eil­shemius, Gottlieb, Shahn, and others. These “others” include some fine prints and drawings by Kandinsky, Klee, and Cézanne. The quality is uneven, how­ever, with a framed reproduction of a Matisse hanging next to a truly fine Kandinsky lithograph.
