Our Mission



Our main goal is to showcase artists that made history in the 20th century, are making history now, as well as the ones we believe will make history in years to come. We welcome suggestions from artists and art lovers. All suggestions will be considered by our volunteer panel, which is made by art dealers and curators. All selected artists will be listed on our “Fine Artists” page and only those will be considered for our 2008 Art Book. We also provide curatorial service for our artist in the cities of Miami and New York. Other services include catalogs, calendars and a wide range of promotional services. We are focused on helping artists promote their work, while they have more time to do what they know best: ART.

Jane Frank

Jane Frank (Jane Schenthal Frank) the American artist, was born Jane Babette Schenthal on July 25, 1918, in Baltimore, Maryland, and died in Baltimore on May 31, 1986. She is known as a painter, sculptor, mixed media artist, and textile artist. A pupil of Hans Hofmann, she can in much of her work be categorized stylistically as an abstract expressionist, but one who draws primary inspiration from the natural world, particularly landscape — landscape "as metaphor", she once explained. Her later painting refers more explicitly to aerial landscapes, while her sculpture tends toward minimalism. Chronologically and stylistically, Jane Frank's work in totality straddles both the modern and the contemporary (even postmodern) periods. She referred to her works generally as "inscapes".
Jane Frank's paintings and mixed media works on canvas are in the collections of the Corcoran Gallery of Art ("Amber Ambience", 1964), the Smithsonian American Art Museum ("Frazer's Hog Cay #18", 1968) , the Baltimore Museum of Art ("Winter's End", 1958), the Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University ("Red Painting", 1967), the Arkansas Arts Center (AAC: image here) in Little Rock ("Web Of Rock", 1960), and the Evansville Museum ("Quarry III", 1963). Her works are in many other public, academic, corporate, and private collections.
