    "A Gathering of Treasures" at the Biennale 

    "Visitors stepping into the Rond Point, the focal center of the Biennale show, will be unable to ignore the display on the stand of Marlborough, whatever their personal interests. Three gigantic works are visible from afar. On one wall, “Three Studies in the Human Body,” an enormous triptych painted by Francis Bacon in 1970, seems to echo the nightmares that still haunted Europe a quarter of a century after World War II and its extermination camps.

    Across the stand, another huge painting greets, or rather hits, the eye. Done in 1958 by Georges Mathieu, the abstract composition is enigmatically titled “Hugues de Payens fonde le temple.” Spiky dashes of black color spurt across the red ground. An even larger painting by Andy Warhol, “Double Hamburger” — 294.6 by 614.7 centimeters, or 116 by 242 inches — covers the back wall. Done in the American artist’s spoofy manner inspired by his early career in advertising, big block letters run between two hamburgers cursorily dashed off.

    With Marlborough’s appearance in the Biennale, the art of the later 20th century spectacularly breaks into what remained until recently the preserve of French artistic traditionalism." - Souren Melikian, Published September 17, 2010

    Marlborough at Biennale des Antiquaires 

    Sep 15 2010 - Sep 22 2010

    "Few events could so completely satisfy an escapist fantasy of a life lived in luxury than the Biennale des Antiquaires. Now in its 25th decadent year, the festival brings together exceptional antique art, jewelry and furniture at the glorious Grand Palais from Sept. 15 to 22. Art dealers, collectors, jewelers and anyone curious about great art can wander exhibitions as refined as the objects on display." - Valerie Gladstone, nytimes.com

    Among others, Marlborough Gallery will be exhibiting work including Andy Warhol's “Double Hamburger” (1985-86), and Francis Bacon’s large-scale painting “Three Studies of the Human Body" (1970).
