Prominent L.A. 60's, 70's, & 80', art gallery owned by Jacqueline & David Stuart to be offered at Kaminski
Alexander Calder, "Circle With Eyes," Lithograph.

BEVERLY, MASS.- Kaminski Auctions will present the estate of renowned Los Angeles gallerist, Jacqueline Stuart (1921-2016), wife of Los Angeles gallery impresario David Stuart of the seminal early 1960’s Primus-Stuart Gallery, and later, David Stuart Galleries.

Included in the sale is a lovely Alexander Calder tapestry (estimate 2,500-4,500), a striking early oil on canvas by Emerson Woelffer (estimate, 4,000-7,000) (a personal friend of Jacqueline’s husband, David Stuart) as well as a dynamic late 1970s abstract painting by the California hard-edge artist June Harwood (estimate 3,000-5,000). Claes Oldenburg “Wedding Souvenir” (estimate 5000-7000)—given to a select few attending the 1966 wedding of Judith and James Elliot—will also be available, as will an enticing collection of never-before-seen limited editions and works on paper by one of the earliest proponent of Pop Art —William Copley, aka CPLY.

Born in Kansas City in 1921 to Commodore John Kelvey Richards, Jr. and his wife, Dorothy Dyson Richards, Jacqueline Stuart spent a good deal of time abroad, visiting the museums of Europe and kindling a lifelong obsession with art. Upon graduating from William and Mary College she married George W. George, son of American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg, and brother of New York-based abstract artist Thomas George.

After the dissolution of her first marriage in the early 1960s, Jacqueline married Academy Award-winning screenwriter and producer Edward Anhalt. Soon afterwards she opened her eponymous Los Angeles-based gallery where she showed the work of numerous innovative young artists including Peter Voulkos, Bruce Conner, Martin Lubner, Alan Wolfson, Lukman Glasgow, David Furman, and a host of others.

Jacqueline’s third marriage was to the highly influential founder of Jazz Man Records, David Stuart (1910-1984). Immersed in the art world since his expat days in Paris (where he befriended such art world luminaries as Pablo Picasso and Max Ernst) Stuart founded the now iconic Primus-Stuart Gallery in 1961 together with his good friend Edward Primus. In 1963 David Stuart opened David Stuart Galleries, focusing on an eclectic mix of Pre-Columbian artifacts and emerging contemporary artists like Vija Celmins and Manuel Neri. Jacqueline joined ranks with her husband in the mid 60s and together the couple championed the work of such acclaimed artists as John Altoon, Dennis Hopper, David Furman, William King, Helen Lundeberg, Hassel Smith, Mel Ramos and Joan Brown, to name a few.
