Louis Stern Fine Arts

Louis Stern Fine Arts, located in the center of the West Hollywood Design District, offers a dramatic re-investigation of important mid-20th-century West Coast abstract painters.

Louis Stern Fine Arts, located in West Hollywood’s Design District, focuses on Mid-Century West Coast Geometric Abstraction and represents the artists who defined and epitomized the California Hard Edge movement: Lorser Feitelson, Helen Lundeberg, and Karl Benjamin. The gallery represents the estate of Alfredo Ramos Martínez and oversees the development of the catalogue raisonné for the artist through its research arm, The Alfredo Ramos Martínez Research Project.

The gallery holds works by other influential Mid-Century abstract painters including John McLaughlin, Frederick Hammersley, Matsumi Kanemitsu, James Jarvaise, and Ynez Johnston; a stable of contemporary artists supplements the gallery’s historic program, including painters Richard Wilson, James Little, Mark Leonard, and Kellyann Burns and sculptors Knopp Ferro, Cecilia Miguez, and Chris Collins.

In addition to its exhibition program, Louis Stern Fine Arts has had a long and successful involvement in the secondary market, with a special concentration in Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, Modern and Latin American art.
