TEFAF New York Spring 2022

May 6–10, 2022

Park Avenue Armory, New York


Donald Ellis Gallery is pleased to announce its participation in the 2022 edition of TEFAF New York Spring at the Park Avenue Armory, May 6-10, with an invitation-only preview May 5.

The gallery will present a fine selection of historical First Nations art from Canada and the United States. Highlights include a highly important degikup basket by Washoe artist Louisa Keyser (Dat So La Lee, 1829–1925), celebrated as the most accomplished Indigenous basketmaker of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Remarkable for its artistic innovation and technical virtuosity, this outstanding work is one of only a handful of baskets of this scale and importance for sale in the last half-century. The gallery will also present an exceptionally rare Oystercatcher rattle attributed the 18th century Tlingit artist Kadjisdu.acxh II, described as ‘the greatest carver of wood in the history of the Tlingit people.’
