Can 20x200 Be Saved? Anger From Collectors Mounts as Leading Art Site Flounders NEW YORK — On January 16, Esther de Hollander placed an order from affordable print purveyor 20x200 for her sister’s birthday.

Simon Hantai - Paul Kasmin Gallery Simon Hantai 8 May – 22 June, 2013 515 West 27th, New York Opening Reception: Wednesday, May 8, 2013, 6 - 8pm Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to present a selection of never before seen works by Simon Hantaï, organized in collaboration with the Estate of Simon Hantaï, 8 May - 22 June, 2013 at 515 West 27th Street, New York, providing a rare opportunity to experience the work of this significant post war artist. Expansive explosions of color and inventive geometry, these works testify to Hantaï’s brilliance as a colorist and mastery of his own signature techniques. Born in 1922 in Bia, Hungary, Simon Hantaï left his native country in 1948 and settled in France, befriending the surrealist community of Andre Breton. He became known for his large, abstract canvasses, distinct from the gestural influences of both American Abstract Expressionism and European Art Informal, Hantaï staked out a unique technique both automatic and expressive.
