About Whitfield Gallery...
Whitfield Gallery was conceived in 2004 in the central Plateau of Central Mexico in a town called San Miguel de Allende. Since then the gallery has had quite an evolution from representing many artists to concentrating on only a few with an emphasis on Michael French.. Whitfield Gallery curated many exhibitions in San Miguel ,México but since 2007, we turned our attention to curating more international exhibitions, working in conjunction with Michael French..
In 2007, Michael had a major exhibition in the Kinsman Robinson Gallery in Toronto. In the Fall of 2008 we helped mount a major retrospective exhibition in the Forbes Magazine Galleries and Museum on Fifth Avenue, New York (Michael´s first exhibition in the Forbes Museum was in 2000). This exhibition was very well attended by many notable collectors and celebrities. Christopher Forbes (Kip) has been Michael´s patron in New York since the beginning of the 90´s and to date has acquired eighteen of Michael´s works and gave one to HRH Prince Charles. The exhibitions at the Forbes Galleries led to some major exhibitions in the New York Area and abroad. From 2009 to this year , the Kinsman Robinson Gallery has had annual preview or major exhibitions of Michael´s work .
At Whitfield Gallery, we have Michael´s original paintings , as well as *giclées of the original paintings.Whitfield Gallery has had extensive experience in helping collectors with their acquisitions for their collections and in working with designers and decorators with special giclée editions and original paintings.
Michael´s original paintings can be found in Whitifeld Gallery in México and in the Kinsman Robinson Gallery in Yorkville, Toronto. Whitfield Gallery is the sole wholesale distributor of Michael´s giclées.
*What is a giclée?
The giclée is the very best method of reproducing fine art. It is printed on archival, acid free canvas or paper with pigmented inks (not dyes) such as those used by the artist.
Then the giclée is printed one at a time and varnished with the same varnish an artist uses on their oil or acrylic paintings .
Finally the giclée is signed and numbered by the artist.
From the heart of Mexico, the cradle of the Mexican Independence, Verónica Ramírez, Director of the Whitfield Gallery proudly presents Fine Art For The Discerning Collector.
